New Kindergarten Reading Comprehension Workbooks

Yesterday we published updates to our reading comprehension workbooks for kindergarten students in our bookstore.  Each workbook contains 20 fiction and non-fiction stories, followed by reading comprehension exercises. Answer sheets are also provided.


Our reading comprehension workbooks are leveled from A-Z, based on the following grade-level text complexities:

  • Vocabulary words
  • High-frequency words
  • Average word size
  • Number of words per sentence, on average
  • Amount of repetition of words and phrases
  • Story length
  • Subject matter complexity

We’re sure you’re curious to see what the stories and exercises look like. Let’s show you one of our stories from our Level C workbook.

Sample kindergarten reading comprehension story


On each of our pages, we indicate the vocabulary words for each story. The high frequency words are included in a list at the beginning of each workbook.

Exercises follow each story


We have a set of three exercises that follow each story. Here’s what those look like for the above story.

Answer sheets for the exercises


After each set of exercises, we have included a page with the answers. We found that putting them behind each set of exercises makes it easier to access the answers.
