News-O-Matic is a daily news app for kids to use to catch up on current events.
I have created a set of activities to HOLD students accountable for their reading. One of the problems I found we I first started using this app was not being able to tell if students were actually reading the article or watching the videos. This packet includes activities that could be used with any NEWS-O-MATIC article.
This set includes:
Fact/Opinion Sheet about This Day in History,
Mystery Word Game Grid,
(4) Thinking outside the box pages, (2) Reporter Notes, (7) four part activity pages, (1) Tweet page, 4, Venn diagrams, and three PIC COLLAGE activities.
My students love sitting with an empty coffee mug and discussing the current events in my classroom.
