Student of the week

Over the summer I blogged about using Student of the Week posters.  You can read about it {HERE}.  Now that things are in full swing I wanted to come back and update how it's going.

Here is the poster I'm using.  I made it to go with my sports theme.  You can pick it up from TpT store {HERE}. I also have regular student of the week posters available in my store.

I decided to hand out the posters to all of my students at the beginning of the year.  This way they're ready to go whenever that student gets called.  To choose a student I use my number sticks.  On a piece of paper I write everyone's number and cross them out when they are student of the week.  That way I can make sure everyone gets their seem to forget whether or not they've been honored :)

I pick my student at the end of the day on Friday.  Once they are picked, they come to the front of the room and share their poster.  Then, I put their poster on my All-Star of the Week bulletin board

sorry for the glare
When the kids go home, I put the student of the week chair cover on their chair.  This stays on their chair for the entire week. 

On Monday morning as part of morning work, I hand out the All-Star writing paper.

The students write a letter to the All-Star of the Week.  After I've collected and bound them, I put the book up on the bulletin board. 

When the next student is chosen, I give the previous All-Star his/her book and poster.  Then we start the whole process over.

I have to say that this is working out well for me.  The kids are excited and it's been fun learning about them and seeing them share on a personal level with each other.  Management wise, it's going well too.............the kids know the routine and keep me going with it!

I'd love to read about how you celebrate students in your room!
