  1. Mr. Morton,

    Question # 4 under identifying theme’s (about Mr. Pig and Mr. Dog) seems a bit demented. The dog ended up eating the pig, because he did not share, really? That is the best story you could come up with to tell a story about “greed”? Why would the pig owe the dog anything, we do not know there relationship?

    You are brilliant! I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate these materials. They are perfect for my struggling readers at the high school level. They’re short readings which helps them stay focused on the particular skill we’re working on. THANKS A MILLION!

    Thanks! I’m a new teacher and this is the first site I go to looking for material for my classes. I was recently complimented by my principal for an activity she saw my class doing during my observation. She asked if I had created it myself and I “confessed” to using this site. Her response? “Wonderful! Use great resources whenever you can find them!”

    I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate this resource, especially since they are FREE!!! I am in the process of trying to teach a 100% differentiated classroom, and these were lifesavers.

    Reply
    • Isn’t differentiation something? I am of the mindset that it is better to do one thing excellently than ten things half-heatedly, but this is the panacea of modern education. Anyway, I whipped something to address this differentiated instruction thingy.

    Thank you so much! The best resource for easy-to-use, comprehensive reading comprehension worksheets that I’ve found on the internet. I just looked at the lesson on theme, a topic I did not have info on & it really provided me with good wording to explain it in my mind, and then to use with my 1st – 3rd-year students. I am a Montessori teacher at a charter school, and we do not use textbooks, but are required to prepare students for the state-mandated assessments. To get the info for free is also a big help! Thanks again!

    Great site! Thanks for sharing. I have a question on the figurative language interactive practice test 4: should #4 be a hyperbole and #15 be a simile? As my honors students were completing the practice, many questioned these two as did I.

    Reply
    • Sure sure. The study of figurative language isn’t exactly a science; there’s certainly some crossover here and there. I interpreted #4 as follows: “[Ralph] blew a jet of water in the air.” I found that to be a comparison between a jet and a stream of water, but it hinges on your understanding of the author’s use of “jet.” #15 is definitely supposed to be a simile. That’s an error. I’ll try to fix that right now…

    Mr. Morton,
    This is a wonderful site. Thank you.
    I have to echo Ms. C’s comments regarding the use of your site for my department. This will provide an invaluable resource for them when they need a little “go-to” skills- based practice. I feel completely blessed to have stumbled upon it today.
    Regarding the answer keys: I’m not sure what most of the fuss is about. I would never assign my students anything that I hadn’t read through and completed myself. This ensures all of the content is appropriate in my eyes, but also allows me to recognize any potential challenges my students will have and be ready to address them. I always generate my own keys, even when they ARE provided.
    Finally, I agree that to censor pieces of writing because it may be “destructive” to students does them a disservice. The classroom should be a safe place where authentic discussion can take place, not a cocoon wherein students should pretend tough issues don’t exist in the real world.
    Thanks so much again.

    WOW!!! Shocked beyond belief. I am a mom of an 11 year old 6th grader. I don’t care how old you are…0 to 100. No one should have a sheet of paper infront of them that asks them to infer anything about adultery. Of all the items in life to infer why would anyone take the time to write and print about infidelity. Inferenceworksheet 1 number 4 does just that. It happens…YES…but even if you are in college you shouldn’t have that as a worksheet. I know you won’t print this in your comments. I know you said it had that example in it…but WHY. What if the person reading it had it happen in their family and their family really was torn apart due to this type of situation. Really! You must not be thinking about the BIG PICTURE HERE MR. MORTON. If you are really as smart as your ereadingworksheet page….you will personally email me and tell me WHY you thought you needed to use this example to TEACH. This is not teaching. This is DISTRUCTIVE. Down right non respectful. Thanks for reading them. I would like you to prove you read all comments. I challenge you to send me a personal email.

      Personally, I feel such things should be discussed and understood,
      rather than hidden and avoided,
      but I’m no moral authority.

      Let’s open it up for discussion.
      Should I edit out #4 on inferences worksheet,
      because it deals with adultery?

      Reply
      • Keep it. Much of classic literature has reference to sexuality and adultery. Take, for example, Chaucer’s use of the cuckold. Students learn these things regularly in the course of their studies. Literature often provides moral lessons and, much of the time, these lessons are learned by example; i.e.- a “learn from my mistakes” model. If you were to censor every unpleasant thing in literature, there would be little left to learn from. And if you’re censoring things because a student may have had something similar happen in their family, then we would have to censor almost anything that dealt with death, as well, now wouldn’t we?

        Art imitates life and sometimes life isn’t fair and it isn’t pleasant. While we should not glorify immoral behavior, it is an insult to the author, the art, and the students’ intelligence to hide the fact that it exists.

        I believe you should keep this question on the worksheet. It is a topic that should be discussed not hidden away. I am a child from a family that was torn apart in this way and it would have been nice to have had discussions about it outside the home. Mrs.Knoefel unfortunitly is responding like a parent who had her home ripped apart in this way. She has the right to her opinion as do the rest of us.
