STAR OF THE WEEK
Be a Star and Shine!
Each week, one lucky student will be recognized as star of the week in our Community of Learners!
MONDAY: Sharing Sack
The Tuesday before a student is Star of the Week, a tote bag will be sent home with the child. Students have a week to collect 3 special items with which to fill the bag at home and bring it back to share with classmates on Monday. Students should also bring 12 photos of their choice to display on the Star of the Week bulletin board and to share with the class.
TUESDAY: Favorite Book
The star student brings one of his or her books to share with the class. Students can read a favorite passage to the class and take three questions.
Parents will write a letter to the class telling us how special your child is to you. Send the letter in a sealed envelope to school with your child, and I will read the letter to the class during our morning meeting. The content of the letter is up to you, but you may want to choose from the following ideas: Describe special or funny stories about your child for the class to hear, write a sillly or serious poem about your child, tell us some neat things we may not know about your child, send silly or special pictures with a letter describing the pictures, or write a story with your child as the main character.
THURSDAY: Lunch Buddy
If possible, join your child in the classroom for a special lunch on this day. You may also choose to have a favorite relative to your child's lunch buddy. If you are unable to make it during our lunch 12:35-1:15, please let me know. (The day is flexible)
FRIDAY: Favorite Song and Star Recognition
The star student brings in a favorite song and plays it for the class on our CD player. Students will then ask three questions about the song. The star student will be recognized by his or her classmateswith a kind comment and be presented with a "Star of the Week" certificate.
