⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Katherine L. says, “These bookmarks are GREAT! It really helped with engagement. Unfortunately, we use a class set, so students aren’t able to keep them in their books. They still liked this verses keeping up with whole papers.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ holly teaches says, “These bookmarks helped immensely! Students enjoyed going over questions (many which were thought-provoking and not just right-there-in-the-text questions) and ideas in small groups. Great way to keep them engaged and not lose their place in the book!
