Printable Bookmarks with Thinking Skills/Thinking Stems/Summaries

I’ve blogged about the successful use of thinking skills in promoting reading comprehension and the huge increase I saw in reading levels here: Reading Levels Jump 5 Months in just 2.5 Months!  

I started thinking how great it would be if each student had a bookmark detailing the thinking skills AND thinking stems/summaries.  So I made a bookmark that includes the thinking skills on one side, and the format for thinking stems and summaries on the back.  The thinking skills mirror those on my Good Reader poster.  The students love them and use them regularly.  Feel free to print the bookmarks out for your own students. 

Side one is here: Bookmark Front
Side two is here: Bookmark Back

Also, if you are interested, here are the rubrics I use for my thinking stems and summaries....

Have fun, and happy reading!

Analyze before Betting

Analyzing the venues can give us an idea on where the value may lie in the top batsman and bowler markets. The obvious first thing is whether the venues suit pace or spin bowlers. Traditionally, subcontinent pitches favor the spinners, while English, Australian and South African conditions favor the pace bowlers. Generally, the bookmakers will have taken this into account, but if we look a little deeper, we can often find good pointers for our…See More
