Your Child will be Rockstar of the Week
We will go in random order so kids aren't picked because of the order of their last name.
2013-2014 list Under Construction
While your child is the Rockstar, 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. (The days can be switched!!!)
*Monday: Sharing Sack: Please help your child collect special items from home to bring to school 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 bulletin board, there is a photo holder that can display twelve 4 x 6 pictures. If possible, have your child pick 12 of his or her favorite pictures to display for the class. The pictures will be returned at the end of the week.
*Tuesday: Favorite Book: Your child brings one of his or her favorite picture books to read to the class (or have the teacher read to the class) at our class meeting.
*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. The content of the letter is up to you, but 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. 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. You can bring lunch from a favorite restaurant to the cafeteria, or you can order lunch at school.
Friday: Your child will be presented with letters 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 if you have any additional questions about the exciting upcoming week!
