    During each child's turn to be the student of the week they are asked to invite a guest to read to the class. Usually it's a parent, but I've had older siblings, baby-sitters, and grandparents. I've seen some classes where the guest reader is a surprise and the teacher gives clues (provided by the reader) all week long. In the letter that I send home the week before a child becomes student of the week I explain the guest reading and give a variety of days and times-usually any morning at the start of school or afternoons right before dismissal. I simply ask the reader to let me know when he/she will come. Parents have been very responsive to this program and the kids love having someone there for them. The reader sits in my chair and the student pulls up a chair beside the reader.
