Product Description
News develops every day. The beauty of the newspaper in the classroom is it comes to your door fresh and filled with the latest news and information. Newspapers are a great resource for teaching concepts and strategies of reading and writing. They provide real-life and practical experiences that students can utilize in their reading and writing experiences in or out of the classroom.
Newspapers are cheap, plentiful, and readily available. They are a motivating tool because students find the topics interesting and relevant to their lives. These connections inspire students to become researchers and readers. I love the fact that they are so versatile and can be used for individual or cooperative activities.

This resource has been designed for flexible use. I have used the information in the following ways:
• As a unit of study on the newspaper*
• As task cards for a literacy station
• As cooperative learning projects for small group reading
• As wrap up lessons for a reading or writing strategy
* As an introductory lesson for a reading or writing strategy
• As review activities before a test
• As enrichment or remedial activities for students
• As a welcome alternative to homework worksheets
• As seatwork for times you are working with small groups
