Next Week Your Child will be a Star!
While your child is the Star, each day of the week will consist of an exciting event or activity to honor him or her and to help us get to know our special classmate.

 Monday: Sharing Sack & Photos:  On our Star of the Week bulletin board, there is also room to display 4 x 6 pictures.  Have your child pick 6 of his or her favorite pictures to display and explain to the class.  The pictures will be returned at the end of the week.  Please help your child collect special items from home with which to fill a bag, and send it back to school with your child on Monday to share with his or her classmates.  Try to encourage your child to choose items that have some sort of meaning (hobbies, collectibles, souvenirs, etc) rather than just a collection of toys.

Tuesday: Favorite Book: Your star student will bring one of his or her favorite picture books to read to the class.

Wednesday: Parent Letter: Parents, you 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 in the morning.  The content of the letter is up to you, but you may want to choose from one of the following ideas: describe special memories 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, or send silly or special pictures with a letter describing the pictures.   Have fun and be creative as you celebrate your child! (Sometimes parents choose to send in a funny baby DVD or photo slide show for the class to see.)

Thursday: Lunch Buddy: If possible, join your child in the assembly hall 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 please let me know, and I will join your child for lunch instead. 

Friday: Class “Pet”: Your child will have the opportunity to bring home our class “pet”.  This is a stuffed animal that may participate in any or all of your child’s weekend activities.  Your child will then write an entry in our class journal about the “adventures” that he/she had with our class “pet.”  Your child should handwrite this entry and may also include hand drawn pictures or even photos.  Be creative; the sky is the limit! The class pet needs to return on Monday so your child can share all their adventures.

 * The events planned for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday can be swapped in order to accommodate your personal schedules.  Please let me know if any changes are necessary.
