Reader's Workshop Tools: Bookmarks: We Read To

Because we've just had Christmas and it's my birthday on Tuesday, I thought I had to post another Reader's Workshop tool. One of the things which the students really enjoyed when we first began was getting their own book mark. I had some old Pokemon ones which I shared with them, but this year I think I'll begin with some nice laminated ones which will last a little longer.

Something like these: Bookmarks (PDF)

You should be able to cut them out, stick front and back together and then laminate. Enjoy!

Great bookmarks!

I'm a Primary Teacher-Librarian and I have names for each of our 5 table groups. This year I used quotes about reading that could be used with your bookmarks - Read to succeed, Blast off with Books, Readers are leaders, Switch on to reading and Reading takes you places.

Have a great birthday on Tuesday...

Kim :) (Another one!!)

Hi other Kim! It's amazing how much the students enjoy things like bookmarks - I find giving them one encourages them to read longer and more complex books
