Reading Worksheet For 2nd Graders

Reading Worksheet For 2nd Graders – I started publishing some of my printable reading comprehension worksheets specifically for animals. I’d like to start with a clever quote about a black cat named Tom. The quote goes like this:

Tom is a black cat. He lives in a house. He drinks milk and eats cat food. His master sometimes gave him fish. After every meal he licks himself to clean his fur. Tom is a little cat, and his owner calls him cat. Tom likes to play with balls of yarn. He pretends to see a mouse, he runs to catch it. He meows when he’s hungry and pants when he’s happy. Tom is a happy cat and he purrs often.

As you can see, the text is very simple. I use these reading fluency and comprehension worksheets to give my second and third grade students a chance to practice their reading skills. I sometimes use it in 1st grade and even 4th grade depending on the reader’s level. The tasks and questions that follow the passage suggest that students know the vocabulary of animal colors and sounds. That’s why I designed 14 color flashcards and 39 animal sound flashcards. Using my reading comprehension worksheets is a great opportunity to expand students’ vocabulary.

Elizabeth is very worried about her Chubitubaro. He took it to a mechanic this morning because it was making a very strange noise the day before. This morning, his Chubitubaro will not start!

Students love made up words! The stupider and stranger, the better. Read the paragraph to your students or have them read it themselves. Then, work with a friend to figure out what they are
