Embrace the craziness of Halloween with these 4 original, high-interest Halloween reading comprehension passages! This is a great way for students to practice reading fiction, nonfiction, functional text, and poetry. This no-prep pack is perfect for 4th and 5th grade guided reading groups and October literacy stations!

Each text has 5-8 corresponding questions including TEI-like items, multiple-choice, and open response. They cover a range of skills such as summarizing details, making inferences, identifying the conflict, understanding author's purpose, and more. Word analysis questions are also included for each passage.

What's included:

  • nonfiction text: "Sick of the Sweets?"
  • functional text: "David's Crafts" ad

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 small groups with teacher support as needed.

This resource supports 2017 Reading SOL 4.4, 4.5, and 4.6.

This resource pairs nicely with my Halloween word analysis worksheets!
