While we were constructing our "bookshelves" last weekend, we also made these "Honourable Mention Author Tags" to remember six more writers. This is another method of getting students familiar with the vast array of literature available for their reading pleasure.
We printed the tags and grapics on card stock and cut them out. Then we glued the proper graphics on each tag. The finishing touch was to add a little bit of the gold ribbon that was left over from wrapping wedding cake (two years ago!) They turned out pretty nicely, if I do say so myself!
The featured information on each author includes: Name, Birth Date and Birthplace, Death Date (if appropriate), their Pseudonym(s) and a List of their Literary Works.
