I made this to use for the weekly "Star Student". It's a quick activity but makes a memorable keepsake from their classmates.
Included is 1 page where the students write. It is black and white, for the students to color in. There is also one with the word "star" colored, if you prefer. There is a star framed box where I had my students draw a picture of the Star Student. Some drew the Star Student along with themselves, others drew the Star Student doing something displaying their good character traits and others simply drew the Star Student and wrote the Star's name.
For "You are a STAR because", my students wrote down things the Star Student has done that demonstrates their positive qualities. For example, You're a STAR because..."you always raise a quiet hand on the carpet","you took me to the nurse when I got hurt on the playground", "you shared your crayons with me", "you always have a smile on your face and you work hard", etc.
Also included are 2 cover pages. One is in color and the other is in black and white. The date is EDITABLE!
I would have my students do this as morning work Monday mornings. This way, if a student was absent, I still had the rest of the week for them to complete it. I had the Star for the week color the cover page. I then bound the pages into a book, which I gave the student at the end of the week.
It's a simple, fun activity that my kids love doing each week. The best part is it makes a great keepsake, filled with positive comments!
