My Star of the Weeker

Last week, Olivia had the honor of being the Star of the Week in her kindergarten class.  We got the email about it on Friday afternoon, but let her surprise us when David picked her up after school.  She was SO excited.

Her first task was to make her very own Star of the Week poster to take into school on Monday morning.  The timing may not have been the best - David was flying out on Saturday, my parents weren't flying back in to town after being in Indiana for a couple of weeks until late Sunday night - and have you ever tried to make a project look good when you have a wild almost 3 year old running around?!  Fortunately, my brother was in town and was able to help us out some.

We spent most of Sunday afternoon putting together Olivia's poster.  We had lots of fun supplies on hand as well as lots of pictures already printed out.  We decided to divide the poster into different sections with pictures showing her friends, her family, and her favorite things.  We also decorated the poster with some punched out paper with little facts about her {favorite song, favorite food, favorite books, etc}.  I think it turned out really cute!

For the rest of the week, Olivia had to bring in something each day.  She took in some Palace Pets for Show & Share, Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse for the teacher to read out loud, her decorative fan from Hong Kong for the Mystery Bag, some popsicle and ice cream erasers for the estimation jar, and Otter Pops for her treats on Friday.  {They were already having ice cream as a treat that day, so I thought it would be better to have treats that they could have at home.  And, well, Otter Pops are one of Olivia's favorite summertime treats!}

Since Uncle Rhino was in town {and he loves a cafeteria lunch}, we went to her school to eat lunch with our special Star of the Weeker {as she referred to herself all week long}.

There was definitely some extra work involved to have a Star of the Weeker, but it was worth every minute of it!

Olivia made the best "star of the weeker" poster (with the help of her Mother) I have ever seen. I am so glad she is enjoying all the aspects of kindergarten.
