Students in Melissa Levonick’s fifth-grade class had an amazing opportunity to work with Newsday’s Kidsday. Editor Pat Mullooly visited the class three times to discuss article ideas with the students, and encouraged their joke writing and creative illustrations for the paper.

The students went on numerous adventures to New York City where they interviewed celebrities including the Beach Boys’ Mike Love and the people who voice Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They also visited The Museum of Illusions to interview the owner/creator. Their hard work was featured in several Kidsday articles in the fall and during the week of January 12.

“All the students agree that this was an incredible experience,” Ms. Levonick said. See their journalistic masterpieces here!
