MAIN CHARACTER OF THE WEEK
While your child is the “MAIN CHARACTER” of the Week, each day of the week will consist of an exciting event or activity to honor him or her.
Your child will be the “Teacher’s Aide” during this week as well!
Sharing Sack (Monday): The week before a student is the Main Character 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 3-7 photos of their choice to display on the main character bulletin board.
Favorite Book (Tuesday): The Main Character of the Week brings one of his or her books to read to the class. Students can read the book aloud to the class if it can be read in less than 10 minutes long or give a book-talk if the book is longer.
Parent Letter (Wednesday): 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 at 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 video for the class to watch if you choose.
Lunch Buddy (Thursday): If possible, join your child in the cafeteria for a special lunch on this day. You may also choose to invite a sibling or a favorite relative to be your child’s lunch buddy. You can have the buddy be a surprise or let your child know ahead of time. If you are unable to make it during our lunch period (11:40am), please let us know, and we will plan a special lunch for your child.
Main Character Recognition (Friday):
Show and Tell bring something special you would like to share with the class.
The student will be recognized by his or her classmates and presented with a certificate.
* The events planned for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday can be swapped in order to accommodate your personal schedules if you are planning to be a lunch buddy during the week. Please e-mail me if you have any questions.
