Back to School Magnetic Bookmarks

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?

Remember to click on each image before saving them to your computer, so you get the best possible resolution. If you need instructions for assembling the magnetic bookmarks, go here .

Have fun!


  1. How fun! I've decided that you and my friend, Karen (also a 6th grade teacher), are the best 6th grade teachers in the world!

  2. Those turned out fabulous! Love them :)

  3. August 30th! Are you kidding?! When is your last day then? Wow. Anyway, I have 7th graders this year so... guess I'll be holding off on the bookmarks until the Christmas edition. :) I love making your bookmarks. I am in charge of Teacher Appreciation Gifts this year that are done on a quarterly basis. I think I'll make the holiday ones, unless you have something else more teachery. Yeah, I made that word up.

  4. I love em'. I love all your ideas really. I was wondering if you created these using your digital scrapbook software?? (The creative memories one.) I'm interested in buying digi scrapbook software, to make all kinds of fun & cute things.

  5. I think I'll make the holiday ones, unless you have something else more teachery. Yeah, I made that word up.

  6. NICE! You're pretty impressive with that SBC+ :) Beautiful job! I'll be making these up and sending them in with my daughter. thanks for sharing them :)
