    Thank-you so much to all of you who gave me ideas for
    another name for my ocean-themed "star of the week". I
    just came up with another idea that I would like feedback
    on as I decide what name to use!

    What about "Island Boy" or "Island Girl" of the week?

    When the new "Island Girl" is announced, I could take a
    picture of her with a hula skirt and a lay (on over her
    clothes, of course). For the "Island Boy" I could get a
    Hawaiian-style button up shirt for him to wear for the
    picture. I could decorate the bulletin board with hawaiian-
    themed pictures and palm trees around the pocket chart
    that the child would use to display pictures of
    him/herself. The picture with the child in the costume
    could go at the top next to the words "Island Girl/Boy of
    the Week". What do you think? I am also thinking about
    trying to find a cheap blow-up palm tree to place by the
    computer center, which will probably be "Internet Island".
    I could take the picture of the child next to the palm
    tree.

    Any further ideas and opinions on this would be great! You
    guys are wonderful!

    What a fun idea! You said that the girls will be wearing leis. I think the boys should also wear leis! You are very creative and your kids are going to love being the student of the week. If you can get a blow up palm tree like you suggested, that will be perfect.

    I know my own boys (6 & 8 year olds) would love the idea and they would want to keep the lei. You might want to stock up on some leis from Oriental Trading Co, so you can give one to each child as it is their turn.

    I bet you could find the blow up palm tree at Oriental Trading also.

    I like that idea! I second the notion about ordering leis from Oriental Trading Company; you can buy packs of 50 or something for a reasonable price. And I think the boys should wear leis too; I'm pretty sure in Hawaii that both boys and girls wear leis (although they are different kinds).

    I bet the boys would like to wear the hula skirt too!
