I did a classroom newspaper with my 5th graders each month last year, and I'm part of a newspaper club for 4th and 5th graders this year. I've found both years that the kids are an amazing source for article ideas. By 5th grade, many of them listen to the news or see it on tv, so they know what's going on in the world. They also can tell you what's happening at school, what's needed, etc. I would definitely start with your kids to see what sections they want in the paper, then brainstorm ideas to fall into each section. Last year, I published monthly, but this year since it's a school newspaper, we are aiming for every nine weeks, maybe 2x a nine weeks if possible. Hope this helps!
