Reading comprehension: dialects

Grade 5 | Reading

Does this text sound funny? That's because it's written in a dialect, which is a variation on the English you usually speak. This language arts worksheet helps children learn the difference between a dialect and standard English and to recognize the style of an individual writer as they read, compare, and contrast two texts.

This worksheet originally published in English Made Easy Key Stage 2 for ages 10 to 11 by © Dorling Kindersley Limited.

Skills: reading comprehension, fluency, compare and contrast, understanding writer's style and voice, dialect, sentence-level decoding, building vocabulary, synonyms, writing practice
