This wonderful unit provides teachers with a way to recognize and celebrate students and parents. Parents are invited to come to class and share about their work. Students get to interview them with prepared questions. If parents wish, they may leave a reminder of the type of work they do. These visits make the student and parent feel special! At the same time, you are teaching the students to value the way each member of a community is important in the work that they do. This unit includes the forms you will need to set up weekly visits from one or both parents of a “Star of the Week” student.
Included in the packet are:
A Letter of explanation to the parents
Sign up sheets for the entire year
Questions for students to ask the parents when they visit
A list of questions to share with parents in advance
A letter to remind parents of their visit
A letter to thank parents for visiting the class
