Students in Grade 2 recently created an original newspaper. The newspaper features eclectic offerings including the following sections: Book Reviews, Opinions, Travel, and Education.
Below is the text of an opinion piece by Sammie entitled, Saving Our Planet and Animals.
Dear My Saver,
Animals around the world have been having their habitats cut down or being destroyed. And to help i think we can not use plastic, stop cutting down trees, and try being less wasteful and compost. Just imagine one of your favorite animals being extinct! And what if many animals at once go extinct! Climate change is making our planet too hot! Our planet has not been treated properly and I think that there is a way that us people can help save our planet. You can help too! Help by using less plastic! Soon there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Now you go out and get a reusable water bottle and use less plastic!!
When asked about writing a newspaper, one student shared:
It feels good and exciting because I get to share my writing with everyone in the world and they get to learn about why I love writing.
