This week, we used the newspaper in a variety of ways to help us explore the letter N…

The newspaper is a great way to explore letters and numbers and other language and literacy concepts.

We laminated one large page from the newspaper to search for letters and numbers…

We searched for titles and talked about some of the different parts of the newspaper such as the headline!

We looked at the graphics on the page and guessed what the story might be about…

Then we moved on to the comics. Cut apart some of the more child-friendly comic strips and you have a unique sequencing activity…

We explored newspaper in other ways too. We used our fine motor skills to tear newspaper into pieces….

And we glued newspaper pieces to the letter N!

We also did some newspaper painting and printing. I did not get a photo of our students painting with newspaper brushes but I highly recommend you click here and see the idea we used from House of Baby Piranha!

In case you missed it – check out Deborah in the news!

Perhaps you have other ideas too that can be done with newspaper…

While learning about the letter “P” we decided to explore with pizza! Pizza is an all-time favorite food for many preschoolers, and activities involving pizza
