This activity is great for creative writing! I remember doing a mock newspaper as a kid; I thought it was so fun to pretend like I was in that time period or in the book. Writing from the character's POV is a great way to have a mini lesson on tone and mood. This is a good opportunity to also have your students learn about "Show don't tell." They can write from the character's perspective and say a lot about the character's feelings and thoughts by what they write. This is also a nice opportunity for the students to refer back to the book to look for text evidence and support their findings. The writing style and prose will change depending on the book and topic. Enjoy!
This is a Newspaper Activity to accompany the book, Charlotte's Web by E.B. White.
Charlotte, Fern and Templeton have all decided to send in articles to their local paper!
The students will be asked to write from their perspectives! This lesson helps the students take a closer look at the characters' motivations, actions and feelings throughout the book to be able to formulate responses for them.
