September 13 2010 Reading the sports section
My six year old grandson Kyle reading his own newspaper. When I got over to his house he told me he wanted me to help him make a newspaper. He already had all the details in his head - 4 pages, what kind of pictures, headlines and copy. We did pictures of him playing baseball, basketball and football. Then we got on the computer and he showed me which pictures he wanted, where he wanted them on each page, how big to make them, etc. Then he dictated the captions for each picture using names of real sports teams and players. He was quite precise about fonts and font sizes. On the back page we created box scores and summaries. He was thrilled with the result. And, I couldn't have had more fun.
