You Can't Postpone Joy.

These are so awesome. Will Azbill linked these to me and they  are super easy to create. Basically you are taking a square piece of paper and dividing it into four equal little squares. Then you need to cut one square out and two little bits off the sides. That would give you a fish tail or arrow looking shape. ( Instruction at the bottom) Basically you just fold the two little flaps over and it creates a pocket for the book mark to eat the corner of your paper. Add eyes, teeth, a nose, eyebrows, tentacles, or whatever else you can think of. AND, THESE CAN ALSO DOUBLE AS A FINGER PUPPET!
Thank you to the Easter bunny for buying our supplies of fancy shiny foil paper for these lessons.
These were my examples created each time I had to demo on how to make one.

This second grader made a robot bookmark.

This 2nd grader's bookmark had very pretty eyes.
The rest of these images will be Sixth Grade.> Instructions on how to create.

  1. Larry, I'm going to use this for a last day activity I think next year. THey usually have an assembly about reading awards and it would be cool to have that to give to them to encourage reading during the summer!
