Discover the Value of Reading the Newspaper Together

You are your child’s first and most important teacher. You play a vital role in developing your child’s attitude about learning and success in reading and thinking skills.

Children learn best when parents are interested and involved in their education. Many parents have found that looking through and reading the newspaper is an easy, enjoyable way to read, talk and think together with their children.

Seeing a parent read the newspaper every day motivates a child to want to do the same – read and learn. The newspaper is both an inexpensive and rich source of information you can share with your child.

The Parent Newspaper Guide offers suggestions on how to use the News & Observer to reinforce what's being taught in school, talk about shared interests, work together to complete newspaper-based activities that center around your community, and much more. 

Best of all, the online access to our e-edition and resources is FREE of charge to all NIE students!
