This week in Ms. Combs’s class, we have been learning about newspapers. Why do we read newspapers? We read them for information, entertainment, and to persuade.
We have learned a lot about newspapers in Ms. Combs’s class. We learned that they contain text features. Text features help organize, grab reader’s attention, and help readers understand the text. There are also a lot of subjects and topics in a newspaper. We learned that the main headlines go on the front page. Also, we learned about a newspaper’s characteristics by doing a newspaper scavenger hunt. We searched for the many different parts of the newspaper, such as the titles and text features. Next week, we plan to learn how to write a feature article. This has been an exciting and interesting project and we hope to participate in more of them in the future.
