Start The School Year With STAR of the WEEK

Who doesn’t love being the star?!  

My students can hardly wait until Friday when I draw for the next week’s big star of the week.  I reach into the cup of names and (drumroll…) The lucky star of the week goes home on Friday with an information sheet and poster to fill out and return on Monday.

On Monday, the Star returns to school and the poster goes up on our bulletin board.  All week, the Star of the Week is the teacher helper. They are the

  • Line leader
  • Poem leader
  • Calendar leader
  • “go-fer” (go for this, go for that on errands)
  • Pencil sharpener, etc.  

Included in the Star of the Week Pack is a list of suggestions for the week!

On Friday, the Star of the Week gets to wear “the cape”, but a special hat, button, etc. works too.

I like to have the Star of the Week present on Friday. In the parent note, parents are told to send in photos, a favorite toy, and a favorite book to share. I have students use the document camera to present their posters and the items they have to share.

Friday is also the day when students write about the Star of the Week and the Star makes a book cover.  We staple the book together for the Star to take home.

See what teachers like you are saying:

My students love the star of the week. So many fun things to do with it, the students favorite part is the star of the week writing. They love writing great things about their classmates and it makes such a lovely keepsake for the star student.

This program is great for getting to know about each student during the first semester and in the second semester, we move to the reader of the week! That way students have had a chance to shine as the “Star” and are ready to shine as the “Reader of the Week.”
