Make a very special pop-up card for a very special author.
Ask students to bring their favorite book to school to share with classmates. Have students describe the book, telling why it is their favorite book. Discuss several characters and explain the problems they solve in the book. Students should share with the class some comments they would like to tell the author.
Students create a pop-up card showing one character in the book. Fold two pieces of paper in half to make two cards (one for the inside and one for the outside cover). On one card, measure about 3 inches (8 cm) in from both ends of the fold and mark these points with a Crayola® Fine Line Marker.
At both marks, use Crayola Scissors to cut through the fold and into the card about 1 1/2 inches (4 cm). Push the section between the cuts into the fold in reverse, then close and press the card flat.
Cut another piece of paper into a half circle that will fit within the borders of the closed card. On the half circle draw a picture with your markers of one of the characters in your favorite book. Glue the half circle to the front of the folded shelf with a Crayola Washable Glue Stick.
From another piece of paper cut a word bubble. Write a question for the author from the character with a marker. For example, Ramona could ask Beverly Cleary what she liked to do when she was 8 years old. Glue the word bubble to the character's mouth.
Create a message for the outside cover of the card using colorful block letters. Glue the cover to the pop-up card. Open and write aown message to the author on the inside.
