Star of the Week is an opportunity for students to share about themselves
with their classmates. It’s also an excellent opportunity for them to learn
more about each other and each other’s families. Every week for the next
two months, one student will have a turn to be “Star”. Each day during the
week, our “star” will have an exciting event or activity to honor him or her.
Below is a list of events for each day. I’ll send each family a reminder the
week before so that you have plenty of time to gather your photos together.
Please help your child be prepared.
Monday: Share the “Star of the Week” poster.
A week prior to your child’s star time, I will send home a blank poster and a
short information sheet to be filled out about him/her. You may decorate the
poster any way you like with photos and drawings representing anything
about our star (family, pets, trips, sports, doing special activities, baby
pictures, etc.) Then glue the questionnaire to the bottom. This will be posted
on our bulletin board for the week.
Tuesday: Favorite Picture Book Day
Our star can read their favorite book to the class during reading time, (or I
can read it)
Wednesday: Sharing Day
The “Star” can bring something special to share with the class. This can be a
toy, a souvenir, a favorite video or a game. Or they may choose to share a
parent letter; please send a special letter sealed in an envelope to school with
your child and I will read it to the class. If you would like to share a pet,
please arrange with me in advance and plan on being present with your pet.
Thursday: Snack Day (optional)
This day is completely optional. If you would like to provide a special snack
for the class, please do so this day.
Friday: Star Friend Day
We will present our star with an award signed by all of his/her classmates.
