Creating a classroom newspaper is an excellent way
• To build classroom community.
• To increase and enhance parent communication and rapport.
. To increase language arts, reading and writing skills
If you wish your students to become more accountable, resourceful, yet respectful, we must allow them opportunities to cultivate these traits. In this project, students will work collaboratively to create and produce a monthly, class newspaper that will be distributed to parents, administrators and others. This activity will not only reinforce leadership skills but it will also enhance academic concepts taught daily in your classroom. As a result, students will develop skills and concepts in many authentic ways.
