Printable 4th Grade Reading Comprehension Worksheets

In the 4th grade we look for students to start to become a little more independent with their reading and attach a value of importance on reading. This is also the first grade level where reading level become self-evident to students. The strong readers seem to breeze through most of school while the struggling readers seem to be stuck in mud with their learning. This is why we encourage all 4th grade teachers to model a consistent self-reading program with students. What we mean by this is to share with your class what you are reading as an adult. At this level students as quietly searching for a role model and what better role model than their teacher. What I do is every Monday I set aside five minutes to explain to students what I read over the weekend. I ask students to make predictions on where the stories I am reading are going and we review their predictions the following Monday. Which ever student guesses correctly, I give them a sugar-free lollipop. This is pretty effective for getting students engaged.

These worksheets contain reading assignments and sets of questions for your fourth grade students. In this section we have a huge series of reading comprehension worksheets specifically designed for fourth grade students. We refer to the goal for this grade level as the CONFIDENCE Stage. We want young readers to start believing in themselves, to the point, where the start don't feel any fear of going off on their own reading away. This is usually the reading testing grade level for most students. Students are ready to read and comprehend a little more. They are just about ready for completely independent reading. You should really try to work with these sheets as much as possible.
