I particularly like the end of February and it has everything to do with Read Across America Day and the beginning of National Reading Month (March 1)! With these two book-related events taking place I thought I'd highlight my free printable vocabulary reading bookmarks again.
Years ago, I created bookmarks for my students so they could keep track of vocabulary words during their independent reading time at the beginning of class or at home. There are 15 slots on the bookmark where students track their vocabulary during independent reading as well as record any new words they want to learn. There is also a column where students can write our context clues and page numbers!
Encourage students to use the Vocabulary Bookmarks during personal reading time to keep track of words and surrounding context clues. To earn credit, students can record on the bookmark either assigned vocabulary words or new words they want to learn. The Vocabulary Bookmarks are for elementary, middle school, and high school students.
Hopefully these bookmarks will help your students become more aware of how vocabulary is embedded in their reading.
