Dear Parent or Guardian,
Congratulations!! Your child has been chosen as our Star Student for next week. This will be a week where we will celebrate how special your child is to our room. I have a variety of activities planned for the week and I would appreciate if you could ensure that your child is prepared for each day. Here is an outline of what the week will look like:
Monday-I have enclosed 5 index cards in this folder. Your child is asked to write a fact they would like to share about themselves on each card (ex.favorite food, favorite animal, number of siblings, etc...) They can be as creative as the student wants ( as long as they are appropriate for school) You may also send a picture of your child to be displayed on our Star Student Bulletin board. Parents are asked to write a letter or poem about how great their child is to be shared with the class. Please send this in a sealed envelope so the contents can be a surprise! Please send the index cards, the letter, and this paper back in the star folder.
Tuesday-Student may bring 2 treasures to share with the class. These can be favorite toys, trophies, or other special items.
Wednesday-Students can bring in their favorite book to share with the class. If it is a short book I will read it aloud. If it is a chapter book, they can pick a favorite excerpt or chapter to be read to the class.
Thursday-The other students will write a paragraph explaining why your child is a star, which will be turned into a book for the student to take home. During this time your child will have free time in the classroom to play games, read a book, or use the computer.
Friday-The student will have the "comfy seat" all day! They will also get to pick the next Star Student from our "pick sticks".
I hope that you are as excited about this week as I am! If you have any questions feel free to e-mail or call me.
