Magnetic Book Marks {Homeschooling Essentials}

Welcome to day two of this weeks 5 Days of Homeschooling Essentials posts brought to you by the Homeschool Review Crew.  We have 89 homeschool Mom's like you sharing their top homeschool essential lists with you.

Today I would like to share about my second most essential homeschool item: the magnetic book mark.  I have owned and lost so many book marks over the years that I have lost count of them.  I have been using these for the last couple of years and I am impressed with their performance and price.  They are a great investment in any home that has books.  


Each clip measures 57 mm from tip to tip when open, 18 mm wide and 28 mm from edge to tip when closed.

Because they are magnetic they do not fall out of the book.

Meaning you can use either side to mark the exact spot on the page you stopped reading.

They are 2 mm thick when closed and do not damage the book you are reading.

They are available as 

They are fairly popular and sell out fast but be persistent till you get the ones you want.  I buy mine from Book Depository.  They come in a pack of eight and Sir N loves choosing the one we use for each new read aloud.

  1. What a great idea! I'm not sure how I've never seen them before, but they would definitely be helpful!

  2. This is a great idea! I am the worst for losing bookmarks. They never quite get lost completely...they just hide between the couch cushions, between books on the bookshelf, and so on......

    I do the same thing to pens! :(

    Somehow I think these might not be so easy to lose, Chareen!

  3. I love these. I haven't seen them before. I'm really bad about losing bookmarks, and even though I have some pretty ones to choose from , I end up with a torn off piece of paper stuck in my book. :-)

  4. I just bought some with butterflies. These look wonderful. I should have bought more....my children will be sneaking off with them :)

  5. I like magnetic book marks too, only problem is when I use them with a library book, sometimes I forget that they are there and then I lose them.
