Homework Bookmarks!

June 28, 2016

Idea BulbWhile I was teaching preservice teachers, I wanted to model another way for teachers to communicate homework assignments to their students. The homework bookmark was born. I simply started with a new word document, ½-inch margins, landscape orientation, and added a table of 1 row and 4 to 5 columns. In each column, I typed in the homework assignment and added a quote and a graphic. Copied them onto plain white paper, easily cut them with a paper cutter, and distributed them to my preservice teachers. They loved them, and better yet, they started to use them in their field placements. Their students loved them.

Below is an example of quote bookmarks from The One and Only Ivan. Homework bookmarks are similar except they also include an assignment. They really are easy to make. Try them, you and your students just might like them!

We love bookmarks. Students love bookmarks.  And so, in many of our products, we include bookmarks.  We even offer free bookmarks to teachers on Teachers Pay Teachers. Check out our store, Surviving to Thriving LjL.
