Raccoon Corner Bookmark

Lesson #12135

Motivate student reading with this crafty Raccoon Corner Bookmark.

Students will have fun decorating and using a raccoon to mark their place in a book.

Students can easily find the last page they were reading in a book by attaching a raccoon to the corner of a page. Student work can also be highlighted and held in place on a bulletin board by using the corner bookmark to function like photo corners in a scrapbook.
