PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

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!

Matilda is one of Roald Dahl's most popular books and it is easy to see why! The reader follows along with a small child who is incredibly smart and resourceful. With the help of some friends and a caring teacher, Matilda finds a way to get what she wants and deserves!

This creative writing newspaper has the students write in the point of views of:
1. The Trenchbull- Why I am the Greatest at Everything!
2. Matilda- What Life is like living with Ms. Honey and my plans for the future!
3. Ms. Honey- The Lessons I have Learned from Matilda
4. The Wormwood parents- How to raise Children (A Satirical piece)
5. Magnus Honey- The Truth behind my Mysterious Death
6. Write about the wildest prank you can think of for a chance to win a spot in the next installment of Matilda Times!
