In The News

TICKLE MONKEY<br /> <br /> This monkey must never get bored. That’s because he has learned how to tickle his own feet!<br /> <br /> Natalia Paklina took photos of the monkey last summer. She was on vacation on the island of Bali in Southeast Asia.“At first, I thought he was scratching,” she says. But then she noticed that he kept doing the same thing over and over. Each time, he burst out giggling. Ha!<br /> <br /> NICKI’S CALLING YOU<br /> <br /> It’s 7 a.m. Your cell phone rings.<br /> <br /> “Good morning!” says a familiar voice. “This is Nicki Minaj, reminding you how important it is to get to school on time—every day.” <br /> <br /> Teens can sign up to receive wake-up calls like this at getschooled.com. Each morning, you’ll hear from a star like Ciara, Wiz Khalifa, or Trey Songz. And you just might get up in time to catch your school bus!<br /> <br /> MAIN IDEA<br /> <br /> Read the sentences below about “Nicki’s Calling You.” Underline the main idea.<br /> <br /> Circle the supporting detail.<br /> <br /> Check the opinion.<br /> <br /> 1. Ciara recorded one of the wake-up calls.<br /> <br /> 2. Teens can sign up for wake-up calls from stars.<br /> <br /> 3. Getting up at 7 a.m. is way too hard.<br /> <br /> DOLPHIN BOAT<br /> <br /> Would you like to shoot through the waves like a dolphin? The Seabreacher makes it possible. This new boat can dive underwater, roll sideways, or leap 18 feet into the air.<br /> <br /> Dan Piazza works for the company that makes the boat. “It’s like an airplane,” he says, “but you get the thrill of flying underwater.”
