Honoring a Student of the Week: Wednesday’s Activity
- Grades: 3–5
Parent Letter: Parents are asked to write a letter to the class about their child, the Star of the Week. They send the letter in a sealed envelope to school with their child, and I read the letter to the class at class meeting. The content of the letter is up to the parents, but I give them 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 interesting 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.
Parents are also given the option of sending in a video of their child at a special event or of their child as a baby for the class to watch. (The students loves when videos are sent in for the class to watch.) This day is so enjoyable for the student of the week and for the other students in the class!!
