After signing her reading log every night for the past 5 years, I came up with something that will save paper and time. I made some Bookmarks that she can use for her reader's response work. These will save paper because each page comes with two bookmarks for the same objective. So, you cut your consumption of paper in half. Plus, students will save time because they do not have to flip through a folder or list of prompts for their writing.
Each bookmark, itself, serves as a prompt. Teachers simply choose the skill or skills that she wants to cover that week when preparing student work. It is also a great way to differentiate homework assignments according to the student's needs. What I really love about this is that students can carry these printable bookmarks in their books and start writing on them as soon as they have a chance.
Come on by my Kinder Alphabet blog to get some free bookmarks. I have them in English right now with 72 different bookmarks that you can use with practically any book. It is also available in Spanish.
