What educators are saying

Thank you for making these. I am always looking for high interest reading comprehension passages for my class. I love the variety of topics.
These are a great way to find evidence in the text and to use it to answer questions. My students can really write a complete sentence by using these.


This pack includes 20 worksheets that are designed for end of 1st grade and beginning of 2nd grade classrooms. These worksheets are meant to help with reading, comprehension, and writing complete sentences.

Each worksheet has a small, simple story and 5 comprehension questions about it. All worksheets contain the questions: who, what, when, and where. There will be either a “why” or a “how” question too but not both.

These reading comprehension worksheets can help with going back into the story to underline the answers from the questions. They can also read the story several times to practice with fluency. Students should be answering the questions in complete sentences.

Use these worksheets for homework, seatwork, reading centers, small group, or as part of your reading lesson or as an assessment.
