Embrace the craziness of Halloween in the classroom by giving your students this engaging set of original, high-interest Halloween reading passages and questions. This is a great way for students to practice reading fiction, nonfiction, functional text, and poetry, and answering corresponding questions. These are great to use with guided reading groups and in October literacy stations, or to save for your end-of-year test review!
Questions include TEI-like items, multiple choice, and open response. They cover a variety of reading and word analysis skills.
- "David's Crafts" advertisement with a 8-question worksheet
- "A Trick or a Treat?" fictional short story with a 8-question worksheet
- "Sick of the Sweets?" informational text article with a 8-question worksheet
- "Halloween Night" poem with a 5-question worksheet
- answer keys
Please read before purchasing: These passages are written approximately at a 4th-5th grade reading level. They are intended to be rigorous and may be challenging for students early in the year (particularly the article and poem). I recommend using these in the classroom and completing them in groups or partners with teacher support as needed.
This resource supports 2017 Reading SOL 4.4, 4.5, and 4.6.
