About This Product

This newspaper template is perfect to help your students master the art of expository writing. Students can write a rough draft in their journals, practice proofreading, and create their good copy on the blackline master/graphic organizer. With a bit of decoration, a class set of these could make a beautiful and informative bulletin board or class book!

How to Use:

There are many ways to use this product! Students could write a real article about something happening around their school. They could interview a member of the school community or write about a special event. Conversely, students could write creative articles about imagined events: aliens landing on earth, the dinosaurs returning, or a friend of theirs winning the lottery. Or, have students write an article to summarize a part of the novel you are reading in class: "Brian Returns!" for Hatchet or "Jonas and Gabriel Disappear!" for The Giver.

Grades to Use With: Students from grades 1-5 could use this organizer. It can support these standards in grades 2 and 3:


Write informative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section.


With guidance and support from adults and peers, focus on a topic and strengthen writing as needed by revising and editing.


Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., read a number of books on a single topic to produce a report; record science observations).


Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.


With guidance and support from adults, produce writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task and purpose.


Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences.
