Newspapers In Education Week

 

EXTRA! EXTRA!  Read and Write All About It!

“Newspapers in Education Week”  begins on the first Monday in March.  This has been a homeschooling project week for our family for several years. We read newspapers, make recycled newspaper crafts, and write articles. In the past couple of years we have published a school  family newspaper. Below are some fantastic resources we’ve used in the past along with some new ones we’re going to be using this year.
