Reflection: Relevance Text Structures: Final draft – Day 2 - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


The students and I want their covers to look as realistic to the real Scholastic News as possible so rather than them draw a picture on the cover, we use our computer lab time to search for and print photographs that represent their main topic. These ended up looking terrific and we got so many positive comments when we displayed them in the hallway. Also, another section that is fun for the students is called Kid’s Corner. The students can get creative with this and make something interesting for their audience, which could be a maze, word search, crossword puzzle, hidden pictures, comic, or any other ideas they can come up with.
