I created these worksheets once I realized that the basics were being skipped with many ESL students. It may seem very basic for even a fifth grader, but I found that it was hard for them to do reading comprehension when some of the simplest words were not being understood. These worksheets will give you a good bottom line to see what level your esl student is operating at. The directions are in English and Spanish! Harder versions are to come! These worksheets would also work wel for some K-3 english as first language students as well. Enjoy!
