NEWSLETTERS in the CLASSROOM Editable Templates
FLASH...from unique book reports to parent communications, and from historical news to fabulous fantasy, these editable newsletter templates make writing and reporting the news an inspiring experience for the writer and the reader. Your parents will love them too.
New graphics each month are set up to encourage and prompt students to create all kinds of creative news at their skill level. Whether students are assigned a theme or topic, or whether they create an original newsletter from scratch, the results are unique and creative. See the Common Core integration below.
I have created some samples that show how you can use the newsletters for fun history assignments, book reports, student of the week recognition and more.
New thematic and seasonal graphics will keep your parents involved and engaged in your classroom activities. The ever changing graphics make reading your class news, schedules and activities an event to look forward to. STUDENT QUOTES are a big hit!
BLACK WHITE or COLOR
I have included templates for every month of the year (see below) and some extra templates for you to use all year. The full color templates can be printed in gray scale or full color. The black and white templates can be colored in by students.
PDF or POWERPOINT
Design, edit and save your templates using PDF or PowerPoint or print out the pages for hand-written student projects. It is so handy to be able to create templates that you save and use year after year. Students can create templates for fun class projects as well.
