"My students are so excited to wear their brag bands home and show off their excellence to their parents. Thanks!"


"These look fantastic in the learners' books, Thank you!"


"It is hard to keep my students on track but since they love to talk I try to use group learning as often as I can. These bands helped eliminate the constant need for teacher direction. Students had an easy way to see what their responsibility was and how they contributed to the group. Great resource! Thank you."

The Star Student Story Packet is a ton of fun and is super simple to implement: 


  • Begin by starting the story with a one page story you have begun. It can be about anything you like. But leave it open-ended. 
  • Place the cover, your first page, and one additional blank lined page into a report cover folder with brads. 
  • Then, read the first page to the class and pass it along to the next star student. 
  • He or she gets a week to add on to your story on the blank page in the booklet. 
  • On the day due, you take the folder and read again your page, then pass along to the star student to read his or her page. 
  • This pattern continues each week. Several weeks in, you will have a lineup in the front of the classroom in order ready to read their page in the classroom novel. Note: It will take some time to read it through the longer it gets, but the students LOVE being a part of the story and hearing how it evolves. 
  • After everyone in the class has had a page added to the story, you can write the conclusion page to wrap up the writing. 
  • As a special touch, I always typed up each child’s page at the end of the school year and included the author’s name on the page (reasoning is because the handwriting wasn’t always easy for all to read). Then I printed it out on plain white paper and had the child use markers to add a border around the edges and add their signature to the page. 
  • Last – I printed color copies of the “book” and used as an end of the school year gift along with a slideshow of classroom photos. 

Parents, administrators, and students loved it and it cost me nothing to give those special mementos of the school year.

Packet includes 24 pages, 10 customizable covers for your to personalize, and is perfect for grades 2 and up!
