Newspapers in Education

Parents: Newspapers are likely to be used in your children’s classroom sometime this month, especially during the week of March 5 through 9, which is officially Newspapers in Education week. This program is designed to introduce children to newspapers and to turn them into future readers. If you are a newspaper reader, your children are likely to follow in your footsteps. Here are a few things you can do to build the newspaper reading habit using this publication and your local paper:

For Young Children

  • Read a family-oriented comic strip to your children every day.
  • Introduce your children to the special pages in the newspaper and this publication that have activities designed specifically for children.
  • For gift-giving occasions, have the children study ads for gift ideas within a certain price range.
  • On shopping days, let your children select one acceptable food item from the grocery store ads that you will purchase for them.

For Older Children

  • Cut intriguing cartoons from the newspaper and put them on a bulletin board or the refrigerator for everyone in the family to enjoy. Encourage your children to do the same thing. It will have them investigating the contents of different sections of the newspaper.
  • Introduce computer fans to the online version of your local paper or this publication.
  • Follow newspaper stories of headline events in the Middle East on a map of the area. This will give your children an edge in their social studies classes.
  • Have your children determine the ratings of motion pictures they wish to see by reading movie ads.
