6th Grade Reading Worksheets

Oh, those loveable 6th graders! What would middle school be like with out them? Here are all of my reading worksheets that were written at the 6th grade level. I used this fantastic site to determine the readability scores of these worksheets, but you should read and approve them yourself before giving them to your students. Readability scores are not perfect and there are many different algorithms to determine readability scores. I use an average of these scores, but they can vary wildly. For these reasons, I encourage you to open up the reading levels two grade levels in each direction. This will give you a good selection of texts that are appropriate for a 6th grade student to read.

Only Include Worksheets Written at the 6th Grade Level Not Recommended
Include Worksheets Within 1 Grade Level (5th and 7th)
Include Worksheets Within 2 Grade Levels (4th through 8th) Recommended

    • Most teachers like it when students are required to explain their answers. It adds reflection and expression to the exercises. I do understand that when you are working on these by yourself, you may not be interested in answering short response questions. In that case, you can disable them on the screen where you enter your name. The option box is in the top right corner. Best wishes.

    Mr. Morton, could you check the answers for The Story of Keesh worksheet #’s 1 and 2? I believe the answers on the worksheet may be reversed, with the correct answer for 1 being “D”, and the correct answer for 2 being “A”. The electronic version provides different solutions than the worksheet answer key. Thanks in advance for reviewing, and great resource!
