Kindergarten Reading Worksheets

You will find lots of kindergarten reading worksheets on the pages in this section. The worksheets were created to fit into a Guided Reading Level C category: they have 2-5 lines of text, focus on common sight words, are highly supported with pictures, and require text-based answers to the comprehension questions. However, the ways the reading comprehension questions are to be answered varies. In one set children circle the multiple choice answer, in another they bubble in the answer, and so forth. So look at each section carefully to see which one best meets your needs. Or just have fun and browse through all of them!

72 worksheets – 4 levels with 18 worksheets each, in color and black & white. Three of the four sets have answers sheets.

More reading for kindergarten! This set differs from the other sets of kindergarten reading worksheets in that there are four sight word rich sentences (instead of two or three).

Also, each reading worksheet uses at least one exclamation point or question mark to add excitement, intrigue, and use of the imagination. Topics include farm animals, a dress, pumpkins, popcorn, a boat, and a pet dog.
