Reading & Writing Online Exercises

Reading and writing are some of the most important skills your child will ever learn. Help them perfect them with our reading and writing exercises. We have quizzes that cover it all: Parts of speech, subject-verb agreement, types of sentences, and lots, lots more. Try them all, or focus on specific topics like proper nouns in our other excercise collections.
Is your child a human calculator, but not so hot in language arts? Help them build skills (and build confidence) in ELA with Education.com's online reading and writing exercises. Across the elementary school grade levels, kids cover quite a lot -- they start with simple letter learning, and by the time they're through, they're working on more complicated ideas like metaphors and past participles. No matter what grade level your student is currently at, we've got everything you need to take on reading and writing practice for all grade levels -- everything from parts of speech on up to sentence structure and onomatopoeias. Our exercises are a fun digital addition to plain old pencil and paper learning, and come in many formats, like mix and match or multiple choice, to cater to a range of learning styles. If they get worn out on reading and writing, they can try math next, or start our ELA series all over again!
