This is a project designed to teach students emotional literacy (kindness, compassion, empathy and respect) along with writing, editing, design and collaboration skills by creating and sharing a newspaper focused on dogs. The first edition of the newspaper, known as The Des Moines Doggy Daily, is currently being created by the 75 4th graders in Jennifer Houlette, Kendra Carlson and Julie Campbell’s classes in Iowa. The newspaper is being created as we read Lead With Your Heart, which lays the foundation for the emotional skills we are encouraging the students to practice.
The Des Moines Doggy Daily in the News!
