Newspaper Activities



These worksheets go together. One is a diagram with facts which could be used as an introduction. The other is the diagram with a wordbank and clues so students can fill in the diagram on their own as an assessment.

A worksheet to help write a summary of a newspaper article using who, what, where, when and picture symbol cues.

Reading Comprehension





Both of these files are for use with any reading material. The student chooses a topic, writes questions about the topic, then reads or completes an activity about the topic, and uses the New Facts worksheet to journal what they learned. I have electronic versions of these created in Office 2007. Email me if you would like those. I am also working on a version for use in IntelliTools Classroom Suite (version 4).
