Daily Post does not meet We review what we learned yesterday about writing newspaper articles using our anchor chart.
Who remembers what kinds of facts does a newspaper article contain? What questions does it answer? What are the special features? I see the children looking at the chart to find the answers. That is exactly what I wanted to happen. Anchor charts are hung up in the room with that intent. I was very pleased to see that they made that connection.
I have the children start at the top of the paper. Let's begin your article by writing a headline at the top. Think about what you might want to use for a headline and write it at the top. Headlines should tell the most important part of the story.
So think about what the most important thing is and write it down. Remember that each word in the headline should begin with a capital letter.

I created the montage of Rodia and the towers since I knew that the children probably wanted to have a visual when they were drawing.
It always helps spark ideas in reluctant artists. When you are finished, you can begin writing your actual newspaper article. Make sure to look at your planning paper to make sure you include all of the necessary details.
Many times reporters begin with telling who and what the story is about, but sometimes they start other ways. Think about how you would like to start your story.
I like to give children an idea how to start but leave the door open for the creative, more advanced students to do a little more or start with a little twist. You should make each of your ideas into complete sentences.
Of course make sure to begin each sentence begins with a capital and end each statement with a period.
