What educators are saying

Excellent resource! My 7th and 8th grade boys are learning Spanish at home and had a blast with this. They also retained quite a bit of the vocabulary:)


Spanish 1 Reading - Halloween

Simple Reading Activities in Spanish about Halloween (Noche de Brujas) for lower level Spanish students (Spanish 1).

All texts are short with between 2 and 3 sentences written in the Simple Present Tense. The rest of the page has simple comprehension questions to check understanding.

There is a story about a witch called Aleja, another about a naughty pumpkin and another about the monsters' party. You will also find a story about a Bat called Murci and finally another story about Grandparents celebrating Halloween.

These worksheets should only take 10-15 minutes each so are a great item to warm up a class or to end the day. You could do a worksheet every day (lasting a school week) or leave them as homework.

These reading passages would be great in an emergency as a quick filler and you may also find them useful to hand out to fast finishers (so they don’t disrupt others).

We have two versions of each worksheet. One version with a picture about the reading passage, the other is the same text and activities but without the picture. Ideally this second version would be for younger students since each one has a space where they need to draw (and correctly color) something that is mentioned in the text.

All reading texts, questions and instructions are 100% in Spanish making it ideal for language immersion classrooms.

Bonus Listening Activity

We have now included a sheet with the 5 stories on one page (without exercises). This is can be used where the teacher gives the comprehension questions orally, or can be used in conjunction with the audio on our YouTube channel so they can read as they listen (without the distraction of other activities on the page).

There is another sheet with the 5 stories on one page, but this time with certain words missing and replaced by a blank line where students can fill with the word they hear on the listening.

Note: The audio of the listening only appears on our YouTube channel.

The recording is spoken by a native Spanish speaker.

Here is the audio that accompanies the short stories. It will also give you an idea of the content and level of these short reading passages:
