Worksheets By Grade Level
Our 40,000+ language arts worksheets are leveled by grade. We pride ourselves on being able
to provide students with accurate tasks and practice for the exact skills they will be
required to complete on assessments. This curriculum is aligned with the national standards
and framework. The flow of topics promotes a layered approach to learning. As you advance
through the grade levels you will also note that students are often taught in a spiral
fashion that leads to a more concrete learning process. These language arts worksheets
Kindergarten - Kindergartners start with
basic phonics and vocabulary activities. They then progress on to listening and reading
short passages for comprehension and understanding.
Grade 1 - We work mostly on
pre-reading skills at this level. We start to introduce language skills that require
repetition. This is a really good time to students invested in using study skills.
Grade 2 - Reading really takes leaps and
bounds at this level. We go from reading simple sentences to comparing and contrasting two
lengthy passages. Students should be working towards reading endurance.
Grade 3 - We take the next step.
Reading does really take a jump up at this level. I feel that the progression in required
vocabulary rises significantly at this level shift.
Grade 4 - This is the level where readers
really start to struggle as we add advanced phonics and have students focus on their reading
stamina. Students start to work on grammar skills as well as writing styles.
Grade 5 - This is where we start to
understand how to validate our answers with quotes and references. There is a good deal of
effort set towards understanding what we write and why we write it. Students will start to
write and read for purpose.
Grade 6 - We start to use more formal forms of
language and our reading levels jump leaps and bounds. Learners, at this point, are
preparing to enter secondary school and the work reflects that.
Grade 7 - The language section gets
a bit difficult for weak writers. Remind students that strong readers almost always become
Grade 8 - This level requires deep thinking
before writing and reading. Self evaluation and reflection is a critical aspect of this
grade level. This is the first time students are asked to this self evaluate themselves.
Grade 9-10 - For some reason the
curriculum committee lumped the high school grades together in pairs. The secondary level
has a wide variation of what works of literature they focus on from State to State and even
within regions of individual States themselves.
