Being our class "Star" is a very special time for the children
as they share all about who they are with their classmates.
Every child is an important person. Spotlighting children in
this way during the year emphasizes to themselves and
friends that they are valued. In class we will be doing
various activities and projects about our special stars during
their assigned week. If for any reason your child misses
a day during his/her "star" week, or there is a
holiday or snow day that falls within the week --- not to worry! The day
will be made up at another time.
Before your child's scheduled "Star Student" week, you may
want to work with your child on decorating a poster to share
with the class, highlighting him or her. Be creative! You may
use pictures, awards, certificates, stickers, glitter ...
anything that represents the star student and is of particular
interest to him or her can be displayed. Please send the poster to school with your child on the Monday
of his or her special week. I will send a reminder home when
it gets closer to the date.
The weekend before
your child’s assigned week, Oakley, our class Webkinz dog,
will be allowed to visit and sleep over! Oakley will be
bringing his backpack, travel journal and sight words along
with her. Please return him to school on Monday, as he is an important
part of our school day.
The "Star’s" Schedule...
Your child will share his or her decorated poster with the
class. Children always appreciate the help and support of
the adults around them, but please allow your child to
take a major part in creating this poster using his or her
own imagination and skill.
Sharing Oakley’s travel journal. Inside Oakley’s notebook

minutes for this activity. The special adult can be a
parent, aunt, uncle, grandparent or other close family
member or friend. Please let me know who will be joining
