It's another Linky Party! Amanda from "Teaching Maddeness" is having a Linky Party to showcase some of our favorite classroom projects. Here is the link to join in on the fun!
Here is one of my classroom projects that I am most looking forward to! I am always looking for ways to record what we have learned in an interesting way so that the kids will WANT to go back and read through it. So this year, we will be having a Pony Express. As we are having a western theme, which I talked about here, we are going to create a weekly newspaper! Throughout the week, my kids will have an opportunity to work on writing articles using information they are learning that week. They will then follow the writing process to prepare it for "publishing" on Friday.
At the end of the week, the kids will have an opportunity to place their article onto a chart that looks like this:
Each Monday, we will flip the chart for the next "newspaper" layout. At the end of the year, we will have a year's worth of review! We can reread the newspaper and look at how we have learned and grown throughout the year! This could be integrated into any homeschool or classroom! If I had a full size class, I thought about including newspaper reporters in my classroom helper lists. Those who have the jobs could create articles for the end of the week! Do you have any suggestions? Comment below!
