Flag Your Thinking
by Smekens Education
Encourage your students to “have a thought” while they’re reading using the “Flag Your Thinking” bookmarks. Provide each student a bookmark and a couple of sticky flags in corresponding colors. Adhere the flags to the front sides of the bookmark until needed. While reading, students can code their thinking by applying the colored flags to their reading passages indicating the types of thoughts they are having.
The 6 comprehension strategies included on the bookmark are:
- Blue—Asking Questions
- Yellow—Making Connections
- Purple—Visualizing Ideas
- Red—Determining Important Ideas
- Pink—Synthesizing Ideas
- Green—Monitoring Meaning
The reverse side of the bookmark includes sentence stems for each strategy.
