Question of the Day: SSAT Elementary Level Reading

Adapted from "The Lion’s Share" in The Fables of Aesop by Aesop (trans. Jacobs 1902)

The Lion once went hunting with the Fox, the Jackal, and the Wolf. They hunted and they hunted till at last they surprised a Stag, and soon took its life. Then came the question of how the spoil should be divided. "Quarter me this Stag," roared the Lion; so the other animals skinned it and cut it into four parts. Then the Lion took his stand in front of the carcass and pronounced judgment: "The first quarter is for me in my capacity as King of Beasts; the second is mine as arbiter; another share comes to me for my part in the chase; and as for the fourth quarter, well, as for that, I should like to see which of you will dare to lay a paw upon it." "Humph," grumbled the Fox as he walked away with his tail between his legs; but he spoke in a low growl. “You may share the labors of the great, but you will not share the spoil."

Who is referred to as “King of Beasts"?

The Wolf

The Fox

The Lion

The Stag

The Jackal 

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.
