Think of things your child could have fun finding in your local newspaper. For example:
- A picture of a favorite athlete or movie star.
- Three sentences that have “said,” “first,” or some school vocabulary word in them.
- The temperature in the city where a relative lives.
- The score of a particular team.
- The colors “red,” “white,” and “blue.”
- A map of a country making news.
- A family movie that is playing in a nearby theater and the times it’s playing.
- A “statement of fact.”
- Someone’s “opinion.”
Give your child a short list of these things and challenge him to “See how many you can find!” Let him circle the treasures he discovers, then check them off his list.
