Halloween Reading Passages with Comprehension Questions
Engage your students in reading workshop this October with this set of 4 Halloween reading comprehension passages! This no-prep pack is a fantastic way for your students to review reading strategies for nonfiction, functional text, fiction, and poetry. Use for Halloween reading activities in October or save for spring test prep!
Each text includes 5-8 standards-based questions (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.
nonfiction text: "Sick of the Sweets?"
functional text: "David's Crafts" ad
fiction: "A Trick or a Treat?"
poem: "Halloween Night"
These passages work well for reading groups, independent practice, homework assignments, test prep, and even assessment. They are intended to provide rigorous practice; some students may benefit from having small group support.
"The reading passages were very interesting for my students to read. They enjoyed reading them and the questions helped them to comprehend and dig a little deeper into the passages." - Amy B.
