All week long the “Star of the Week” will have special privileges, including being the line leader for the week. They will also have their mystery poster displayed on the “Star of the Week” bulletin board in the classroom. Below you will find some of the activities that your child can look forward to doing while he or she is our Star.
Monday: Music-Your child can bring in a CD or collection of their favorite songs for the class to listen to while we are working throughout the week. This may be any kind of music as long as it is appropriate for school.
Tuesday: The star student should bring in their favorite book and be prepared to do a brief book talk with the class about it.
Wednesday: During the week before a student is star of the week, have your child collect 3 special items to put into a bag and bring into school to share with classmates. These items will be returned home at the end of the day.
Thursday: Please write a letter to your child telling him or her how special (s)he is to you. Send the letter in a sealed envelope to school with your child and I will read the letter to the class at a class 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 silly 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 short story with your child as the main character. You may also send a short video for the class to watch or a power point highlighting your child if you choose. This could be a video of your child when they were a baby or doing something for the first time.
Friday: Your child will also share their poster with the class, and the other students will have a chance to ask questions. Lastly, your child will receive a Star Book which includes how special your child is in the eyes of their classmates.
If you would like to eat with your child any time during this special week, please come to the cafeteria to do so! Our lunch period is 12:21-12:51 every day.
