Newsletter Project – Making Language Arts Fun

Getting my boys to write is often very challenging. So I have find creative ways to inspire them to write. Today, my fourth grader, Edan, and I worked on a newsletter for his Language Arts project. 

To get my younger boys to churn out content, I let them dictate their ideas to me. Edan told me what he wanted to include in his newsletter and I jotted down his sentences. Afterwards, I asked him to go through his material to edit it.  

We used Smilebox which has a variety of templates to choose from. Here’s the finished project…enjoy!

  3. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
    It looks like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a problem with my internet browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Appreciate it
