Creative Star Student/Student of Week Ideas?

Does anyone have a "star student" or "student of the week?" I would like to implement this. I need some good ideas! I want to have the "Star Student" bring items for show and tell, create something, possibly a poster about him/herself. Does anyone do anything really neat? Thanks!

My partner teacher has a student of the week. She gives that person a poster to fill out the week before (the posters are "All about Me" posters from Scholastic. You can purchase at any teacher store). They bring it in on Monday, share about themselves, one section of the poster for 4 days (monday - when is your birthday, Tuesday, tell me about your family, Wed, tell me about your pets, etc). On the last day, the class does a whole group writing assignment that says, "We know about Jason. He is 6 years old. He likes baseball. Jason is our friend." Then, each child writes about that student, and then draws a picture to go with it. The pages are made into a book & that student takes it home. She also laminates the poster (without the photos attached). Also, that person is the helper the whole week - turns on/off lights, line leader, passes out papers, leads the Pledge, etc.

Like Suehue's partner, I also send home an "All About Me" poster the week before. I found some cool ideas last year from the following website http://hill.troy.k12.mi.us/staff/bne...web3/index.htm.

I am going to attach my word doc letter that I send home as a reminder to the parent's so you can change it to whatever you like...that is if you are interested in doing things this way. I did post on my webpage calendar the star of the week schedule so parents can plan accordingly.

Also, I am attaching a couple of All About Me mini posters to use if you rather not purchase the large posters. I will have to send them in a couple of postings since I can only do 1 attachment per posting

I don't start Star of the Week until January. I read this book to the class to kick it off then let the Star each week take the book home for the weekend. (We pick new stars on Friday.)

http://www.amazon.com/Star-Week-Barn...7535611&sr=1-2

During the week (Tues-Fri), the star can bring in something different each day including:
a favorite snack one day (some do but most didn't this year)
a favorite toy or book
The Estimation Jar
The Mystery Can

But on Monday, they are to return the little shapes (that I think came in the resource guide with this star pocket chart) telling birthday, person they admire, what they want to be when they grow up, favorite food, book, animal, etc. They also send in a couple pictures--their family and themselves doing something fun.

I like the idea Suehue included in her post: writing about the Star on Friday!

What special things can parents (of the Star of the Week) do in class? Any ideas, interesting topics of the past? Thank you.

I use a photo album sleeve, the kind with several different slots that you can slide pics into. I have a board that says Rockstar Student and we put up facts about that student and they can bring pics to put into the sleeve. Then I have each student give me one compliment for that student. I type it as they tell me and then print it out. We hang it up all week and then they get to take it home at the end of the week.

For my "Buzzy Bee" of the week, I allow that student to sit in the "special" rocking chair at the carpet and wear bee antennas. I give them the opportunity to open the door when someone knocks, or any other small responsibilities that seem to make they're day. They really do feel so special during that week!
