Reading Comprehension Worksheets & Printables

After learning how to read, the path to literacy continues with being able to understand and articulate what it is we read. Developing this vital skill is the primary focus of our reading comprehension worksheets. In addition to compelling fiction stories, including some popular children’s fables, students of all ages will find reading comprehension worksheets that reinforce a slew of literary skills, including identifying themes, story structure, cause and effect, and the difference between similes and metaphors (and how to use them).

Reading Comprehension Worksheets to Foster Enthusiastic and Fluent Readers

There’s nothing more enjoyable than to see a kid race to a bookshelf, grab a book and sit down and read it from cover to cover. But there’s so much more that goes into reading proficiency than just the act of reading itself. For example, expanding vocabulary and understanding all the various literary techniques are critical components to developing a well-rounded reader.

Our reading comprehension worksheets guide young students along the years-long journey to becoming competent and confident readers (and, by extension, writers). Starting with childhood fairytales and continuing all the way to lengthy nonfiction texts that are required reading for older students, students in all grade levels will find our reading comprehension worksheets to be as enjoyable as they are helpful. Additionally, as they move from grade to grade, students can access worksheets that strengthen such concepts as story sequencing, character development, inferencing, point of view, and comparing and contrasting.

Reading proficiency varies from child to child, so be sure to select worksheets that align with each student’s reading level. Challenge them, but don’t overwhelm them.
