Free LA Times for the classroom (for all my Southern CA peeps!)

Hello fellow bloggers! I wanted to pass on this nifty resource for those of you who live/teach in Southern California. The Los Angeles Times has a program in which they deliver newspapers (15 print copies and unlimited access to online copies) every Thursday to your classroom. You can use the newspapers for a multitude of things. In 5th grade, I feel it is so very important for my students to learn about the world around them. I want them to understand and internalize that there is so much more happening than what they may encounter within their own communities. My students use the newspapers to complete their weekly current event papers and presentations. One of my amazing teacher/blogger friends, Aris over at Sailing into Second had her 2nd graders use the newspapers to go on  a "newspaper hunt" (visit her TPT store for a free download of the activity sheet) to find their spelling words and focus words for the week. The uses for the newspapers are endless. Here is the info:
