The week of January 29th through Feb 2nd was Alan’s week to be the featured student of the week in Mrs. Russo’s class!
On Monday, Alan turned in his “Emojis About Me!” poster, in which he revealed his favorite subject (tie: gym and library), animal (Lulu), hobby (learning music), holiday (Christmas), food (Chinese bean sprouts), and sport (tie: baseball and basketball). Alan also worked in stickers/mentions of some of his other favorites, including parents, cousins, swimming, Cars 3, the Hot Wheels Super Ultimate Garage, and Tribe Fest!
On Tuesday, Alan brought in one of his “Lava Crawler” Lego vehicles (pictured on the far left below) for show-and-tell.
On Wednesday, Alan brought in one of the books we bought at last fall’s book fair – Ten Baby Bears – to share with his class.
On Thursday night, Alan compiled 100 loose Lego pieces as part of a homework assignment to collect and bring in 100 items in honor of the 100th day of school (Friday)!
On Friday, Alan’s big week culminated with his parents visiting class to help him present his poster. We shared pictures and told stories about Alan. I made sure to bring pictures of Tyler, Lulu & Rosie, the Super Ultimate Garage, Alan meeting Jose Ramirez, and Alan in his LeBron jersey. Then the class presented Alan with a “star student” book that they made. It was full of nice comments about Alan, which he loved to hear.
Alan was all smiles with his arm around either Mom or Dad the whole time. When I took out my camera, some of his friends, especially Ella, wanted in the pictures too!
Afterwards I got to take Alan to lunch. He picked McDonald’s of course – our favorite hang out spot!
