School districts and states now require tests to measure students? reading ability each year or at key grade levels. This special supplement will help students get ready for those tests, and to improve reading comprehension every day. It contains newspaper-style stories on topics kids enjoy, questions based on those stories, vocabulary words, book lists and newspaper activities. This tab could easily be broken up and run as an in-paper series.

Sample Newspaper Activity
Look through the ads and headlines in the newspaper and cut out words that show anger or triggers for anger. Paste them in the center of a sheet of construction paper. Then look through the paper again and cut out words that seem friendly or cooperative. Paste them in a circle around your anger words. You have contained anger on your paper the way you can contain anger in your life.

Sponsor Suggestion
Literacy groups, libraries, businesses or sports teams with literacy goals, PTAs or neighborhood organizations, state education departments, student testing agencies, fraternal or community groups, Rotary or Jaycees.
