GIFSL* 61: Cheap Bookmarks Week (Tuesday)
So if you take a page with Harry Potter as its header, and slice down either side to a bookmarky sort of size, you'll get, pretty much every time, some bit of recognisable vocab on the page (as well as the Harry Potter cue at the top). Lupin. Hogwarts. butterbeer. Expelliarmus. And you will also get a bookmark that kids like and which hasn't cost you a bean.
And there are lots and lots of pages in Harry Potter books, so you have lots and lots of bookmarks which you can share generously and without a qualm. It's recycling and it's useful and fun.
Tune in tomorrow for another cheap bookmark idea!
