Make learning fun by creating a family newspaper. Scholastic has a free PDF you can print out to gather your news and interview family members!
They also suggest you look through a real newspaper first with your kids so they can understand what the function of news is and what kinds of stories are published. They suggest writing about "sports, hobbies, family get-togethers, visitors, trips, books, birthdays, or even embarrassing or funny moments! "
Make copies of your "newspaper" and send it or email it to relatives. This is a great project for a long summer day and a great way to incorporate learning in the home!
