Star of the Week

  •    One week during the school year, your child will be in the spotlight.  This week is dedicated especially to your child and his/her family.  One day during the week, family members are invited into the class.  For example, mom and/or dad can come in and talk to the class about their job or grandparents can come in and read a story or two.  Please plan on a 15 minute presentation or read aloud.
        I would also like each first grader to sit down wtih his/her parents(s)/ guardian(s) and complete an "all about me packet" and make a poster together.  This poster is to be brought into school at the beginning of your child's week and will be displayed in the classrooom for the entire week. Please print your child's first and last name at the top.  It should also contain some (but not all!) of the following:
        favorite color                   favorite holiday                    favorite food

        favorite friend                  favorite place to visit            favorite TV show

        favorite hobbies               current picture of child          baby pictures

        picture of house/apt.        pictures of family members   pictures of pets

        pictures from vacations    favorite thing to do in school

        Pictures from magazines, photos, and/or original drawings can be used.  Please help your child to label what things are on the poster.

        This week is yours, so plan something special!  Please run everything by me in advance if you plan on visiting the classroom (at least one week prior would be great!) by phone, note, or email, so we can fit you into our busy schedule and there will be no confusion.   Thank you!
