What's Your Question?
Where to Find Printable Reading Worksheets
Teaching children to read is an important skill they’ll use for the rest of their lives. When children need extra practice using their reading skills, it helps to have worksheets available. You can find an assortment of printable reading worksheets for free and for sale on several websites.
There are several teacher websites where you can download reading comprehension worksheets they created for their classrooms. One advantage of using these worksheets is that they are designed for specific reading levels and have been tested in a classroom. Many follow the formats used on state and local tests that measure reading ability. The teachers sometimes include anecdotal notes and tips for making the worksheets more effective.
Publishers of textbooks, education research and professional development books sometimes offer worksheets on their websites. These worksheets usually are samples from the books they publish so that you can preview the content. Book publishers sometimes produce worksheets to pair with their books. If you’re looking for additional practice while reading a specific book, check out their websites for graphic organizers and comprehension questions.
You also can purchase collections of traditional and homeschool worksheets in digital books arranged by reading level. Many of these collections are themed by genre or subject matter. This makes it easy to select worksheets that match the child’s interest or to build background knowledge in specific areas.
Teacher Resource Sites
Whether you’re a teacher or a parent, teacher resource websites are another option for finding reading worksheets. Some sites like Teachers Pay Teachers let teachers upload worksheets they’ve created and offer them for sale. Others are more collaborative and give teachers a place to share best practices and materials with others. If you’re looking for materials to use in a homeschool setting or for after-school practice, check out these sites. In addition to the worksheets, you get access to a community of educators who can help you find the right materials for your children.
Even for-profit literacy programs offer free worksheets for parents and teachers. Although they’re usually designed for use with the company’s program, you can use them for other lessons. For example, the company Reading Horizons has downloadable phonics worksheets that work with its digital phonics program and face-to-face lessons. English learner sites are other good sources. Because these programs are geared toward children learning the English language, they incorporate social studies and science lessons along with the reading skills.
Nonprofit Literacy Groups
Organizations like ReadWorks and edHelper have reading comprehension worksheets available on their websites. You can find reading passages with question sets and vocabulary support to help children practice and improve their reading skills. On the ReadWorks website, you can search for worksheets by grade level, text type and topic. This makes it easy to find worksheets that meet the child’s specific needs.

Home > Social Studies Worksheets > The Attacks of September 11th
One of the most devastating attacks ever to occur on United States soil in American history happened on September 11, 2001. 19 terrorists linked to the Al-Qaeda (an Islamic extremist group) took control of 4 commercial airplanes. The planes were filled with everyday Americans. Three of the planes hit their target and one plane crashed before reaching its target. Two of the aircraft were crashed into the World Trade Center towers resulting in their complete destruction and the death of over 2,000 people. A third plane was crashed into the Pentagon building resulting in the death of 125 people. This is event is commonly referred to as just September 11th or 9-11. The 9 signifying the month of September and the 11 for the day of the month. This single event has had a lasting effect. The U.S. military engaged in two wars (Iraq and Afghanistan) as a result. The purpose of Afghanistan war was to dismantle the group responsible for the attacks. The military entered Iraq to depose the standing President Saddam Hussein who was suspected of creating weapons of mass destruction, which was never proven. A number of federal agencies and departments were created to clamp down immigration into America which was seen as a way to secure local communities from the threat of terrorism. The United States air travel system has ramped up airport security to levels never seen before.
Students will explore events prior to and after the attacks occurred. The readings will help students better understand the mindset of people and the culture at the time. We will also look into the people and organization that was behind the attacks. The worksheets start by introducing the attacks and the response by the U.S. government. We look at the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, the Patriot Act, and a nation against terrorism.

September 11th 9/11.
The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda on the United States on the morning of September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,996 people and injured over 6,000 others and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage. The impact of 9/11 extends beyond geopolitics into society and culture in general. Immediate responses to 9/11 included greater focus on home life and time spent with family, higher church attendance, and increased expressions of patriotism such as the flying of flags. It is important to share with students the importance of September 11, 2001; how it impacted individuals and the nation; and why it was a pivotal moment in U.S. history. In the days immediately following the attacks, many memorials and vigils were held around the world, and photographs of the dead and missing were posted around Ground Zero.On every anniversary, in New York City, the names of the victims who died there are read out against a background of somber music. The President of the United States attends a memorial service at the Pentagon, and asks Americans to observe Patriot Day with a moment of silence.
