Tuesday is "Newsday"!
I incorporate, what has come to be called, "Tuesday is Newsday" into my weekly Social Studies lessons when we discuss our community, its' members, and important events . On any Tuesday throughout the year, your child can bring in a picture from a newspaper, magazine, or even a photograph depicting a person, place of interest, or event which will be shared with the class. Please do not send in the written article from the newspaper or magazine, however, the caption under the photo is just fine. Although I find this simple activity to be an invaluable teaching tool when discussing people of interest, places and events in our own community, it also affords each child an opportunity to speak before their classmates about their own interests and how this current event relates to their everyday lives.
