Turn to your newspaper every day for resources and tips to help your family master learning from home

The 2020-21 school year will be a little different for everyone. We are looking for teachers and educational organizations to help share their best tips for making it the best it can be.

Last spring, our newspaper featured special content in the Life section to help families navigate the new dynamic of learning from home after schools were shut down to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

As the new school year begins — with many school districts starting the year online or splitting time between the classroom and home — we have resumed publishing educational content for students in grades K-12 every day in the Life section.

This special content is designed to help educate and inform students and connect parents, students and teachers with additional online resources through the News in Education program.

The News in Education program also promotes using our newspaper print and digital products for lifelong learning.

The newspaper is a tool for everyday learning. Newspaper readers stay informed about local, national and international news and current events, in addition to expanding their vocabulary and awareness of political and social issues around the world.

The newspaper also is a destination for fun and challenging games. The Life section offers puzzles and brain teasers to give children and grown-ups a mental workout. Daily features to challenge creative thinking include the crossword puzzle, the Jumble word scramble and the Sudoku number puzzle.

The Word Sleuth, running weekdays, is a word search puzzle. The Hidden Treasures hidden picture puzzle, running Tuesdays and Sundays, offers the opportunity to find hidden objects and color the picture created by Tipp City resident and author Liz Ball.
