First, let me clarify. All readers of The Mailbox Blog are winners in my book. Being a teacher and a member of The Mailbox family defines winner! Today, I’d like to congratulate both Peg and Mary for being the winners in the random drawing for the “Make a Difference to Children Giveaway.” Both Peg and Mary win the The Mailbox book or eBook of their choice. Yippee for them!
Now, let’s chat about student of the week. I’m a big fan. I think having a student of the week or a weekly Star Student is a great way to build community in the classroom. Yet I also understand that it’s one more thing to keep track of as a teacher. If you provide or plan to provide this opportunity for your students, please share your timesaving tips. Feel free to give us a quick summary of how your program works too!
PS: Next week, we could be saying “Yippee for you!” Be sure to enter our current First Friday Giveaway. All entries must be received before midnight EDT August 10. (That’s this Sunday!)
