Summer Activity #25

25. Read the newspaper.

My boys are not very fond of current events.  I wasn’t too, when I was their age.  I just found news boring or depressing.  But in this day and age, not all news is bad news.  And it’s important to be in the know and to find out what’s happening around you and even far away from you.  So, as an introduction, I asked Nikki to label the parts of a newspaper front page.  Then, we also picked 3 articles and he had to summarize the stories using who, what, when, where, and why questions.  It was fun and he enjoyed it.  Next time, we’ll be reading more articles.  Hopefully, he won’t find news boring anymore.
