How To Effectively Use Fun Printable Bookmarks For Improved Reading Comprehension

I have never met a student who didn’t love bookmarks. You bust out a set of printable bookmarks and you’re going to see some excitement in your classroom! The beauty of bookmarks is that they can be for anything. I love passing them out for Christmas presents, or as Valentine’s Day Cards.

But what I find the most effective is if you use the bookmarks as an extension of your curriculum. One of my favorite subjects for printable bookmarks is reading comprehension.

When To Use Printable Bookmarks

It’s difficult right now, you might not have your students in your classroom, or if you do, you might not be able to assign paper products. If you are fully digital, please send your bookmarks home with your students if you can. Hold onto them until you can use them. If you have your students in your classroom, here’s how you can use your printable bookmarks for reading comprehension.

  • In place of an anchor chart, introduce the reading skill with the bookmark.
  • Send the bookmarks home on library day for at-home reading comprehension practice.
  • Add the bookmarks to your literacy stations for independent practice.
