Gold award stickers (for student-published books)

Our school-wide literacy celebration takes place next week and my students are putting the finishing touches on several projects.

The biggest one of all is a student-created (and published) book. They have illustrated, written, edited, typed, and retyped their books. They are so proud!



Last year, I made some gold stickers to put on the students' books as a surprise, the night of the literary event. They loved them! It was the first thing they exclaimed over...and this is 5th grade!

Unfortunately, my class this year has seen the stickers already, since our classroom library has past students' work. But still, it's a fun finishing touch! Plus, they'll be expecting them now ;)

Our books are made with Image-Making techniques (see more about that by clicking the link) but the file I am attaching has a generic award name that you can customize.








The labels are from Staples and come four to a page. I align this little paper on the right side of my printer and that's it! Pretty easy! The file is below...

Does your school have a big literary event? Has it happened yet? What do you do to celebrate?
