Each year in school my kids have a week that they are spotlighted. I think this is pretty common. I think it is a fun way for the kids to get to know each other.
A couple weeks ago my daughter came home on a Friday and reminded me that she was the student of the week for the next week. For her class, the kids have a “then” and “now” paper to put pictures on. I decided to put together a quick collage in Photoshop. I think it turned out cute!
Student Spotlight Collage
For the “now” collage we picked our favorite pictures from the last year, added some Polaroid borders, and created a simple purple background (one of her favorite colors) and added a couple flower stamps for embellishment. We tried to pick a variety of pictures from some of her favorite activities and experiences.
For the “then” collage, we picked some of her favorite pictures from the first few years of her life. We stayed consistent with the layout and style by adding some Polaroid borders, and created a simple pink background (her other favorite color) and added a couple flower stamps for embellishment. She wanted the collages to be all about her so we didn’t include any pictures of the rest of the family.
Finally, we created another page that matched the design of the collages with the student spotlight questions.
We used photo paper and printed them on my nifty new printer.
Does your child’s school do student spotlights?
Wow! I was a teacher, and I never saw anything this sophisticated for my students’ spotlights! Thanks for sharing at oopsey daisy!
I feel more comfortable using Photoshop to help put together projects for my kids than using scissors and glue :). Have a great day!
