Product Description
How many times have your students wished they could do something different and fun in your room? Probably more often than you know.

Here's a chance for them to do something they will really enjoy while practicing several valuable skills such as critical reading, creative writing, editing, proof reading, and cooperative learning. Students will work in groups to create newspapers based on nursery rhymes. They will have so much fun being creative and clever, it will not seem like class work at all.

Nursery Rhyme Newspapers work beautifully as a review after you have taught students to write leads, telegraphic sentences, news stories, sports feature stories, personality feature stories, editorials, and headlines, etc. If you wish, you can use a nursery rhyme as the basis of each lesson.

Included in this Instructional Pac are the following:
1) Partial list of nursery rhymes
2) Sample nursery rhymes
3) Model Nursery Rhyme Newspaper
4) Instruction Sheet for Students
5) Evaluation sheets for you to use to grade the groups
6) Pulitzer Prize Certificate

This instructional pack has everything you need for a week long lesson that your students will enjoy.I used this activity with my English, creative writing, and journalism classes with much success.

This lesson is aligned with: CCSS.ELA - Literacy.CCRA.L.1 and CCSS.ELA - Literacy.CCRA.L.2

I hope you and your students enjoy using this. Here's another exercise your students will enjoy.
