Many teachers like to do a star student or a student of the week to get to know all the students and let the students share what they love with the rest of the class. I found a fun way to do this virtually!
On one of the Facebook Groups I am apart of, a teacher created a Star Student Classroom (shown below). You can easily create your own to make it a little more personalized for you and your students.
You can create a classroom where the super star/student of the week can personalize it, adding some of their favorite things OR I have it linked to the students About Me Page. I have the same one for myself as an introduction to the whole class. I added my favorite things on there and added pictures (with links) for some of the things to share. You could have students add images as well, draw a picture, or just type in what they favorite things are, depending on the student grade level/ability level.
I think this is going to be KEY when we are meeting our student this year, that way we can get to know them and they can get to know each other! It’s going to be just as important to create a classroom culture of caring and sharing, especially since most of us are starting off the school year virtually!
You can have every student create on and then have 1 or more students share each day during Morning Meeting so that you can highlight some of their favorite things and can start building connections between students and yourself!
