9th Grade Reading Worksheets

I always loved my 9th grade students. They still had a touch of that helpfulness that elementary students have. They were still adapting to high school and to being freshmen. Those were the days!

This page contains all of my reading worksheets that were written at a 9th grade reading level. I used this readability scanner to determine the grade level for these worksheets. I recommend looking two grade levels above and below to increase your range.
