4th grade teaching tips
Readers in the fourth grade should develop more advanced skills as they pertain to reading unfamiliar words. This includes using their understanding of the sounds letters make, syllabic patterns, prefixes, suffixes, and root words to accurately read unknown words. Likewise, fourth graders should be able to explain the general type of informational text they’re reading, such as cause and effect, comparison, or chronology. The tips discussed below enable the development of these and other reading comprehension skills.
Visualize What the Text is Discussing
By encouraging readers to visualize what they’re reading, they will be more likely to understand it. For example, if a student is reading about what happens when water boils, they can visualize the process of adding water to a pan, turning on the range, heating up the water, and watching the steam rise as the water boils. This kind of visualization also facilitates an understanding of the type of reading – that it’s a process of cause and effect. Visualization is best used when students focus on events, people, places, or things.
Expose Readers to Word Meanings in Multiple Settings
Part of enabling students to learn how to read and decode unfamiliar words is to help them explore words in different types of settings. That is, instead of simply presenting students with new words by writing it on the board and having them copy it down, explain the meaning of the word, pick out the root of the word and discuss it, ask children to identify the prefix or suffix, and so on. Then, give students the opportunity to engage with the word in informational texts, literature, or even simpler readings, like magazines. The more opportunities children are given to learn new words, the more capable they will be of deciphering unfamiliar ones.
Use a Word Map
Graphic organizers like word maps are an excellent tool for encouraging improved understanding of words and word structures. A word map helps readers understand how words relate to one another by associating them with synonyms and antonyms. For example, students might learn the meaning of increasing by associating it with synonyms like expanding and antonyms like decreasing . Simply write the primary word, in this case, increasing , with lines connecting it to the associated words expanding and decreasing . Each associated word should be identified as a synonym or antonym.

I am looking for material for a 10-12 reading comprehension class. Your materials are great, but a lower interest level from HS students. Any suggestions for upper levels?
Thanks so much for sharing these wonderful worksheets!
Excellent and the really valuable resource.
Delores J. Mayes
My students has searched and found the answer keys to these readings. I wish there was a way the teacher’s could sign in for the content and keep the cheaters from having the honest kids miss out on these readings. What has our world gone to. This is so sad that my students would copy answers word for word and expect to get a 100% as well as their parents. We are growing a nation of untruth and cheaters.
Yeah, that is pretty frustrating.
It’s tough to keep the content free and open while preventing students from finding the answers.
One thing that might help is downloading the .RTF file and editing the titles of the assignments. A persistent student will still be able to find the answers, but that may make it a little harder.
Also, remember, cheaters are only cheating themselves! And the system and everyone else too, but mainly themselves! Best wishes!
Hi Ma’am Dolores. That happened to me years ago during the MDL (modular distance learning) in our country, Philippines. You know what I did, I shorten my URLs and add number 1 at the end of it. This way, they can no longer trace my resources.
Thank you Mr. Morton for sharing! Your material is just what we need to keep students busy during lockdown. I really appreciate it. K. Bardon

People like you make the world a better place.
I wish you all the success in the world, and hopefully some advertisers so you can start getting some money for all of this content.
Thank you for the kind words and the blessings. I wish you, as well, the greatest possible success.
Wonderful resources for teachers and learners.Express my heartfelt Thanks.

Reading comprehension is not only being able to communicate what is written on the page, but also understanding it and making sense of it. Reading is accepted as one the key skills for adults to be productive in society. The interesting fact is less than half of middle school students are reading at grade level in American schools. This easily translates to our workforce as a recent survey proved by the National Endowment for the Arts. U.S. employers cited reading and writing to be the weakest skills of their employees. Reading has been seen to help prevent Alzheimer's disease. A study of over 1,000 showed avid readers to be 2.5 times less likely to suffer from the disease. Reading helps you learn things that you never imagined before. It is the fundamental method for passing on knowledge.
There are a number of things we can do to improve our reading comprehension. When reading we should try to focus on reading content that we like, and we should read aloud as often as we can. Reading aloud has been shown to improve cognitive ability. If you run into a section of a reading passage that trips you up consider re-reading it. When you come across a word that you are not familiar with, write it down and look it up later. You will be much more likely to understand that word the next time you see it. When you finish reading make sure to write down any questions that you might have. In our reading comprehension worksheet section you find varying grade levels of reading worksheets that also come with multiple choice, free response, or essay questions. Sorry, but we can't provide you with word for word answers, since all the worksheets are either essays or free response. Just simple explanations will do there.

At this level students are working on discriminating words and sounds. We concentrate a great deal on letters and the sounds that they make. The absolute for teachers at this level has to be on making it money and getting in as much repetition as you can.
Grade 1 Reading Comprehension
We are just focused on recognizing general themes at this point. Students should focus on building words properly in their mind as they read.
Grade 2 Reading Comprehension
This is where we start to ask students real questions from page long passages. Being an avid reader is only one of the components of helping your comprehension. Constructing a mental picture in your mind as you read is a helpful activity.
Grade 3 Reading Comprehension
At this point students have a deeper vocabulary and we can ask them to begin to infer contextual meaning to a small degree. They can use those words in their own body of work, while writing, and recognize their use in the works of others.
Grade 4 Reading Comprehension
This is usually when the major national assessments start to appear. We expect readers to be able to make sense of text in a wide variety of settings. We would highly recommend daily work with extended passages for students.
Grade 5 Reading Comprehension
The work we have seen come out of most states and provinces has been focused on nonfiction for this level. This has been documented by a number of curriculum committees from the literature that I have seen, so I would not expect that trend to continue much longer.
Grade 6 Comprehension Worksheets
Students begin to read lengthy works and start to work on their reading endurance. We highly encourage teacher at this level to include some form of daily independent reading activity in their routines. This will pay you back ten-fold, if you can maintain a productive environment for students.
Middle School Reading Worksheets
We find at this level that there is a clear divide between those students that are struggling to keep the head above water and those that cruising right along. It usually comes down to vocabulary words. Those that have a low vocabulary index often have a weaker ability to comprehend. This series is really broad and is meant for extra practice for students in the grade range.
Grade 7 Worksheets
Things start to become much more content based as students approach high school. This is usually when most parents provide their children with mobile phones to stay in contact and keep tabs on their more independent children. We encourage you to minimize this distraction when students are reading.
Grade 8 Reading Worksheets
At this level we start to really encourage students to take notes as they read. This will help them to remember what they take in and using outlines can help a great deal as well. Creating a reader's nook in your classroom can also enhance their affinity towards putting the time in on the books.
Grade 9 Reading Comprehension Worksheets
We highly encourage students to discuss what they read to find hidden meanings that they may have missed. At this level we encourage teachers to share the books that they are reading independent with students. If you can try to pick works that are targeted for your lower level students, you might just engage them more.
Grade 10 Worksheets
This is where students start to begin reading classic literature and see new forms of language they have not seen until now. We encourage you to start setting monthly goals for your students. Students at this level are starting to prepare for college admissions to some extent and broadening their horizons should be your focus.
Grade 11 Worksheets
This is where students are urged to begin sharing their opinions of works. This helps them critically analyze text at a heightened level. This is where we want our students to be more reflective of their own skills. At this age they are well aware of what they do well and what they grapple with. Helping them learn to concentrate their efforts on the latter can pay a lifetime of benefits.
Grade 12 Worksheets
Students begin to prepare for college course work and take on much more difficult levels of thought. Show students how to keep a vocabulary log. This is where they encounter any word, they are uncertain of in a journal. Reviewing these words constantly can have huge dividends as they enter their college years.
Ask and Answer Questions
We created this as a miscellaneous reading section for students of all levels. It is great to help them transition to writing about what they read. You should have them try to determine the plot of the story just from the title. When they complete the work, they should compare their original thoughts with what they learned after completing the work. Have them write their own questions that were not part of the worksheet.
Science Content Area
These reading passages were created to help students and teachers working on reading in the content area.
Strategies to Improve Your Reading Comprehension
If you want to get the most out of what you read, whether you're pursuing your favorite hobby or improving yourself in school, it's essential to improve your reading comprehension skills. However, improving these skills can seem like an insurmountable task if you don't know where to start. The good news is that there are many strategies you can use to read more effectively and improve your understanding of what you read, no matter what type of material it is.
Here are 5 ways you can use to improve your ability to comprehend what you read.
1. Read With a Pen
It may seem ridiculous, but it works. Whenever you come across a word you don't know, circle it and keep going. When you're done reading, go back and look up each of those words in your dictionary or online.
Keeping that pen in hand forces you to process what you're reading and lets you naturally improve your vocabulary. You can even try highlighting or underlining certain lines as an alternative if writing with a pen isn't your thing.
2. Use the Skim and Scan Approach
Skim for facts, scan for ideas.
Our brains need time to process new information to fully understand what we read. Most of us read at a pace between 200 and 300 words per minute. But you can often digest a document better by reading it at 50 percent or even 25 percent of that speed—as long as you're skimming and scanning with purpose.
Skimming allows your brain to get familiar with what you're taking in through eyes so that when you go back through and start actually processing it, it's easier to absorb the information.
3. Take Notes
Read and write.
When our brain is tied up processing new information, it doesn't have any resources left over to create long-term memories. It also helps reduce distractions (you won't be looking at social media) and encourages deeper thinking (you have to remember what you read). So, every time we come across something important or interesting—whether it's a fact, an opinion, or just a snippet of dialogue—jot it down.
4. Understand Your Purpose
When you read, first decide why you're putting time into it: is it for information, amusement or reference?
Knowing your purpose helps get you in reading mode. A good place to start with a few simple paragraphs at a time and summarizing what you've just read in your head before moving on. This approach helps understand where sentences are going and makes connecting ideas much easier. When our brains automatically do cognitive work—like summarize—we remember more of what we read.
5. Practice Exercises
Practice makes a man perfect!
This can be accomplished in different ways. One way is to create flashcards and quiz yourself, and another is simply reading a large quantity of material. The key here is to push yourself harder than you usually do.
Set aside an hour or two each day for reading comprehension work and make sure it counts. Just skimming over something won't improve your skills very much at all. Instead, focus on your ability to pick out important details from what you read. If there are words or concepts that you don't understand, look them up in a dictionary or online and add them to your vocabulary list (or ask someone about them). Another thing you can do is try using context clues when trying to figure out difficult words.
The key to improving your reading comprehension lies in leveraging your inherent ability and some smart techniques. The best way is to read! In fact, read anything you can get your hands on. But also, try using some of our tips next time you find yourself with a page or screen in front of you and want something more out of it than just text or data.
