Ereading Worksheets provides teachers, parents, and motivated students with high-quality reading worksheets, activites, and resources aligned with Common Core State Standards. This website uses a skill focused approach where each activity targets a specific set of skills. The resources on this website cover a broad range of reading, writing, and language arts skills and everything is ad supported and completely free of cost. I designed most of the activities on this site to be used with my 7th and 8th grade students, but when possible I have included .rtf files which you may use to edit and modify each assignment for your particular use. I believe that the assignments on this website are most appropriate for students grade 6-12, but with a few modifications these activities can be adapted for any grade level. I am committed to expanding and improving the content on this site and have begun to embrace an all digital assignment format that I call the “Ereading Worksheet.” I hope that you find this website useful and may you see the same growth and success in the classroom with your students as I have seen with mine.

Flash Based Ereading Worksheets: These require flash to use so they can’t play on many phones and tablets. Students answer multiple choice questions about reading skills and can print their results when they are finished. I am working to update all of these to HTML 5 format, but it takes a long time. One cool thing about this format is that you can embed them on your website.

    My grades 7-9 English classes have gained immensely from your obvious hard work. Unlike generic worksheets that are aimed mostly at killing time, the content you provide is rich and relevant. Thank you!

    Mr. Morton, I assume you take responsibility for these so-called reading worksheets? The grammar and usage is appalling. I found several errors and just plain bad writing in the first one I looked at (http://www.ereadingworksheets.com/reading-worksheets/making-inferences-answers.html). It certainly was not my intention to be critical, but the errors are so glaring I could’t help it. To list a few, “everyday”, “up stairs”, and “newly suspicious palms”. In this sense, you should use the everyday, two-word phrase “every day”. On the other hand, “upstairs” is where one goes, typically by walking up the stairs. Palms may get warm, palms may get clammy, but palms do not, ever, become suspicious, newly or not! I urge you to consider revising this material or simply take it down before it does more harm.

    Thank you for providing this excellent resource! I have used your worksheets throughout this year (and last) and have found them to be exactly the type of activity that was needed to help students practice a specific skill when there wasn’t enough time to read an entire novel or short story. Perfect.

  26. this is great

    As a district with 1:1 ipads, your ereadingworksheets are invaluable! Thank you for your hard work. I have used so many things from your site, do you ever sleep???

    • Ha ha.
      Not since I had my second child.


      I’m so happy that some people are using these.

      I’m going to make a slew more this summer.
      I’d like to get a more fluid navigation,

      more like a web-app too.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment.

      Best wishes!

    Mr. Morton, I know you have received many emails, etc. about your questionable topic(s) in your inference worksheets…..and I know that, after much (I feel, well-deserved) criticism over the Ruby scenario, you have since edited it. I wish it hadn’t taken as long as it did, though, since my child’s 4th grade gifted teacher gave a copy as an assignment a couple of weeks ago. I saw posts dating back to at least 2 1/2 years ago about it, but it was only about 6 months ago or less that you altered it. Aside from not understanding why/how you would really find any of those scenarios in Worksheet 1 or 2 to be both appropriate or necessary for most grade levels, especially as a writing/English/language assignment, I feel like some of your responses to those posts have been quite dismissive…..arrogant even. I think you are probably fully aware that many/most teachers don’t take the time to read every word of everything they hand out as an assignment (even though I personally think they should, if for no other reason than to avoid something like this being given out). With the exception of the Cassie scenario, I find all of the examples have a very negative scenario. What is the point of that? There are many other things that can be written about that you do not have to try so hard to surreptitiously normalize negative, aberrant, or illegal behavior…..without being overly simplistic. Many of the other worksheets in other sections of this site also have some questionable material, too, but they are slightly more benign, and are not as fleshed out or descriptive. Some of the language used in these scenarios read like an adult/romance novel…..or a soap opera skit…..or an afterschool special. Are you the author of any/all of the other worksheets, too? If so, I will try to recommend that any of my child’s teachers try to steer clear of this site in the future. Common Core is not a good thing to many people. :-(

    • Actually, Krista,
      I do expect teachers to read everything that they are
      distributing to their students.

      How can you possibly be prepared to teach something
      that you haven’t read?

      You do not like the worksheets that I have created.

      You think that I have behaved arrogantly
      and that I display bad judgement.

      I do not agree with your estimation,
      but I can accept it,

      but please don’t mistake my site as a representation of Common Core.

      People hate Common Core without really understanding it.

  34. This is so good

     /  March 23, 2014

    A big thank you from India where people depend a lot on English for jobs and careers.

  37. I just want to say: THANK YOU for SHARING YOUR GIFTS with the WORLD!

    In a pinch…you’re a cinch! A little rhyme to demonstrate the appreciation I have for your worksheets. The worksheets are quality products designed for teachers who want engaging, yet rigorous assignments for their students. Of course, rigor is relative! Thanks again!

  38. I don’t understand how I am supposed to do 10 theme questions in less than in hour if I cant find anything. Can someone please help me?

  39. Ellen Gilbert

     /  March 29, 2014

    Some of these examples are completely innapropriate! The example of a woman finding a barrette with hair color other than her own on her bedroom floor implying that her husband committed adultery is appalling! In addition, the poor grammar and sentence structure makes me fear for any student that reads the examples and thinks that the writing is acceptable.

    Phenomenal information…
    Thank you!

  41. Morgan

     /  April 3, 2014

    Thanks for sharing all your hard work and for free! These are probably some of the highest quality worksheets out there. I teach high level 4th graders, and they have benefited greatly from your sheets.

  42. Thank you so much mr.mortan, this is a great site and helps us a lot, by the way, how do you make an app?

    • Well, there are many ways to go about it. Basically, you can learn to code. If you are making an iPhone app, you need to learn Objective C. If you are making an Android app you need to learn Java. There are some nice frame works and wrap-arounds that you can use to simplify the process. For example, I make games using http://www.impactjs.com which allows you to make browser games with just a little bit of JavaScript knowledge.

      I encourage you to pursue your interest.
      Check out programming books at the library and start learning today.
