2020 - 2021 STUDENT OF THE WEEK
Our Student of the Week unit will begin for students beginning October 19th. The activities in this unit will
serve to make each child feel special and develop oral language skills. In addition, every student will be
appreciated at the end of his/her week.
I greatly appreciate your help with this unit. Each student will be assigned one week during the year. A list
of daily activities follows:
MONDAY - This day will be for sharing backgroundinformation. Your child will be given an autobiography
poster which will be displayed all week. Students may also share any pictures or interesting facts through
5-10 minutes will be set aside for the Student of the Week to share everything.
TUESDAY - The Student of the Week will share pictures of collections or hobby items through email. A few
minutes will be set aside for explaining and answering any questions.
WEDNESDAY - The Student of the Week will briefly discuss a favorite time or experience in his/her
past. This might be a vacation, a sports event, etc. Brochures or souvenirs may be shared during the
Student of the Week time through email.
THURSDAY - All children are talented in or have knowledge about something. Students will share
this with the class by doing a 5-10 minute demonstration for the class through email.
Examples might be: recite a poem, tell a story, read a short book, play an instrument, dance, do a skit, or
demonstrate making a craft.
FRIDAY - After a week of sharing, the Student of the Week deserves a rest. He or she can relax while the
other students write a thank you letter. Parents are invited to write a letter to their child too, that I can
print and share with him/her.
I hope this will be a fun activity for you to work on with your child. These experiences will improve self-
esteem and increase awareness of and appreciation for other people’s interests. It will also serve to improve
planning, organizing, and speaking skills.
Your child will be told the prior week that he/she will be up for next week’s Student of the Week, S.O.T.W.
