WRITING
Creating a Class Newspaper

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: April 24, 2001

A monthly class newspaper is a perfect way to communicate with parents as well as give your students the chance to show off their writing and illustrating skills! The possibilities with a newspaper are endless, but here are 10 ideas that have been a success for our classes:

1 - Have a class-created name for your paper. Brainstorm ideas and take a class vote. Have a child or two write about this process of coming up with your newspaper name.

2 - Headlines and articles of events that have occurred in your room, as well as the ones coming up in the future. Perhaps the class learned long division in a week! Now that's something to write about!

3 - Weather reports

4 - Spotlights on the birthday children that month

5 - Editorials

6 - Interview a VIP at your school - the principal, janitor, librarian, or lunchroom worker are just a few of your many choices!

7 - School and PTA news

8 - Lost and found

9 - Reports on a recent class meeting

10 - A note from the teacher
