Star of the Week and Happy Birthday Notebook File 42 slides and 18 printable student pages, 24 birthday display pages, and 2 posters to print.
There are 13 different Happy Birthday slides, and 14 different Star of the Week slides from which to pick. Many slides have some animated clip art. Type in the name of the special child, and sing "Happy Birthday" with a slide displayed. Writing page PDFs included.
A class booklet could be made with the printable covers and student writing pages for either the Star of the Week or Birthday person. Each child in the class can write a page using the writing frames. Assemble the booklet to send home as a class remembrance, and print the slide for an "award" to be sent home. This would help meet the following standards as these are shared writing projects.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.1.7 Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., explore a number of “how-to” books on a given topic and use them to write a sequence of instructions).
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.K.2 Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative/explanatory texts in which they name what they are writing about and supply some information about the topic. (The topic is each other!)
Also included: Printable posters for birthday and star of the week for printing on paper 18" X 24" which are also shared class writing projects, although on posters.
