Celebrity in the Spotlight~~~Beginning in December~~Each student will have the chance to be our “Celebrity in the Spotlight.” We are excited and looking forward to learning more about you, listening to you read, and meeting your special guest. Below you will find a schedule of what your week will be like and what you need to prepare for it.The first thing you need to do is choose a guest reader whom you would like to visit our classroom. Your guest reader may be any adult you choose (mom, dad, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or special friend). Siblings in the school are not allowed to be guest readers, due to their classroom schedules. Please ask you guest to choose a day (Monday through Friday) and time that is convenient for him or her to come to school. Please look at the schedule on the reverse side so the time doesn’t interfere with our specials. Click here to see a list of the times that are good for us. Let your guest reader know that he or she should bring a book to read to the class and will have approximately 20 minutes to spend in our classroom. Once you have selected your guest reader, fill out the form below and return to me as soon as possible.
