Use Bookmarks Instead Of Reading Comprehension For First Grade Worksheets
Maybe you need quick reading comprehension for practice. Using a reading comprehension worksheet for first grade would work, but it might be longer than you need. If you just need a quick activity for reading comprehension, try using bookmarks!
Here’s how you can use your printable bookmarks for reading comprehension.
- Download the free printable bookmarks from the link above.
- Print them as you need – I recommend using astrobrights paper. Or, print them on white paper and students can color their bookmarks.
- In place of an anchor chart, introduce the skills of reading comprehension with the bookmark.
- Send the bookmarks home on library day. Students use bookmarks as at-home reading comprehension for practice.
- Add the bookmarks to your literacy stations as help for reading comprehension.
