Reflection: Lesson Planning Make a Newspaper with Informational Text Summaries - Section 2: Let's Get Excited!


Amazingly so, I needed to bring an example of a newspaper (since that was the title and what our project was).  Several of my students did not know what a newspaper was, although one student's explanation of the newspaper she used under her pumpkin when she carved it seemed to help the whole class.

Next time, I'll bring in a real newspaper with pictures. The students may never read one as an adult, but I still think it's good general knowledge.
