Your Child and Your Daily Newspaper: A Handbook for Parents.
Columbia Newspapers, Inc. SC.; South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
This booklet gives parents ideas they can use to acquaint their children with the daily newspaper. A total of 63 activities are briefly described, newspaper terminology is defined, and key steps in producing the daily newspaper are outlined. Most of the activities can be done at any time or any place, with just a parent, one or more children, and a daily newspaper. The activities are intended for use with most children of 3 through 8 years of age, although younger and older children may benefit from the activities. Statements in bold face offer directions for activities that are organized beneath the bold face headings. Parents are directed to select activities at which their children can experience success. The booklet also includes brief histories of two South Carolinian newspapers, The State and The Columbia Record, and an explanation of South Carolina's kindergarten objectives. (RH)
