June Reward Bookmarks

The month of June has arrived, and students are leaving the classrooms and getting ready to have fun in the sun during the hot summer months. Most of your children are graduating from your classroom to move on to the next… some kids are even graduating from primary or elementary school and are moving on to new schools, new classrooms, and new teachers. It’s an exciting time!

Your students have worked hard this year… why not show them some appreciation for the work they’ve done with these free downloadable bookmarks. Your students might appreciate the gesture, and it couldn’t hurt to help to promote reading during the summer months, so that they’ll be fresh and ready for their new adventures during the next school year.

I hope you and your kids have a wonderful June, and a terrific summer!

May Reward Bookmarks

The month of May is a fun and colorful month. In the United States, Mother’s Day takes place on the second Sunday in May, and Memorial Day occurs on the last Monday of the month. In Canada, Victoria Day takes place the weekend before May 25th, to celebrate the birthdate of Queen Victoria on May 24th. Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom the May Day holiday is observed on the first Monday of the month. Meanwhile, graduation is just around the corner… time to start wrapping up classroom lessons and get ready for summer. In the fall a new adventure will start for your students in a new school year and, for many, a new teacher and classroom, too.

Your students have likely been working hard all year… it’s always nice to recognize their efforts. Here are some May-themed bookmarks that you can hand out to your students for particular efforts they have made, or simply for having been a good class throughout the semester. They’re fun and colorful, and can help to promote reading among children.

I hope you and your kids have a wonderful month of May!

April Reward Bookmarks

April is upon us! Spring has finally arrived, and Easter is coming! The Easter Bunny is putting on his paint-covered overalls and cramming his Easter basket full of eggs, ready for delivery to kids all over the world (I don’t know why, but I always imagine he wears bright blue overalls slathered with paint whenever he goes out delivering eggs).

Easter is a holiday to get excited about, but it isn’t the only special day celebrated during the month of April… Arbor Day and Earth Day both take place this month. April is a great month to teach students about the environment, about saving the planet, and about what it takes to “go green”. Reduce, reuse, recycle… help to teach kids to respect the environment at an early age and it will carry on into their teenage and adult years. Plus, it’s fun!

If your students have been working hard in the classroom, why not reward their efforts with some April-themed reward bookmarks? They’ll appreciate the recognition for their work and classroom participation, and these reward bookmarks might come in handy after those late nights spent under the covers with a flashlight, reading a favorite book. Let your students know you appreciate their hard work while promoting reading and literacy at the same time.

March Reward Bookmarks

It’s the first day of March, and although spring isn’t quite here yet (I keep saying that spring is in the air, and Yvonne keeps correcting me) it certainly is getting greener outside, and St. Patrick’s Day is on the way – a very green holiday indeed.

If some (or all!) of your students have been working hard at school, why not reward their efforts? They’ll appreciate the recognition for their work and classroom participation, and it might even come in handy after those late nights spent under the covers with a flashlight, reading a favorite tale. It can’t hurt to make your students feel good about their hard work while promoting reading and literacy at the same time.
