Who doesn't know the author of this quote? Lucy said it because Schroeder loved Beethoven, of course, but Beethoven never had his picture on a bubble gum card, so he couldn't have been that great. If getting your picture on a bubblegum card (or baseball card) is good enough for Babe Ruth (and certainly Beethoven) its good enough for my students.
This is my answer to full size 8.5"x11" certificates that have cost me a fortune in card stock and ink. This is a 3.5"x 2.5" baseball card on card stock that will go into a baseball card page saver in the front my student's notebooks this fall instead of expensive certificates crammed into the back of their folder, all but forgotten.
The local diner we eat at has this very type of page inserted into their menu with the daily specials- like Open faced-turkey sandwiches and Eggplant Parmesan... yummmm.
Not only will they have a photo from the event, they'll have a fun visual record of their performances and repertoire.
