Island of the Blue Dolphins: 3 Category Jumbles Word Puzzles—Unique Spelling Workout!
Each of these puzzles is a category of items from ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS. Students unscramble each word and place the letters into a series of boxes. Then they arrange the circled letters in the boxes to spell out the category word at the top of the puzzle. Fun—and unique! NOTE: Teachers may want to provide letter hints.

My students LOVE these bookmarks. I have one for each of the 11 pieces of literature they read with me during the year. Not only does it keep their place, the bookmarks provide valuable information about each text, as well as helpful vocabulary that could be incorporated into assessments. I actually copy limited numbers of each in color and use as class incentives. My 10th graders LOVE to win contests to upgrade their bookmarks to color (way better than candy as a prize too). I cannot say enough positive things about these bookmarks! —Matthew R.
