Focus on Communities
Make your students feel grown-up with these classroom newspapers!
Each edition includes an article with a social studies focus on communities. After reading the article, students use ELA comprehension skills to answer text-dependent questions. The rest of the newspaper includes a mixture of phonics, vocabulary, language arts, place value, and math computation skill review.
One edition may be sufficient for a week's worth of morning work, and there are thirteen editions in this file.
All of the activities are based on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade skills.
