One of the most important features of good reading instruction is to find interesting reading material at a level that your readers can enjoy or appreciate. We offer you this giant bundle of reading worksheets that have different variations on the worksheets theme. See the bulleted description below:
A Child's Garden of Verses is a wonderful way to teach your student beautiful handwriting and beautiful poems! A Child's Garden of Verses written by Robert Louis Stevenson is a beautiful collection of children's poems. He wrote many of them when he was still just a boy!
We have taken these poems and put them to four levels for you to choose which is best for your child:
Teaching reading can be so rewarding even if the effort is exhausting at times! A bright child can learn the basic phonics sounds in two or three months and begin to get better during the very first week.
Teaching phonics is the keystone to future reading comprehension success or rescuing a student that has had difficulty. Even slower students who know the phonics sounds and the phonics rules begin to advance quickly once reading clicks.
Once any student has the basic reading comprehension skills he is free to read, and thereby, to learn almost anything!
Most students still need phonics lessons and review throughout the elementary education years so as to practice the phonics rules for bigger words with prefixes and suffixes. The prefixes and suffixes are what expand reading comprehension at any age. Then? Practice makes perfect!
We find that when a student copies his work in a logical manner and says the sounds out loud he has an easy time using elementary reading worksheets. Writing the material, or copying it, ensures that your student has reviewed it and can then read it better.
The more a student reviews a passage, the more he can comprehend its meaning. It is one thing to hand a child what amounts to a quiz, it is entirely another to hand him a tool by which he can actively improve his skills with little one on one instruction! Take the quiz later!
We find that one of the best reading activities is, of course, to read. After that is it good to have the student copy his work in a logical manner and say the phonics sounds of any difficult words out loud to improve his reading and writing skills. Writing the material, or copying it, ensures that your student has reviewed it and can then read it better.
If a student reviews a passage several times in several ways he can more easily comprehend its meaning. For older students Reading comprehension can be improved by reading a good selection alone in a quiet place and reading only difficult phrases out loud as needed for comprehension. We believe that once a student has worked through several complicated books well, that he is able then to read anything after that.
It is one thing to hand a child a worksheet that amounts to a quiz, yet it is an entirely different thing to hand him our practice reading worksheets that have the correct spelling to copy. Copy work is a reading activity by which a student can actively improve his skills by his own efforts.
Even handwriting practice helps reading comprehension since the student must pay attention to every character in the words read. Take the quiz later, after the basics are learned! Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote from a book to a slate and college students take notes all day long. Writing does aid reading and memory.
After a student can read at a third or fourth grade level the main difference in books between the elementary grades is the length of the book and maturity of content. High school books are longer, have fewer pictures, and cover more complicated material. Choose books that meet your students reading ability and general ability to sit through a long study.
A-Z Worksheets are handmade for real children. We use these reading worksheets with our own students and hope that our own grandchildren will also learn the material they teach! We are continually adding new materials. There are no fees, no worksheet generators, or registrations necessary to print our free Math worksheets or any of our free printable worksheets. See our growing list of free printable Reading Worksheets below and use our left navigation bar to see thousands of free printable worksheets and elementary worksheets.
We are happy to recommend The Phonics Road by Barbara Beers, Romalda Spalding's The Writing Road To Reading, Sound Beginnings by Julia Fogassy, Riggs (the first 26 phonics flash cards have ruled lines!), Saxon Phonics, and Yes! Phonics DVD phonics flash cards as the best reading lesson plans for elementary education with reading activities and many a phonics activity that aim at teaching the phonics sounds and the phonics rules. These companies all have a flavor of teaching phonics explicitly, not making the child guess or hope to take a photographic memory of a billion words!
We'd like to recommend a dear lady who loves to help students! She's so bright and inviting that everything she does is fun! Rene is a Learning Disabilities Reading Tutor who offers a site that is not just for parents teaching their LD child, but for ANYONE who has a child struggling with reading and will benefit from a 20+ year reading specialist. What is so rare is that she offers LIVE one-on-one Virtual Tutoring also and really teaches the basics like phonics as she starts if your student has not mastered that aspect of reading. We'd like you to see Rene's heartwarming reading success stories especially if you're from the Topeka, Kansas area!
We'd like to recomend a nice idea here, too:
Short Story Time
Listen To Stories Read Online: This darling homeschooling family reads Classics, Poetry, Bible Stories and more. Get lost in a story and build character traits as well as a lifelong love of reading! Listening to good literature helps a student get a feel for good grammar for reading and writing.
Be encouraged to choose which ever level you desire. Do not fear choosing the wrong level, especially if it seems like a high level.
Mr. John Gatto, one time New York City and New York State Teacher of the Year and accomplished author, once said that old timers had had their students work through one hard book. Guess what? Ever after that the student could read anything! Mastery learning has its merits especially with math, typing and music; yet once a student learns the phonics sounds and the phonics rules there is no boundary necessary in teaching reading comprehension! Weve seen this sort of success in many students!
Teaching phonics lessons to young students is much easier when there is an example of the words before the student with the correct spelling on practice phonics worksheets. We offer the right spelling for elementary Reading Worksheets and copying the right spelling on elementary reading worksheets for higher levels. Every one of these can serve as handwriting practice worksheets. We also offer cursive handwriting worksheets since many elementary students have learned cursive writing.

We would also like to recommend the Reading Pen by Wizcom for older students as it voices the word it scans and has a dictionary for vocabulary skills which would enhance any reading comprehension activities especially in the sciences and history where one understands how to say an unfamiliar word better when he hears it spoken.
We also find and recommend many great elementary education reading resources which decorate our pages for your convenience.
