GREAT VALUE! This reading lesson contains a complete guided reading worksheet with 68 questions (with answer key) for the middle school version of the short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. This worksheet goes along with the Middle School reading of the story. I have included a copy of this story in the download. Also, if you want to verify the version before you make your purchase, please check out the FREE PREVIEW to see the story. Questions consist of True and False, multiple choice, fill in the blank and short answer. Answer key included.

It will take about 60-75 minutes for the students to complete the 68 question worksheet (depending on the student).

This is a classic story of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman.

NOTE: There are many different versions of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This worksheet goes with the middle school version of the story. I have included it with the download in case you need it. I have also placed the first few pages of the story in the free preview for you to see.

FREE PREVIEW: Includes the first 10 questions with answer key, AND the first few pages of the short story for you to preview.
The entire short story is included in the download.

This 68 question worksheet is designed with cost effective photocopying in mind. This is a two page worksheet that can be combined to a front/back copy using only 1 sheet of paper. No staples.

The worksheet is 2 pages, answer key is 2 pages, short story is 9 pages long for a total of 13 pages.

As a public school English teacher, the biggest challenge I have is getting students to read in class or at home. Put a book or short story in front of them, they'll look at it for a few seconds and start day dreaming... THEY DON'T FOCUS!

Until I stumbled upon something magnificent. Teenagers like accomplishment. These worksheets ask questions while the reader reads. Every couple of sentences, there's another question in true or false, fill in the blank, define, multiple choice formats. As the student reads, boom, another question. They answer it and continue reading. Before you know it, they have finished reading the story and completed all questions for further lessons/discussions.

These worksheets are great for daily lessons, test/quiz grades, extra credit, homework, group work (in pairs of two), substitute teacher lessons, emergency lesson plans, great for ESOL or however you can imagine.

FREE COMPLETE SAMPLE WITH KEY PROVIDED FOR "THE MAN TO SEND RAIN CLOUDS". Just search my other downloads for the free full lesson. If you like the full free sample, you will love this one!

This lesson is meant to help students focus on the reading while answering simple questions to keep them on track and focused. (check out my feedback for outstanding results).
