Sabetha fifth grade students contribute to Newspapers in Education special section
Every year, the first full week of March is nationally recognized as Newspapers in Education (NIE) Week, which was March 4-8 this year.
NIE is a joint effort between newspapers and schools to promote the use of newspapers as an educational tool in the classroom. Use of newspapers helps teachers apply real world information to the subjects in their classroom.
The Sabetha Herald has worked with Sabetha Elementary School for a number of years, creating a Newspapers in Education special section which features advertisements and articles created by students.
SES fifth-grade students are tasked with designing an advertisement for an assigned business. Students often research to learn more about the business before they design the ad.
In more recent years, the fifth-grade teachers have assigned articles to the students. Articles have been about events in the fifth-grade classroom, as well as local events. This year, SES fifth-grade teachers assigned the students pieces of local history so that they could learn more about the Sabetha community.
Enjoy the Newspapers in Education section included in this week’s Herald. You will find advertisements drawn by the fifth-grade students. You can take a step back in time as you read about Hughes Clothing Store, the Sabetha Post Office, St. Joseph and Grand Island Railroad, Sycamore Springs, Sun Springs, Sabetha Cubs baseball team, the Chautauqua, the Congregational Church and Haines Dry Goods.
