This classroom community-building activity helps classmates get to know one another at the start of the school year. Each day during the first month of school, a "student of the day" is randomly chosen. That student tells about him/herself. The rest of the class completes this worksheet by drawing a portrait of the student of the day. These worksheets are compiled and comb-bound to make a book which is sent home with the special student. By the time the last student has a turn, everyone knows one another a little better and each student has had a chance to feel special.
All items to implement the activity are included, including detailed directions, two Student of the Day worksheets (one easier and one more difficult), and a cover page for a student book.
