Book Markers

Question: How pre-teach vocabulary for stories?

Answer/Quote: “Shorten the task of introducing vocabulary words by making book markers with words from each story or unit in the reader on them. In this way the child sees the word not disassociated from his book on a chalkboard or chart, but in context to what he is reading. It can be used to locate words in context, pages where the word is found, and the page where the child is reading.” P. 56.

Comment: Why didn’t I think of that? RayS.
