Fourth Grade Reading Comprehension Worksheets & Printables

Reading gets a lot more challenging in fourth grade, thanks to lengthier, more complex texts, as well as new literary devices that aren’t always easy to quickly process. Thankfully, our fourth grade reading comprehension worksheets are here to guide your eager reader on this new journey. Besides fascinating passages that complement classroom readings, fourth grade reading comprehension worksheets are ideal for practicing everything from making a story map to deciphering point of view.

Spread the Words: Fourth Grade Reading Comprehension Worksheets Boost Literary Confidence

With math, parents and teachers get to rely on formulas to explain how numeric problems are solved. Unfortunately, when it comes to reading comprehension—that is, understanding what we read, then explaining it to others—there are no scientific formulas. The fact is, many students struggle with some (if not all) of the components associated with reading comprehension.

This is especially true in fourth grade, when the reading workload is ramped up like never before. Not only must fourth graders hit the books more frequently, but the texts are longer and often more difficult to understand. On top of that, this is the grade when several new and puzzling literary concepts are introduced. This is why we created our fourth grade reading comprehension worksheets.

Beyond a huge supply of interesting fictional passages, these fourth grade comprehension worksheets assist with reading retention through activities like writing a simple summary, story mapping, reading response, and how to make inferences and support them with evidence. There are even worksheets that explain the various complexities of poetry and how to determine if sentences are based on fact or opinion. Whatever comprehension help your fourth grade reader needs, we’ve got a worksheet that’s sure to speed up development and build confidence.
