I do Star of the Week with my students as well. In my room, we randomly choose a star student on Friday afternoon. The following Monday, that student will come to school with a handful of photographs, a favorite book, and any other items they'd like to hang on the "Star of the Week" board. They will have also filled out the following mini questionaire (#1 is the letter to parents, #2 is the question sheet).

At the end of language arts on Monday, our star will seat in a special seat at the front of the class and be interviewed by the rest of the students. After everyone has taken notes on this interview, each student will draft a letter to the Star of the Week. The star has the pleasure of writing a letter to the principal (who will write back)! He/she will tell the principal what's been going on in our classroom lately, what they enjoy, etc. And, while the student is star, they also get to be line leader and sit on the sofa with me during reading time.

I love it! And at the end, they get a folder full of letters to take home!
