While your child is the MVP, each day of the week will consist of an exciting event or activity to honor him or her and to help us get to know our special classmate.
Monday: Sharing Sack: A small tote bag has been sent home with your child to use as the “sharing sack.” Please help your child collect special items from home with which to fill the bag, and send it back to school with your child on Monday to share with his or her classmates. Try to encourage your child to choose items that have some sort of meaning rather than just a collection of toys.
On the MVP bulletin board, there is a photo holder that can display twelve 4 x 6 pictures. If possible, have your child pick 12 of his or her favorite pictures to display for the class. The pictures will be returned at the end of the week with no harm done.
Tuesday: Favorite Book: Your MVP student brings one of his or her favorite picture books to read to the class (or have the teacher read to the class) at our class meeting.
Wednesday: Parent Letter: Parents, you will write a letter to the class telling us how special your child is to you. Send the letter in a sealed envelope to school with your child, and I will read the letter to the class at class meeting. The content of the letter is up to you, but you may want to choose from one of the following ideas: describe special or funny stories about your child for the class to hear, write a silly or serious poem about your child, tell us some neat things we may not know about your child, send silly or special pictures with a letter describing the pictures, or write a short story with your child as the main character. You may also send a special video for the class to watch if you choose. (For example: taped messages or a funny baby video for the class to see.)
Thursday: Mystery Bag: Your MVP is asked to bring in one special artifact that is very special to them and hide it in a mystery bag. They must be prepared with three clues about the artifact for their classmates to guess, along with a background story about the item. Classmates are encouraged to ask questions about the artifact so students must be prepare to answer them.
Friday: MVP Friends: Your MVP student will be presented with a friendship poster created by his or her classmates. The poster will include the MVP’s picture, surrounded by compliments written by his or her classmates.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions about the exciting upcoming week!
