Newspaper report- I didn't do my homework because...

A newspaper article including a brief reading comprehension to stimulate writing. The text is based on the first excuse contained in the picture book 'I Didn't Do My Homework Because...' by Davide Cali and Benjamin Chaud. A hoard of monkeys scupper the evening's homework session (apparently) and lead to an incredible newspaper article recounting the event from the point of view of the child. Children can choose another excuse from the book to create their own newspaper article for a class collection. Includes answer guidance and a blank newspaper outline.
