Vocabulary Bookmark Printable {Free}

If you read books (and I hope you do), you are likely to run into new-to-you words. I created a vocabulary bookmark to help you (or your child) keep track of new and interesting words. This vocabulary bookmark is for anyone who wants an account of new words. Teachers, children, teens, adults, homeschoolers- anyone can use it. In my years of teaching and reading, I have never seen this; I think it has the potential to be a great tool...and better than a sticky note. (After typing that sentence I looked it up...they did exist...I just didn't know it.)

My oldest is quite the bookworm; however, she likes to skim books instead of reading carefully. To help her with some intentional reading, comprehension, and writing skills, I have created a mini-unit for her to go with the delightful book  A Mouse Called Wolf. In addition to answering a critical thinking question (or two) for each chapter, she will create a dictionary of new and interesting words and complete a few fun activities. This vocabulary bookmark will help her remember the words to add to the dictionary. Check out these posts if you are interested in book questions or activities.

A Mouse Called Wolf Enrichment/Extension Activities

A Mouse Called Wolf Critical Thinking Questions

Two sets of vocabulary bookmarks are available.
 One set has cute mice on it, to go with A Mouse Called Wolf. The other set is plain and not cutesy.  Please download whichever you choose. You may use it for personal use or in your classroom. Use colored paper or cardstock to add some color, if desired.
We really like them. Please share these with others who might benefit from using a vocabulary bookmark. When sharing and saving the link, please use the link to this blog post and not the direct PDF file. Thanks!
