A while back I was looking for free printable reading comprehension worksheets for first graders, and I realized that I needed to sift through the online search results: Some of the sites required you to register, some of the sites offered free sheets but they weren’t what I was looking for. Below I have compiled a list of 6 sites, along with the number of free reading comprehension sheets for each site. All the sites satisfy the following criteria:
- Completely free — no need to buy anything.
- No need to register for the site.
- The sheets all have an article/poem for kids to read, and the kids then need to answer questions based on what they read.
- The sheets can be easily printed — on some site you may have to look around to find a way to print the sheets.

- Fountas & Pinnell
- Basal Level
- DRP (Degrees of Reading Power)
- Reading Recovery
- DRA Level
- Lexile Level
