Dear Parents of _________________, Next Week Your Child will be a Star! While your child is the Star Student, 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 : A small backpack has been sent home with your child to use as the csharing sack. d Please help your child collect special items from home with which to fill the 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 rather than just a collection of toys. On the Star Student bulletin board, there is a photo holder that can display ten 4 x 6 pictures. If possible, have your child pick 10 of his or her favorite pictures to display for the class.
The pictures will be returned at the end of the week with no harm done. *Tuesday: Favorite Book : Your star student brings one of his or her favorite picture books to read to the class (or have the teacher read to ... more. less.
the class) at our team meeting. It is most successful when students choose a short storybook which can be read in under 15 minutes.<br><br> Chapter books or non-fiction books don 9t usually go over very well because it is too difficult to share them in the short time frame. *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 at class meeting.<br><br> The letter may be very simple and the content is up to you, however, if you have the time, you may want to choose from one of 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 special video for the class to watch if you choose. (Sometimes parents have taped messages or choose to send in a funny baby video for the class to see.) *Thursday : Lunch Buddy: If possible, join your child in the cafeteria for a special lunch on this day.<br><br> You may also choose to invite a sibling or a favorite relative to be your child 9s 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 (11:25-11:50), please let me know, and I will plan a special lunch for your child instead.<br><br> (I could also arrange for a different lunch time, if needed.) You can bring lunch from a favorite restaurant to the cafeteria, or you can order lunch at school. Please let me know ahead of time if you are planning to order a school lunch so that I can place your order . Friday : Star Friends: Your Star student will be presented with a friendship poster created by his or her classmates.<br><br> The poster will include the Star 9s picture, surrounded by compliments written by his or her classmates. * The events planned for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday can be swapped in order to accommodate your personal schedules if you are planning to be a lunch buddy during the week. Please let me know which day of the week your child will be bringing a favorite picture book, which day of the week you will be sending the parent letter, and which day of the week you will be doing the lunch buddy so that I can plan accordingly and notify the lunchroom.<br><br> Write the chosen day of the week for each activity on the lines below, and return this page to school by Monday . __________________ Favorite Book __________________ Lunch Buddy (Please let me know if you need me to order a lunch for you or arrange a different time.) __________________ Parent Letter Please let me know if you have any additional questions about the exciting upcoming week!
