Free Common Core Standards Bookmarks

Greetings all!  Free Common Core Standards bookmarks are included with this post.  I developed these as reminders for my own students about what to focus on while reading.  These are great resources for the Common Core Standards.  Although I say they are for the Common Core Standards, these bookmarks are actually best practices for reading.  As a result, they can be used even if your school or region does not have Common Core Standards.  

As a K-8 instructional coach, I have to do a huge amount of research. This includes visiting top performing elementary and high schools, talking to college professors, and the list goes on and on.  The things listed on the bookmarks are a summary of some of the major things a student will need to be able to do to analyze what they have read.
