Pennington Publishing has been your “go-to” resource for teacher-created, assessment-based ELA and reading instruction for the last 15 years. After persistent pleas, we have compiled a “greatest hits” package of 1000 ELA/Reading Worksheets for grades 4−8 teachers. No “drill and kill” fillers in this collection or silly word searches or crossword puzzles—only the best Standards-based worksheets to create the PERFECT WORKSHEETS BUNDLE.
What makes these worksheets so special? Each worksheet has been designed for individualized instruction with formative assessments and most include answers for students to self-correct. Each worksheet has been field-tested in grades 4−8 teacher classrooms as part of the author’s comprehensive programs: Teaching the Language Strand, Teaching Essay Strategies, Teaching Reading Strategies, Essential Study Skills, and Critical Thinking Openers Toolkit (all available here at TpT).But don’t take my word for it.
"Written by a teacher for teachers and their students. It shows. You write like I teach."
"The most comprehensive and easy to teach grammar, usage, mechanics, spelling, and vocabulary program. The worksheets are fantastic. I’m teaching each Standard in the Language Strand and remediating previous grade level Standards."
"Great step by step worksheets that help students build or reinforce essay writing skills."
"Critical Thinking Openers is an excellent product. Provides additional writing practice and is thought provoking."
"I work with a large ELL population at my school and was not happy with the weekly spelling tests, etc. Through my research in best practices, I know that spelling patterns and word study are so important at this age group. Your worksheets rock!"
"Use with both my study skills and reading remediation classes. Wonderful resource!"
"I just purchased your Teaching Reading Strategies and, oh my, I actually felt my heart leap with joy! I am working with one class of ESL students and two classes of Read 180 students with behavior issues and have been struggling to find methods to address their specific areas of weakness. I just wanted to thank you for creating these explicit and extensive resources for students in need. Thank you!"
