    Hi Everyone!
    I'm currently a teacher who covers for teachers so they can have mtgs and/or provide classroom support. I have taught pre-k spec ed, 2nd grade, and K before.

    Today I saw a teacher with a template for a newsletter that was on worksheet. It was great. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to ask the teacher where she got it. It looked like she may have gotten it from Mailbox Magazine, but I'm not positive. I have seen it used before. Both teachers had wrote the newsletter.

    Does anyone have any great templates for newsletters that are quick and easy to make? I use to make one, but it was very very time consuming as I did it on microsoft word with bullets, etc.

    Thanks everyone who is willing and able to share you're ideas with me. I appreciate it greatly! :)

    There is a great one from Microsoft Online for Word. That is the only one I use anymore.

    I made a template on my own using Word. Each week I just fill in the areas. Quick, simple and easy to do. I like this better than a pre-made ones because I tailored it to fit my needs.

    Microsoft Publisher has great newsletter template. There are a wide variety and some geared directly towards education. Most schools have the microsoft package and publisher is often included. Check it out - it's very user friendly.

    I subscribe to Mailbox Magazine. With a subscription, you get Mailbox On-Line. There are worksheets and extenders including a monthly calendar template and monthly newsletter templates. Each month has seasonal graphics. There is a newsletter template with headings and one where you can make your own. They are so simple! There are also planning pages and note pages.

    When I taught 4th my students did the newsletter using microsoft word. They wrote the article for a subject & then chose a shape in word art & typed it. Then the editors for that month decorated it with stickers & stamps. I also had my own section that I typed. (It wasn't always the prettiest (or classiest looking) newsletter, but the kids liked it & it allowed them to practice grammar & spelling. :)
