The End of Another Great Year by: Mrs. Girbino

21 May

Fifth grade newspaper club flew by in the first semester, but many of our reporters stayed on to mentor the new fourth grade reporters in the second semester! We had a lot of interesting stories filed, with a lot of video interviews, followed by the “Opinion Page” feature being most popular with our reporters. Technology issues kept us on our toes, with updates to the WordPress platform causing some problems with the old Macs in the Art Room, but we figured out some work-arounds. Next year, we hope to do even more polished videos with some editing tutorials. Plus, “The Rube Goldberg” contest was a big hit with the school, so look for that plus several other video contests for the students of Leighton. Thank you reporters & all the staff who gave up time to be interviewed!

I like news paper club because it is fun and you get to write stories and make videos. You also get to interview teachers. We use computers to write the stories and iPads for the interviews. If you were in newspaper club, I think you would like it. I think newspaper club is really fun and I would do it next year. Picture 1

Are you a soon-to-be fourth-grader (or fith-grader)? Do you love to write? Then newspaper Club is for you! You can create and write stories about anything you want! (as long as its school appropriate!). It takes place after school on Tuesday’s from 3:30-4:30. You can write about awesome athletes, the pet set, CSI classroom, link list, opinion page, and story corner. The reason we love newspaper club is, the fact we could express our creativity in a way where everyone can see it. If you like writing, then newspaper club is the club for you!
