It’s always good to know what is going on at your school! a Ty’s News Network (or TNN), a news network made by fifth graders, provides information about books, animals, games and more. Some of the students that are responsible for filming TNN are Sofia Blagg, Ella Baker, Issac Lamison, Ty Biser, Trevor Ketrick. TNN was no easy job though. “It took weeks to film the first episode!” explained Sofia Blagg, the reporter behind the Question and Answer segment of TNN. The team had many ideas and weighed out all the pros and cons before deciding on their format. Their hard work paid off in the end. Ella said that TNN was very fun to film. The creative themes for TNN are Photo of Fame, by Trevor Ketrick, Beloved Book, by Ty Biser, Games 101, by Issac Lamison, Animals, by Paige Mathias, Q&A, by Ella Baker and Sofia Blagg, and a unique commercial, by Anna Scott. TNN started because of a Social Studies lesson. Ty Byser had the idea for TNN, but realized he needed help and started getting help from other fifth graders. The good news is the TNN crew is sure to be making more episodes of TNN for everyone to enjoy!
