Happy Holidays from Kid Scoop and your Local Newspaper

Imagine a gift that lasts the whole year. It helps your children learn the skills of reading, writing, STEM and arithmetic. Where can you find this special gift? Just open up your local newspaper.

Holiday Shopping

Have your students choose a character from a book you’re studying. Let them each imagine that they are this character who then goes on a holiday shopping spree with the newspaper. For an extra challenge, give students a budget to work within.


After your students have finished reading the newspaper, have them cut out squares of paper. Fold each square over twice and cut out patterns to make snowflakes. Now decorate your classroom with the class snowflakes.
