Each year I create a Student of the Week program of some sort to go with my classroom theme. Last year, I had a super hero theme and created this Super Student of the week form and letter to parents. I have included the easy to print and go, girl and boy forms as well as a sample letter home. You can use mine as it is and just sign your name, or you can print it and type if yourself and adapt it for your classroom.
Here is how I implement the Super Student of the Week program. I have weekly class meetings and this is the introduction to our meetings. We start each meeting by going over that week's super student and sharing their pictures and info. We then pick someone that will be the super student the following week.
I run off 30 or so copies of the boy/girl forms and have them in my class meeting folder ready to go. I also run 30 copies of the letter to parents and have it ready to send home.
The student gets one week to prepare their poster and find pictures or make a picture collage.
Then, they bring it in on Friday morning and we go over it! I then display it on a classroom bulletin board that I have pre-created and that is permanent in my classroom.
I hope you enjoy this resource!
Here is what the letter home says:
Dear student and parents,
Each week I select a student of the week or “SUPER STUDENT” to go with our Super Hero theme. This week your child is the Super Student of the week! Your child will need to fill out the attached Super Student form which will be displayed on one of my bulletin boards. They will present their information at our class meeting on Friday morning. So the form and/or pictures are due no later than Friday morning of the week your child is chosen. I recommend making a picture collage by visiting www.picmonkey.com.
If you would like to send in additional pictures, please understand that I will need to staple them to the wall, so some damage may be caused. I would suggest sending in pictures that you have copies of.
I will return the form and/or pictures the following week with their graded papers. Feel free to get crafty and help your child with this at home project!
Thank you so much for participating! I look forward to seeing your work!
