Ereading Worksheets provides teachers, parents, and motivated students with high-quality reading worksheets, activities, 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.

     /  September 11, 2014

    I am a teacher, and I LOVE your stuff!! I use it often! Is there anyway that we could get a paper hand out version of your online tests? The ereading worksheets section all seems to be online only?

    • Thank you so much for saying so. I’m happy to hear it.

      You know, I have paper versions of all of those activities, but they are scattered around the site in their respective sections. I am currently working on building a database of the material on this site. This will allow people to find things way easier, filtering by grade level, skill, and such. It’s going to be great. I should have it up and running by December. Best wishes!

    I cannot begin to tell you how valuable your site has been to me this past year. This is my 27th year in education, but only my second year at the middle school level. Your resources are absolutely wonderful and I greatly appreciate your willingness to make them available to others free of charge. The words “thank you” do not seem to convey the gratitude I feel, but they will have to do. :)

  30. Kerrie

     /  December 4, 2014

    I noticed that my students can email their test results to me on the main idea test but only have an option to print on the adjectives/adverbs test. Their laptops do not allow them to print. I was unable to figure out a way to copy/paste the results into an email. Any suggestions? Do you have any plans on making all test results email-able in the future?


  31. Super Thankful

     /  January 14, 2015

    I absolutely love this site and use many resources. Just a suggestion…I love the Point of View Comic Strip project. I’m just wondering if you could take out the part about the laxatives at the end of the student sample if possible?

    • Well, I don’t have any other examples to use, but you could delete the image and create one of your own. Best wishes.

  39. Ken James

    Excellent resource! I am student teaching right now and your website has helped me immensely with creating lesson plans on poetry. Thank you!

    Hi Mr Morton
    I am writing a course for approaching underachieving boys and I believe multiple choice comprehension is one of the best ways to get them thinking and avoiding ‘writing reluctance’. Your material is excellent and I would like to include an example and place a link to your site in my material. Would you mind?

    • That’s fantastic.
      I look forward to your work.

      To anyone else reading this, I believe in an open web.
      I love and appreciate your links.

  41. Blanche

     /  February 16, 2015

    I love this site, especially the online test, but how can I get from the story to the questions? I have been trying to figure this out for days. Thank you in advance for your help.

    • Oh, you have to navigate using your browser tabs. Go back and forth between the windows by scrolling up, which should reveal your open tabs. Choose between the tabs by pressing on them. I’m going to develop a better way to do it, but that might not be ready until next year sometime. Best wishes!

  42. Jeanilyn F. Banania

    The site has been very helpful to me.
    It provides ample practice to my students. thank you so much!

    My English teacher suggested me your website to improve my English Literature level. I’m an ESL student. I highly recommend this website to all ESL students to improve their reasoning and critical thinking skills. Also this site can help migrants living in English speaking countries to improve their knowledge of English language
