Students really start coming into their own during the 5th grade. They are developing their personalities and identities. More importantly, they are developing their reading skills. This page ought to help with that. It has all of the worksheets that I've written at the 5th grade level. I used this great site to determine the readability scores of these worksheets, but you should read and approve each of them yourself for quality and appropriateness before giving them to your students. There are many different formulas that one can use to determine the readability score of a text, and the scores that they produce vary quite a bit. I'm using an average of five different scores for these texts. For a better selection of appropriate texts for your 5th grade students, I encourage you to allow texts written two grade levels above and below by clicking the button beneath this text.

FREE Grade 5 Reading and Writing Worksheets

We have 5 sets of free grade five reading and writing worksheets for free download below. These are full sets of resources to help grade 5 students (or other grades depending on reading levels) to practice some of the common core literacy skills needed at this grade. They come with tasks and activities included.

These Grade 5 worksheets include the reading passages needed to complete the task meaning they can be used as a stand alone activity or resource and there is no need for additional resources. As they are printable they can be laminated and used repeatedly.

We have five sets of grade five reading and writing worksheets here . the titles are listed below. You can click on the Title to jump to the relevant worksheet set.

Grade 5 Reading and Writing: A Haunted House

Grade 5 reading Worksheets

This Grade 5 reading resource includes a short story about a girl and her class who find an old run down house and decide to go inside to explore. It has a both a simple true and false set of questions and a set of comprehension questions to go along with the story.

Proofreading worksheet grade 5

It then asks students to brainstorm and discuss with their classmates and teacher to come up with the outline of their own haunted house story. Once completed they can try to write their own short story on the worksheet included. This can be used as both a process writing or free writing exercise.

If using these grade 5 reading and writing worksheets in process writing then proofreading plays a large part of that process. Proofreading is a skill that is valuable throughout a students school years. , and the exercise included is a simple introduction to the skills needed to develop proofreading abilities.

Also in Grade 5 students should be developing and expanding their vocabulary , especially with adjectives. We have a simple picture to vocabulary exercise within these grade 5 reading and writing worksheets to help with this on page 3.

As well as adjectives, Adverbs should be being introduced in Grade 5 and 6 . There is a sentence construction exercise included that asks students to write a sentence but include an adverb in each one.

Grade 5 Reading and Writing: The Stupid Crocodile

Grade 5 Reading Comprehension Worksheets – A Stupid crocodile

This grade 5 reading and writing worksheet is a levelled spin on a Aesop fable. We have called it the Stupid Crocodile. it has a short story about a deer and crocodile and has a focus of teaching adjectives and sentence construction to grade 5 students.

The first post-story task asks students to identify the adjectives for the word cloud (we also have worksheets aimed at grade 5 for both adverbs and adjectives if needed on the links) and a reading comprehension task which is designed to be be fairly simple.

Proofreading worksheet grade 5

Where other grade 5 reading and writing worksheets in our collection have a strong focus on the writing aspects, we have made this set a little simpler. We do have a guided writing exercise but it is heavily scaffolded with example texts and keywords included.

However, the more difficult task is the proof reading exercise on page 4 of these reading and writing worksheets set. Although it will be a vital skill later on in school, at grade 5 proofreading is a relatively new concept. We have included examples of what to look for but there will still need to be some teaching of this concept at this school grade level. There are 10 errors on the text, and in case you are new to teaching proofreading we have a tip below 🙂

Proofreading Tip: Reading aloud makes it easier to spot mistakes in texts, when we read in our head our brains often act like auto correct on your phones, and we skip over the mistakes without seeing them.

We finish the set with one last guided reading exercise ( just 100 words) with some tips and ideas above to help. One idea, if your class is of a level is to make each student a teacher and give them each others work to mark and correct. however, for this exercise we would encourage students to leave out their names to avoid embarrassment. You can use a numbering system if you wanted to .

Grade 5 Writing: A Letter of Complaint

Grade 5 Writing worksheet complaint letter

Letter writing has been introduced in basic forms since grade 3, however from grade 4 onwards it becomes more focussed. Different text types are introduced included formal letters. Commonly students will be asked to write a letter of complaint. We have a set of grade 5 reading and writing worksheets that cover this in detail here.

Proofreading worksheet grade 5

There is a background story discussing the reasons why the Lee family are writing letters of complaint , and it follows up with a reading comprehension exercise and a set of comprehension questions.

We then include a page of guided writing, it asked grade 5 students to write one of the letters of complaint within the short story and includes key words to help them . This is a scaffolded activity if your students need it, as the next writing exercise is a free writing tasks.

The larger writing task can be used as a free or process writing exercise and asks students to think of an issue in their home or school that they want to complain about ( hopefully not the teacher!) This can be discussed as a whole class if needed, or students can write individual letters that could then be presented to the class or put up as a display in the classroom.

The final task is another sentence construction exercise using a mixture of more complex vocabulary.

Grade 5 Reading and Writing: The Lizard and Sparrow

Grade 5 reading and writing

This set of grade 5 reading and writing worksheets is another spin on a famous Aesop fable called the grasshopper and the ant. If your fifth graders are of a higher reading level you could also include the real story in the lesson and we have included some options for writing with different pairs of animals to show you how that could be implemented as well.

The story is fairly simple and covers the ‘ ‘morals” of teamwork, honesty revenge, and planning. Although you can choose your own focus, or even ask students what they think the moral of the story is.

As with the other grade 5 reading and writing worksheets on this page we also have a true and false comprehension exercise, and more difficult reading compression set of questions , some of which look for a little empathy and higher order thinking in their answers.

Reading and Writing Grade 5

We also ask students to think a little about the grammar involved in the story with a quick adjective exercise and an antonym exercise (although we don’t use the grammar term) , you could introduce as the task as opposites)

This exercise asks students to finish a story using some of the words we have given (and some of their own) once completed it should have the opposite meaning to the original.

The final task is a little more tricky for grade 5 students. it doesn’t deal in the absolutes that so many stories at this level do it needs a little nuance and thought to be applied. Instead of sharing or not sharing food, the beetle and the ant work together occasionally, or sometimes, or now and then…

However if this is too much for your students, or you don’t like the idea, the words at the top can be used just as a suggestion and they can use the writing exercise to write their own version using the two previous versions as a template or as guidance.

Grade 5 Reading and Writing: Mid Autumn Festival

mid autumn festival reading and writing worksheet

I was based for a significant amount of my teaching career in Hong kong, so indulge me for trying to share a little of the culture of the place. This set of five grade 5 reading and writing worksheets cover some of the traditions, history and customs around this Asian celebration.

mid autumn festival reading and writing worksheet

The reading passage covers the mythology behind the mid autumn festival and the story of the God and Goddess of heaven Chang-Er and Hou Yi. The reading has been levelled so a fifth grader should be ok with it, and it comes with True and False Questions, and some more complicated reading comprehension questions following that.

Then these grade 5 writing worksheets asks students to read a short passage about a family activity on Mid Autumn, and then use that as a guide to write about another family. They have both the guide passage and a word bank to help them. (may be useful if the students have no idea what Mid Autumn festival is! )

Following on from this we have included a grade 5 free writing activity . They still have their guide and key words from the previous task but this asks them to describe what they do ( or would do) at Mid Autumn with their family.

The worksheets finish with a sentence construction activity and some simple vocab they should have learnt from the worksheet set.

Grade 5 Common Core Literacy Skills: Overview

There are websites entirely dedicated to the common core standards for grade 5 , so i don’t want to reinvent the wheel with these, however we have a table below to help with fitting these grade 5 reading and writing worksheets into the common core standards, and a mini description of what they are . We have chosen the most relevant of the common cores literacy standards for grade 5 here,

However if you want detailed information on the common core literacy standards they you can check out here for the official site. we have taken 5 of the more common core standards and cross referenced them here.

Editing your paper or books allows you to make your ideas and messages as clear as possible to your readers. It will help you get rid of typos, poor sentence structure, incorrect verb tenses, and more.

Do you want to enhance your editing skills? I love using editing sheets and recommend them to aspiring writers all the time. Check out our collection of printable sentence and paragraph editing worksheets. These worksheets are excellent for practicing common grammar rules and style guidelines.

What is an Editing Worksheet?

An editing worksheet is a paper or a collection of pre-made digital activities containing editing exercises. I’ve found a few online that works for me, but I’ve also made up some of my own over the years that are more specific to my styles.

Some editing worksheets are in the form of a paragraph essay for a real editing experience of manuscripts. Others contain numbered items that help learners acquire practice with grammar quizzes.

The goal of editing worksheets is to allow aspiring writers and editors to master the art of editing. This may include honing their punctuation skills, grammar abilities, and style skills.

With that being said, as a writer, I would still strongly recommend you hire an editor even after you’ve self-edited using these tips and worksheets.

Editing worksheets also encourage students to spot typing mistakes like repeated words, double spacing, and inconsistent formatting. Other editing aspects include sentence clarity, correct capitalization, and logical flow.

How Do You Practice Writing and Editing?

Writing then editing is a time-consuming process, but it gives you a chance to perfect your text. Here are some tips for practicing editing that I use for my own work.

Take your grammar skills to the next level

Have Someone Read Your Work

The peer review process will allow a fresh pair of eyes to review the descriptive details of your entire paragraph. They will spot errors you won’t, such as grammatical mistakes, typos, and poor argumentation.

proofreading worksheets grade 5

Several people read over my work, so I get different sets of eyes and perspectives.

Practice the Basics

Practice capitalization rules, spelling guidelines, and the most basic grammar rules before learning complex editing skills. It’s a valuable skill you’ll be able to apply in all pieces of writing, whether academic writing or novel.

After you know the basics, you can write and edit proper sentences. You will be editing for capitalization, grammar, and punctuation errors. Then, you’re ready to enhance your vocabulary skills and add compelling details to your work.

Answer Paragraph and Sentence Worksheets

Self-grading grammar quizzes allow you to know what it’s like to be an actual editor. They will help you practice the steps to editing.

First, you need to read over the page several times. Then, read for grammar and punctuation. Before heading to the details, you also need to start with the big picture. Some questions to ask include:

  • What is the author’s main point?
  • Do the main points have supporting details?
  • Is the document easy to understand?
  • Are there errors in spelling, grammar, style, and punctuation?
  • Does the paper follow proper formatting?

Editing Worksheets

Here are free printable worksheets you can answer with answer keys to give you some editing practice,

Sentence Editing Worksheets

Reviewing every sentence in a paragraph is essential for correctness. This editing process entails spotting spelling mistakes, punctuation errors, grammatical errors, and poor sentence structure.

Punctuation errors are common among improper use of question marks, quotation marks, commas, colons, and exclamation marks. Many people also get confused about the use of different dashes.

You might also encounter run-on sentences, comma splices, and the passive voice in sentences.

Lastly, don’t forget to capitalize proper nouns and the beginning of every sentence.

Revise and Edit Worksheets

Revising involves comprehensive sentence and paragraph rewrites. It focuses on content, organization, and structure of the entire piece of writing.

For instance, if you are revising, you must ensure you have complete sentences. Change your main ideas, add information, move paragraphs around, and more.

Editing focuses on the small details or every type of error. It checks individual sentences for incomplete or run-on sentences, incorrect punctuation marks, and improper spelling.

Other common mistakes include wrong verb tenses, capitalization issues, and homophone errors.

Paragraph Editing Worksheets

Editing goes beyond proofreading abilities , such as knowledge of writing conventions, editing marks, and proofreading skills. You also need to understand the whole writing process while adhering to a style guide and following a smooth flow.

This is how editing and proofreading differ. While proofreading focuses on basic errors in single sentences and words, editing is more about your paper’s overall structure and content.

Checking content for errors in spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation is part of proofreading. But bad errors like a poor structure of an entire paragraph and illogical sequences are part of editing.

Turning informal text pieces into formal and professional ones is also part of editing.

Here’s a paragraph checklist that will help you with proofreading paragraphs:

  • Overall structure.
  • Structure within paragraphs.
  • Writing style.

Once you know how to edit and proofread, the publishing process will be easier.

Grammar Editing Worksheets

Learning how to check grammar errors is an essential aspect of editing and proofing skills. Grammar does not include capitalization corrections and correct punctuation marks. Instead, here’s a list of mistakes to look for that are related to grammar.

  • Word order.
  • Connectors.
  • Parts of speech.
  • Tense and aspect.
  • Determiners.

Another critical skill in grammar is understanding syntax. When editing, ensure you know the parts of a sentence to make the revised sentence sound better. Phrases, clauses, and sentence structure are other syntax elements essential in paragraph editing.

Punctuation Editing Worksheets

Editing and proofreading paragraphs include checking for different kinds of errors related to punctuation. The process is tedious because you have to look for missing speech marks, incorrect use of apostrophes and speech marks, and missing commas.

It would help if you also corrected mistakes regarding excess exclamation, hyphens and dashes, and semicolons and colons. Sentence fragments do not require a period in the end because they do not express a complete thought.

This printable worksheet contains simple sentence items that require correct punctuation.

Enhance Your Editing Skills Now!

Editing gives you a chance to fix your document for correctness, clarity, and coherence. It will help you remove distractions in grammar, structure, and vocabulary.

I hope these sentence and paragraph editing worksheets help you practice how to revise and edit papers. Enhance your spelling, grammar, and style guidelines with these five printable activities.

Learn to edit and revise work is as demanding as learning to be good writer, ask an editor of any publication in digital form or print. We often start by reviewing our own work. I would argue it is best to start by editing the work of others. When we reread our own work, we hear what we intended to write, not what is actually written on the page. Peer editing is a great way to promote this task in your classroom. When begin editing work you will learn better uses of grammar and mechanics. We encourage you to start by reading your work out loud. This will help you easily pinpoint errors and mistakes. These worksheets will help you kick off your proofreading career in a positive manner.

Proofreading Worksheets To Print:

Identifying Proofreading Marks - Pencils work great with this one. Match the proofreading marks with their meanings.

Proofreading for Homophones - You can really think of this one as a spelling worksheet . Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings.

Punctuation Matching - Find those marks that match it all up for you. Something is missing within or at the end of each sentence.

Can You Spot the Errors? - There are a couple of loose spaces in there. Read the paragraph and circle the best option for each numbered section.

Always Check Before You Hit Send! - Grandma sent you a letter. She didn't reread her letter before sending, so now you have to decode it to find out what she wrote.

Spell it Right! - Underline all the spelling errors in the paragraph below. Be careful; some words may be spelled correctly, but it could be the wrong spelling for that context.

Fixing Punctuation Errors - This paragraph is littered with punctuation errors. Circle all the punctuation errors in the paragraph.

Proofreading Bios - Each bio has a few grammatical errors. Rewrite the two mini bios so that they are error free.

Finding Mistakes in Each Other's Writing - Write a short story and purposefully make 5 writing mistakes.

Explain the Errors - Circle the error in each sentence. Explain why it is incorrect and how to fix it.

Did June Spell That Correctly? - June wrote a story, but she is a terrible speller. For each numbered word, identify whether or not it is spelled correctly.

Proofreading Partners - Write a short story in the space provided. Switch papers with a partner.

Sentence-by-Sentence Proofreading - Circle the error in each sentence, and rewrite the sentence on the line.

Fill-in-the-Blank Punctuation - This paragraph is missing some of its punctuation! Fill in each blank with the correct punctuation.

Choose the Best Answer - Read each sentence and circle the letter that explains how to fix the error in the sentence.

More Related Worksheet Topics:

Revising and Editing Writing - Take your own writing and learn to make it step up. This is often difficult because we read it back to ourselves in the manner we meant to read it in.

Revising, Editing, and Rewriting - This helps put it all together. A nice solid review of all the skills we need to perform this well.

Writing Process - This actually provides you a checklist to follow through the entire process.

How to Proofread?

Proofreading means to read a piece of content to detect for general writing errors, grammatical mistakes, and spelling errors so that you can make sure that the final piece of writing is accurate and correct in all aspects. Proofreading is the last step of the writing process and must be completed carefully. Professional writers proofread their document so that their final document is well written, precise, and easy to read. Students do know how to write an assignment and other literary work but do not know how to proofread it. Proofreading is not an easy process but with a little bit of practice, it becomes easier. Given below are some tips that help one a lot to proofread the document efficiently and easily:

Reading Carefully

Careful reading is a key tool for proofreading. Read every word carefully to make sure that your work is free of errors. Look for spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and punctuation mistakes.

Look for One Problem at One Time

If you are a beginner in proofreading, then proofread for one type of problem at one time. For example, in the first sitting, look for spelling mistakes only and in second sitting, look for grammatical errors. This technique will help to stay focused while proofreading your document.

Use Computer Software

With the advancement of technology, many different forms of proofreading software is available. When you are done proofreading manually, it might be a good idea to use software to double check. I find that most people get in the habit of going over the errors detected by the software and then manually editing it. I find the reverse to be much more rewarding. Use a spelling checker and other grammatical software to make your final piece of writing accurate in all aspects. The best known software at this time is called Grammarly and they have a pretty extensive free app.

Ask Someone to Proofread

Ask an honest friend to reread the content for you. Ask for the pattern that is confusing him or her, spelling mistakes that you may have ignored, and other errors. Ask for his or her advice regarding how can you further improve your document and try to consider his advice.
