favorite lessons

A copy of Kate Shelley and the Midnight Express comes as a nonfiction companion book with the 4th grade Trophies reading series. Its the true story of a young girl who rescued some drowning men and then went on to stop a train from crashing through a bridge. Its an easy read, though very suspenseful (high level grade 3).My friend Nancy the awesome sent me the following lesson: Read the story together (I have gotten a class set from the Used Book Superstore) and have the children write a newspaper article using a who, what, when, where, why template. You can see from my picture what the final product looks like. I have them add some pictures and a catchy title for their article. Christine
