Now I realize that some of you have already sent your kids back to school, but in my neck of the woods, school doesn't start until August 30th. Hence the seemingly late bookmarks. The girls and I have been traveling, without men thankfully, and we've had family visiting since we got back, so I got these up as fast as I could without neglecting all the lounging around and loafing I've been doing. Real important stuff.
Regardless, I've been thinking about doing some back to school bookmarks for months, because I want to give some to my new batch of sixth graders. There are so many uses for the bookmarks, besides the obvious of keeping the place in the book they're currently reading. They're also good to mark planner pages, textbook pages, notebooks, etc. Using them saves a lot of flipping around, and when I've got a classroom full of students, it's important to keep things moving.
I'm so easily distracted, you know.
Anyway, because you know I never forget about my peeps, here are some for you. If school hasn't already started, wouldn't it be fun to leave them at the table for your kiddos on the first day of school?
