    Thank you very much for the extremely helpful worksheets you provide. I just wanted to let you know that on your Making Inferences worksheet #1 there is a story that is not really appropriate for students in middle school. The story tells about a wife who finds a hair clip in her bed, but it doesn’t belong to her or her daughter. It implies that the husband is cheating. I am sure that there are many other instances that could be used to have students practice inferences, without bringing this subject matter to them. Kids are already growing up too fast, and are exposed to too much, too early. Just a thought. Other than that one thing, both myself and my students are greatly benefitting from your work.

    As a first year teacher, it has been difficult for me to create worksheets that are effective and easy to understand. The resources on this website have been a tremendous help! Thank you!

      I remember my first year teaching (with a tinge of pain), and I’m happy to help.

    As a teacher in California, this is great stuff. Very closely matches our ELA standards.

      That’s excellent. I hope one day for national reading standards. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    This is one of the best sites that I’ve come across this year. Please add more reading comprehension passages that require higher order thinking skills. 🙂
