Mrs. O'Donnell/ October 27, 2016
I had my students take the Capitalization Practice 1. Question 19 has the incorrect answer, my 7th graders challenged.
19. Veteran’s Park is about as far west as you can go in the country without stepping foot into a lake.
Answer according to you: West should be capitalized
Correct Answer: NO NEED to capitalize ‘west’ since it’s just a compass direction.
Please respond so I can share the answer with my 7th graders!
Mr. Morton/ October 27, 2016
Your student is correct. I will update this answer when the time is available. Thanks for informing me. Best wishes!

this is a good site
Vickie/ September 6, 2016
LOVE this site! I teach ESL and ABE and it is so helpful for both. I especially like the graphic organizers used in the reading worksheets. Do you have full sized graphic organizer templates? My students would really benefit from them
Mr. Morton/ September 10, 2016
I’d love to get a page of graphic organizers together. That sounds like a project for the future. Thank you for the suggestion.
Mr. Straus/ August 15, 2016
I started using this site as a supplementary resource 3 years ago and am very impressed with the enhanced organization and navigation that you have put into it since then. These lessons and worksheets are perfect for my high school ELL students.
Mr. Morton/ August 17, 2016
Thank you. I am always working to create more content and improve the site. Thanks for visiting regularly.
Rose Tracy/ July 26, 2016
AWESOME resource! So thankful this is available. I use it for all my students, at varying levels. Especially love the Figurative Language worksheets!
Mr. Morton/ July 26, 2016
Thank you so much for saying so.
Check out my new free game: Poetry Cat.
It’s a fun way for students to review figurative language and poetic devices if they have computer or pad time.
Thanks for taking the time to comment and best wishes!
Salomon Torres Vidal/ July 18, 2016
It’s a helpful tool for teachers, especially those who work with task based approach.
Isobel/ July 4, 2016
Dear Mr. Morton,
Thank you very much for being so generous in sharing these materials. It has been a great resource for supplementary instructional materials. It’s very easy to understand.
Mrs. Elizabeth Cruz/ May 5, 2016
Dear Mr Norton,
First of all receive my deepest gratitude for sharing this outstanding work with teachers all over the world.
I am studying DELTA (University of Cambridge) at the moment in Mexico city and I want to include some of your work in one of my assignments about how to teach inference and give you credit for this, should I just write “Mr Norton” in my bibliography?
I look forward to your prompt reply,
Mr. Morton/ May 5, 2016
Thank you for the kind words.
My name is Mr. Morton.
My full name is Donald E. Morton, if you wan’t to consistently format your works cited page.
Nancy Bjerkeset/ May 2, 2016
Thank you for the well-developed and well-organized material! I read what “concerned teacher” wrote, and feel that it is important that we teachers proofread for each other because minor mistakes (or differences due to dialect) sneak into all writing – such is life. The materials you offer us are the epitome of unselfishness.
Mr. Morton/ May 5, 2016
That’s nice of you to say. Thank you.
Lorianne Hoenninger/ April 5, 2016
I am an assistive technologist working with students with reading disabilities. We love your website. I have a question though. It is possible to use a text reader to have the reading worksheets read aloud, for those students who are working on reading comprehension, not decoding. BUT the questions cannot be read aloud. That print is blocked. Is it possible to unblock the question text?
Mr. Morton/ May 5, 2016
The questions aren’t “blocked.” Rather, the text has been converted to images to help with scaling. It’s unfortunate. I have recently created a new format of these worksheets where the text is actual text. This is much better. But it will take a while to convert all of the old ones. I will do it as soon as I can. In the meantime, check out these and let me know how they work: http://www.ereadingworksheets.com/free-reading-worksheets/short-stories-with-questions/
Delores Dorland/ April 1, 2016
I stumbled across this website while I was looking for worksheets on adverbs and adjectives for my Adult Basic Education classes. The videos and worksheets are a great help to them. I have recommended it to my fellow GED/HiSET instructors. I especially like the Text structure and Figurative Language sections.
Mr. Morton/ April 4, 2016
Thank you for helping to spread the word.
David/ March 19, 2016
I’m a high school teacher from England and I find all your resources so helpful. You are brilliant for sharing them. Thank you so much. The more worksheets on protestors keeping their dignity the better!

Thank you so much for sharing such incredibly helpful material and resources! These must have taken hours to prepare, and I for one appreciate the time they save me. They are also very concise and cover a wide range of relevant topics. Again, thank you!
Mrs. K/ January 12, 2016
I enjoy using this site and have recommended it to others that I work with! Do you know if there is a site similar for SS? I found one that is close for math!
Thanks in advance!
Mr. Morton/ January 19, 2016
As you’ve mentioned, I developed imathworksheets.com with my friend Mr. Colwell. It has a similar design to this website. I have not developed a social studies website, but I do have a cache of social studies materials that I will upload to a separate section on this site one day… Best wishes.
Nishi/ January 11, 2016

Mr. Morton/ September 4, 2015
Thank you for visiting! I think that you’re awesome too.
Reading Teacher/ September 4, 2015
I just want you to know how much your worksheets and PowerPoints have helped my students. I work in a very low income rural district. They hired me to help improve reading scores and of course had no curriculum and no intention of buying anything. Thank goodness I found your website! My 7th and 8th graders saw a 50% increase on their state achievement test! And they absolutely love trashketball!
Mr. Morton/ September 4, 2015
It sounds like you’re doing an excellent job teaching. Thanks for visiting my website and sharing your success!
michael/ September 3, 2015
ntext clues worksheet question. “Even when the police officers placed handcuffs on my mother, she maintained her dignity, holding her head up high as she was marched off the protest line.” Is this type of worksheet question aligned with the Common Core Standards? Very odd for a worksheet question considering the following statements were about sunshine and flowers. Appears as a ruse to influence my child. Inappropriate at the least
Mr. Morton/ September 3, 2015
Common Core State Standards are a set of educational standards. They do not represent any particular content. I have aligned activities on this website with the Common Core State Standards. I am in no way affiliated with the organization that produced the Common Core State Standards. I apologize that you found the content that I produced to be inappropriate. I respect your right to parent as you see fit, but please do not forget that our country has been built and shaped by protestors, and that standing up for what one feels is “right” does not have to be inappropriate, so long as it is done in a civil manner.
Concerned Teacher/ August 25, 2015
I believe there are several errors on your capitalization practice answer key.
21. Bekka read Someone to Love Me for her book report.
22. Keisha invited her friends to a Pool Party for her Birthday ERROR: pool party/birthday
23. Did she name the kitten Sunshine because of its golden fur?
24. I wonder if he read the book in social studies class.
25. On Monday, Ms. Smith gave us a science project.
26. the Amazon River is the longest river in South America. ERROR: The
27. Get me a Big Mac, would you?
28. Janet said wearily, “Could you help me up?”
Mr. Morton/ August 25, 2015
Thanks! I don’t know how those got there… 😀
Celine/ August 22, 2015
Thank you so much for sharing this excellent material. Do you know where I could find similar worksheets that combine a grade 1 and 2 level reading level with grades 6-12 interest? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide, and thank you again for this great resource.
Mr. Morton/ August 23, 2015
I am afraid that I know of no such resource, but I’d like to add more content for younger students this year.
Shanna/ August 20, 2015
This site is fantastic! I use the resources for my homeschooled 6th grader. One thing that would be helpful is for the online reading comp report to include the Q&A responses for the multiple choice questions. We could then use them for reporting to our charter school and I could review incorrect answers with my student.
Mr. Morton/ August 23, 2015
That’s a great suggestion. I’m going to revise the format of these quizzes and add some new ones this year. I will implement your suggestion.
Lucy/ August 12, 2015
Thank you for this wonderful resource. My son was slipping through the cracks in school and teachers these days don’t seem to have the time or inclination to assist them further when required.
Mr. Morton/ August 18, 2015
Teachers are stretched very thin in a 30:1 classroom. I’m glad that my work has helped you and your son.
samuel denson/ July 30, 2015
hello this is my first time on this site in a while but it seems there are a lot of improvements this is a wonderful educational site thank you for all you do
Mr. Morton/ July 30, 2015
You are most welcome. Thank you for coming back. I’m continually updating the site… though usually in batches.
Val/ July 21, 2015
I use your resources for my son who is Autism Spectrum. Text understanding is very difficult as he has language difficulties. I find your ”Don’t tell. Show worksheet” is useful. At the moment, there are not much worksheets. I found one and the exercise is mainly given the “telling” and ask to write “showing” . Would it possible to have more. Many Thanks!
Mr. Morton/ July 22, 2015
I’ll see what I can do. Thanks for visiting!
TRISY/ June 23, 2015
Thanks to this site I finally understand what a semicolon is used for! yay thanks!
melina/ June 10, 2015
