The Classroom

Need Content Ideas for June? Newsela can help.

The Newsela Team
Jun 7, 2022

Every month, in Newsela's teacher community, we publish a monthly content calendar to use in the classroom! We’ve put together resources that can be used throughout the month of June. For each weekday, you'll find something to celebrate: a national ‘holiday’, a monumental day in history, or a topic that's of high interest to students. You'll find a corresponding Newsela article for each of those days, and on some days, a shared lesson from a Newsela Community member!  You can also check out our Lesson Lab on Infusing Newsela's Daily Calendar Into Your Classroom for tips and tricks on how to build student engagement through these classroom calendars.
