Here’s a super helpful tip for your readers! I’ve always called these “sliders” because they slide through books.
These are usually purchased for one of the following reasons:
a. Child is having trouble “tracking” (losing their place in a long piece of text)
b. They sound too much like a robot and need to read smoothly without losing their spot.
c. They keep using their finger and it’s getting in the way.
d. They’ve used index cards, but they can’t see through them to see if more sentences are coming up.
e. They need a snazzy bookmark!
I’d say it’s great for kids reading chapter books and nonfiction materials. So approximately age 7+.
I actually use these from Read Naturally, but the ones above you can get with free shipping!
