Star Student of the Day

This daily classroom routine engages interactive literacy skills – speaking, listening, reading, and writing – and best of all, confidence and classroom connections. With this routine, the teacher writes articles based on each star student. The collection of class articles become teaching tools/text used for scaffolded literacy practices such as word recognition and writing, sentence patterns and writing, and illustrating to show meaning.

For the win-win, each student gets a chance to be in the spotlight and all students help each other learn everyday!

Reflection Question:
Beyond building community, how does this activity strengthen literacy skills?
