Teachers

It’s a month filled with celebrations!

During February we celebrate many events including the birthdays of two presidents, Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day. Did you know February is also Black History Month, Library Lover’s Month, Dental Health Month, Healthy Heart Month and National Snack Month? Use the newspaper in your classroom to help your students be aware of events in your community and at the same time, reinforce basic academic skills.

Library Lovers

Have each student select his or her favorite book and write a book review saying why this is their choice.

Snack Month

Using the ad section of the newspaper, have each student select his or her favorite snack. Take a survey to see which snack is the most popular among your students. Have students make a chart or graph illustrating their findings. What percentage of the snacks they chose are healthy?
