A proud Lower Elementary student journalist stopped us on the playground the day the first edition of the Bergamo Montessori News was published, wanted to make sure we had seen it, AND requested that we announce the next publication date. We are happy to oblige!
First, a bit of background on the project from Patty, the Lower Elementary guide:
“… Another club that has started is a school newspaper. I brought our local Davis Enterprise to school to show them what a small newspaper publication looks like and what it includes. Many children were interested in becoming reporters and so far we have articles on sports, Tinsel and Rain, and an interview with Gail. We have even had some Upper Elementary children interested in submitting some articles! This is a great way for the children to learn about writing, editing (they end up writing each article at least three times!), layout, and production. I hope that we have enough articles to get our first publication out within the next two weeks!”
Word is the next edition will come out in January. Keep your eyes peeled! There are a limited number of copies available, but we’re certain you’ll be able to find another proud young journalist willing to share theirs with you…
We love the captures (below) of the Upper Elementary students enjoying the paper around campus!:
