Welcome Back to School

Use the newspaper for homework assignments and get the whole family reading together!

Reading Clues

Have your students read through a news article and black out every fifth word in the story. Can they still understand what is being said? Have partners mark a different article and then trade articles. After reading each other’s stories, compare how much each one understood.

Talking Pictures

Let your students cut out pictures from the newspaper. Paste the pictures on paper and write words for people, animals, or things to say. Draw “talking bubbles” around the words to create picture comics.
