Something that we have done with the newspaper is article analysis. It is really cool, because we got to read things about our town, and the things that are going on. We also got to do a vocabulary search that allows us to go through the newspaper and find cool words we've never seen.
I am writing to thank you for spending your money to buy my class newspapers. My favorite thing I did with the newspaper was how we searched for nouns, verbs and adjectives. We looked at the weather forecast and some entertaining stories.
I also get to know about stuff that is going on in Washington, like if there is a new building being built, when the fair is coming, or if something big happens in sports. The newspaper lets me know.
As we grow older, we also grow more curious about what is going on around us. Most would go to the TV and turn on the news. Why not read instead?
Thanks for everything you write in your newspaper. Lily's Story we read all of those. We read the First Ladies stories. We also used it for our newspaper unit. You guys just keep up what you are doing with the newspaper.
I am so happy. The newspaper tells what is going on in the world. It shows what is coming soon. It shows the cute pictures of nature.
I would like to thank you for donating newspapers to Washington High School. We used the newspapers for a lot of things like summarizing and finding verbs and nouns. I liked reading the newspaper to see what was going on in our community. Another reason I liked reading the Missourian was because it was more fun than reading books. The newspaper has a lot of cool articles to read about each week!
My class and I want to THANK YOU for the opportunity to use your newspapers this year. We enjoy reading the paper and using it for various projects and assignments throughout the year. It is good to be "in the know."
Thanks for all you do to make NIE so easy to do -- and so rewarding for us teachers and for our students.
We are on our third Famous Missouri Journalist and my ELL High School students are learning so much. I have several students who have been in the United States one year or less and they have greatly benefited from these selections.
Thank you for everything you do. We use the newspaper a lot. We read the first lady story every day. The newspaper is awesome.
Thank you for sponsoring our school and for supporting our educational needs through the gift of free newspapers. You have helped us out so much! It was great using the newspapers when learning concepts in English class as well as reading about what is going on in our town.
Thank you for letting us expand our education by giving us the newspapers. We are thankful to have them. We use many of them for special projects. We also learned a lot about our community!
Thank you for your donation of the newspaper this school year. We used your donations for many activities in our English class. We used the newspaper to keep up to date on current events and to learn and review grammar and the parts of speech. It also helped us learn how to identify the main idea. Your donation was helpful in many ways.
Thank you for supplying our fourth grade class with newspapers this school year. I loved reading the weekly chapters of "Lily's Story." I was glad to read it while I could not afford the book. I never really knew how to fold a newspaper, and how to read and comprehend it. Thanks to you, now I know how to read and fold a newspaper.

Everything around us came from an ancient swirling disk of dust. Our sun, our planet, and the planets of our solar system all formed from the remnants of this disk. Our mountains, our animals, and even us humans came from the sun that formed from this disk. Nobody on Earth has ever handled anything that came from anywhere else.

On March 17th, 2013, a meteor the size of a small boulder traveling over 70 times the speed of a bullet crashed into the surface of the Moon. It created an explosion so bright that it could be seen from Earth—without a telescope! Scientists think that the force of the explosion was the same as about 5 tons of dynamite going off all at once.

Go outside when the Moon is full. Look up and imagine you see two Moons, instead of one. Some scientists think that long ago Earth may have had two Moons.

You may have seen colorful, eye-popping space images in books or on NASA websites. There are beautiful spiral galaxies that shine in pinks and blues; glowing green and yellow clouds with great white-tipped columns; or the radiant leftovers of exploded stars that may look like an eye or a spider.
