Reading Comprehension Homework Fourth Grade

Fourth Grade Reading Comprehension Worksheets & Printables

Reading and comprehension go hand in hand. So do the struggles associated with both, especially when students reach fourth grade, when classroom texts become much more complex. One way to cut through the confusion is to incorporate reading material that kids find compelling—which is precisely the goal of our fourth grade reading comprehension worksheets. Be it nonfiction informative texts about endangered species, foreign countries, and historical figures, or fables like The Wizard of Oz, your child will have no trouble finding stories that pique her interest. And the more interested she is in a story, the more likely she’ll be able to recall information. Worksheets also include literary tips for how to structure a story, establish point of view, and use compare-and-contrast techniques, while fun activities like a make your own cartoon page are sure to spark creativity. When your fourth-grader becomes more confident in his reading comprehension abilities, consider taking her to a bookstore and have her pick out an age-appropriate book. After she completes each chapter, tell her to take out a sheet of paper and summarize the plot, figure out the point of view, and describe the characters.
