Advantages of Reading a Newspaper
- Newspapers not only offer news but also provide an interactive space through games, puzzles, and stories.
- Too much screen time can affect the brains of children in adverse ways. A non-reflective surface like paper will send fewer stimuli to your brain and you’ll be able to focus. Screens, even if you’re reading only one thing, are stimulating your brain all the time, literally programming your brain to look for a new stimulus every few seconds.
Apart from reading a newspaper, your child can also develop skills in journalism, research, writing, editing and design by participating in the school’s newspaper club.
Many schools have newspaper clubs. School newspapers are a source of inspiration, creativity and fun. They showcase the talents and achievements of students, as well as provide a platform for expressing their views and opinions.
Children newspapers typically cover local and school-related news, but they may also report on national or international news. They cover various topics such as news, sports, culture, entertainment, opinions and more. They may run advertisements catered to the student body. Children newspapers are a great way to stay updated and curious.
If your school doesn’t have a newspaper, you can take the initiative to launch one.
