Ereadingworksheets.com provides teachers, parents, and motivated students with the best available reading worksheets, resources, and activities available on the web absolutely free of cost. The assignments on this website were created for 7th and 8th grade students; however, with a few modifications, they can easily be used for students grade 6-12. For each reading worksheet there is a pdf (good for printing), an htm file (to preview without downloading), and rtf file (to modify the assignment in your word processor). Using the RTF files, you can do anything from personalizing each activity to removing or including challenging vocabulary words.
