Star Student

I know many classrooms have some type of Star Student each year.  When I taught first grade,  I always had a Star of the Week including a variety of activities.  I felt that since I moved up to Second Grade this year that maybe the kiddos just didn't need a week long celebration anymore.  You know, since they get that in Kindergarten and First Grade.  Does that make me sound mean?

I decided to do a Star of the Day or daily Star Student this year.  I had a schedule and info sheet that I sent to parents at the beginning of the year.  Students know which day is "theirs" and can bring in their necessary items.  On their day, they bring their completed form and place it on the Star Student Board.  They also bring in up to ten photographs to put on the picture board.  They get to share their page and pictures with the class and then the students get to ask ten questions.  Yes, I limit the questions.  If I didn't, it would go on for-ev-er.  And of course, it's a great chance to talk about questions versus stories or connections.

Here's the page I have my students complete.  I got here from Made for 1st Grade.

This goes on the chair of our daily Star Student!  I posted about it here!

Here's a little treat I put on the Star Student's desk in the morning!
If you like the Starburst treat label I made, leave me a comment with your email address and let me know you'd like a copy!  I'll send it right over to you!
**Update: This Star Student bag label is no longer available, sorry for any inconvenience.

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday and long weekend!
