Hi there parents,
This year, as an opportunity to get the students exposed to more non-fiction writing and real world topics, I’m asking them to bring in a current event article each Friday that we can share and discuss. If you could help them out with this, I would really appreciate it. The criteria for this is simple:
- The news article must have occurred sometime in the past week or so
- The article can come from a newspaper, magazine, or internet news source
- I would like to see them bring in different topics each week (in other words, I love sports, and music, but I would try to bring in other news worthy items sometimes)
Other than that, help them be creative and introduce them to some interesting, thought provoking topics! Please feel free to have discussions about them at home with your students before sending them in. I can’t wait to see them and hear all about the interesting things they have been reading!
