These are worksheets that were created for Kindergarten students that are just getting started with reading. This is the level where pre-readers and sentence-level readers collide a bit. Many Kindergarten teachers are usually the first wave of the assault on getting kids to love to read. It is a seemingly impossible task that many veteran teachers handle like a BOSS. This is a critical skill that follows people all the way through life. Parents need to realize the importance of this year and do everything in their power to support the teachers' effort in the classroom. Reading is a lifelong skill that is often overlooked in a society that is dominated by 140 character thoughts from random people with some level of fame. If you scroll down you will see many Kindergarten level reading sheets that you can print.

What Reading Skills Do Kindergarteners Need?
When a student is prepared for kindergarten there are several skills that are often present as far as reading goes. They should be able to recognize and even read their name. Hopefully, they know their alphabet and can recite it from memory. They may know some sound that letters make, but not all. They can easily hear a rhythm whether it be in a song or a voiced sentence. Students that are ready understand that they should read a cover of a book from right to left. They also inheritably understand that everything should be observed from the top to the bottom. Ready kindergarteners can almost always retell their favorite story that they heard or saw. Many times, a student is lacking in a few of these qualities and that is not an alarm, but a subtle caution that they may need more time to develop their skills.
Helping Kindergarteners Become Better Readers
Reading is like taking an inexpensive yet fulfilling vacation. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by problems piling up in your life, you can become someone else, be a part of someone else’s story and escape the real world, if only for a little while, simply by picking up a book.
Reading is an excellent pastime; not only does it enable you to shake off stress, but it also benefits you cognitively by increasing your knowledge, attention span and memory. You get to learn from characters in stories as they witness life situations that are quite relatable at times. The best part is that hardcovers and eBooks allow you to read in both online and offline settings. It’s no surprise that some of the most successful innovators in the world today are readers. However, it’s easier to make reading a habit when it is done from a young age.
While it can be challenging to make kindergartners better readers, it isn’t impossible. The primary motivation behind helping kindergarteners become better readers is that once they start to enjoy reading, the chances are that they will continue this habit for the rest of their lives. Keep reading to discover how you can help kindergarteners become better readers at school or at home.
Let Your Kindergartener Choose the Book They Want to Read
As an adult, you may feel responsible for guiding children, but sometimes you need to let children make their own choices in order for them to learn. It doesn’t have to be a big decision that may impact their health, like deciding to have candy for breakfast, but something small like choosing the book they want to read is harmless. When a child picks a book from the options that are set out for them, you need to let them read what they want. A kindergartener will enjoy reading a story they picked instead of one picked for them by someone else because the reason why they picked the book in the first place is that they felt interested in it. You have to fuel that very interest by granting them the independence to choose the story they’d like to read. Brownie points for adding picture books or comics to their options, stories they’d actually enjoy to encourage repetition.
Keep them in Close Proximity
Children feel more comfortable when someone they recognize is in close proximity to them, which is why placing your child in your lap, sitting next to them or on opposite sides is a good option. Your kindergartener will feel less nervous about reading if you’re near them physically and they enjoy your presence. If you remain in close proximity to your child, you can help them pronounce difficult words and use hand gestures to guide them if they get stuck on a particular sentence. Whether you’re helping a kindergartener learn to read or pick up another habit, proximity helps by making children feel more connected to you.
Read Aloud Together
You can start the book by reading the title with your kindergartener and asking them to repeat it for you. When you read aloud the first time, your kindergartener will repeat certain words; then they will repeat entire sentences and eventually, they will lead you through the book. It is your responsibility to make the activity feel fun and exciting, so take your time between reading different passages to let them soak in the new knowledge. Reading aloud may make your kindergartener nervous at first, but it helps diminish social anxiety in the long run. Plus, when you read aloud together, you take the immediate attention off the child and share the spotlight with them, enabling the child to become comfortable while reading.
