The second special activity on Friday afternoons is star time. Star time is a reward for students who have done a great job during the week. To qualify for star time in a given week, students must have:
- gotten their planner signed every night
- completed and handed in all homework assignments on time
- followed all classroom rules
During star time, students may play an educational game, do a puzzle or use math manipulatives. These activities provide students with opportunities to build logical thinking (e.g. chess, puzzles), vocabulary (e.g. Scrabble, Boggle, Outburst), deductive reasoning (Guess Who?, Head Bandz), and math skills (e.g. Monopoly. Yahtzee), as well as have fun! Students who do not qualify for star time use the period to catch up on incomplete assignments.
