Thanks to Carl Lazous and the CNN student news, the children now:
Have become aware of every day current events!
Act as journalists, taking notes from the newscasts.
Enjoy reporting back for the follow-up classroom discussions!

After watching CNN Student News, my students and I decided that it would be great to have a
West Point Weekly News
So I created a script template in which they used to find and complete information about West Point: teacher feature, student feature, upcoming events, animal facts, etc. They would practice a few times and then we would record.

and I would be video-taping them. The cool part was that with Flip-share, I could then create a movie and send it off to parents!!! The response from parents was great! You know many parents would still follow their kids to school if they could. So this allowed them to be there, but not!
The kids were given a rubric: AnthonyCreate a poster about their book.Use two props. Cover the basic narrative elements: author, genre, character, setting, plot. Be creative!
Here is an example! Enjoy!
