CURRICULUM - "Bookshelves" for Author's Pocket ~ Remember Me Pockets: JANUARY

Although it was Saturday evening, Alisdair and I decided to do a little bit of work on our Remember Me Pockets from January.  We hadn't download the free material until the month was almost over, so we are still finishing some of it up.  It was fun and didn't really feel like "work" ~ cutting out the book spines and then deciding which shelf they should be glued on.

We'd done the featured author's activities, (see three previous January posts), but we hadn't completed the three "bookshelves" yet.  The reasoning behind this project is to make students familiar with the various works by each writer.  If all twelve "Remember Me Pockets" are completed, the pupil will have a somewhat extensive knowledge of classical literature and can use the "bookshelves" for further reference.

There is an intital cover page for the featured authors of the month.  They are shown in numerical order by the the day of their birth.

Book of the Month Club

The first "bookshelf" is for J. R. R. Tolkien. 

A Selection of J. R. R. Tolkien's Works

Fairy tales we all, know and love, that are the work of Charles Perrault:

I've never heard of "Patient Griselda"
We will have to check that one out...

The final "shelf" for January contains our dear friend, "Winnie The Pooh" and other equally enchanting titles:

Books by A. A. Milne
