Question of the Day: SSAT Elementary Level Reading

"Soccer" by Daniel Morrison (2014)

Soccer is considered by some Americans to be a European and Latin American sport. For numerous reasons, the sport has struggled to take hold professionally in the United States, but there is growing participation in the sport at the youth level. This can probably be attributed to the relative dangers faced by those playing soccer and those playing America’s traditional favorite youth sport—American football.

Young children who play American football are at high risk of several catastrophic injuries such as concussions, fractures and spinal damage. The universal concern among parents to protect the health of their children has lead many to encourage their child to take up soccer as opposed to American football. If this trend continues, which it almost certainly will as our society becomes more aware of the degree of damage done by repeated collisions in American football, it will not be long before the popularity of soccer spreads upwards to the professional level.

Which of these themes or ideas is not supported by the passage?

Most parents encourage their child to play a particular sport based on the health risks involved.

Parents are worried about the health and safety of their children.

The popularity of a game at the professional level is related to its popularity at the youth level.

It may be more expensive to play American football than to play soccer.

Some Americans view soccer as less traditionally American than American football.

If you have any interest in sending your elementary learner to a private school, he or she will likely need to take the Secondary School Admission Test. For elementary learners, this test is offered for students at the third and fourth grade level. The Elementary Level SSAT covers three main components: reading, verbal, and quantitative. It is used to assess a student’s overall understanding of the core elementary courses, and it often required as part of the admissions procedure. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools offer a range of free resources on their website which are designed to help your elementary learner prepare for the Elementary Level SSAT and get the most out of his or her SSAT review.


One important resource made available to your learner on the Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools website is the Question of the Day. Here, your elementary learner will be given a random question related to the material covered in the SSAT Elementary Level Reading section. The daily question is randomly chosen from a number of topics that are covered by the Elementary Level SSAT in Reading, such as poetry, prose, nonfiction, and fiction. By reviewing the Question of the Day each day, you are helping your learner develop excellent study habits while he or she reviews important information. This is a perfect way to assist your learner in efficiently getting the SSAT Elementary Level Reading practice he or she needs.

Not only is the Question of the Day a great way to get the Elementary Level SSAT Reading help your elementary learner needs, but he or she can also use it as a way to review important material. After solving the Question of the Day, your learner will be taken to a page where he or she is given an explanation behind the correct answer. These explanations help simplify difficult material by demonstrating how to properly solve the problem, meaning that your learner can become better equipped to learn from his or her mistakes. By adding the Question of the Day to your elementary learner’s daily SSAT Elementary Level Reading review, you can help your learner broaden his or her knowledge on the subject.

Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools offer you a number of resources that give your learner opportunities to improve his or her SSAT Elementary Level Reading test preparation. By using the Question of the Day alongside the comprehensive SSAT Reading Flashcards and the in-depth exploration provided through Learn by Concept, your elementary learner has the chance to develop a balanced study plan that best fits his or her needs. After you feel that your learner has reviewed adequately, have him or her take one of the SSAT Elementary Level Reading Practice Tests to evaluate his or her knowledge on the subject.

The Question of the Day, along with the rest of Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools, is a great addition to any child’s Elementary Level SSAT Reading study guide. The fact that each question is randomly chosen means that your learner will need to develop an overall knowledge of the SSAT Elementary Level Reading material in order to successfully answer each question. By consistently using the Question of the Day, you are helping your elementary learner to keep important material at the forefront of his or her mind.
