The Weekly Kid Scoop Page
Kid Scoop is a weekly, in-paper feature for children from kindergarten to eighth grade. Hands-on activities and lively illustrations draw in students and lead them to the informative text. They have fun and they learn at the same time. Each week the Kid Scoop page will capture their imaginations and encourage them to pick up the newspaper. Children are motivated to read by this time-tested, award-winning formula.
- More than 350 newspapers include Kid Scoop products in their newspapers.
- Children who read the newspaper have been shown to score higher on reading tests.
- Here's a great way to reach future readers and get them enjoying the newspaper habit.
- Links to our Kid Scoop website for addition material for Kids, Parents and Teachers.
The content and activities are labeled with Standards Links. These are the National Standards teachers are required to include in their lessons.
“Many teachers need to write in their plan books how the lessons they teach address their state standards. The Kid Scoop Skill Labels are just what my teachers have been looking for.” — NIE Program Director

If you publish the local version of Kid Scoop, your local children will submit stories for the Weekly Writing Corner column. You must select stories and format this column for publication each week.
