We will be kicking off Star of the Week in November for first graders. Star of the Week is an opportunity for your child to build confidence and self-esteem while telling the kids about him/herself. It is also a chance for your child to practice his/her oral speaking skills while presenting in front of his/her classmates. This is something all students value and look forward to. Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated!
Please check the dates listed below next to your child's name and write it on your calendar!
· Monday – Favorite Pictures Poster
Parents, please help your child to design a poster with highlights about his/her life using photographs. Your child will present and explain the poster to his/her classmates. You can help your child prepare their presentation to make it easier for him/her.
· Tuesday – Favorite Book in English (10 minutes read aloud book)
· Wednesday – Favorite Toy (prefer non-technology items to limit risk)
· Thursday – Favorite Music (prefer a burned copy of a cd to limit risk)
· Friday – Favorite Snack (to share with classmates)
Many parents enjoy sending in more than just a snack. It is a nice and generous touch but it is not necessary. It is much easier if the food is already in individual servings and is just a snack rather than complete meal especially if your child is in the afternoon session of English.
