Free Wrinkle in Time Reading Comprehension Worksheets

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle is one of my favorite books. I read it numerous times as a child and as an adult, I continue to reread it, sometimes with my daughter and sometimes on my own. While this book takes on the neverending fight between “good vs. evil”, it speaks to the power of love while also recognizing the importance of intelligence and individuality. The first in this quintet from the author, A Wrinkle in Time is fun to read and great to teach!

With the movie opening recently, I wanted to share these worksheets as a way to bring Hollywood into the Classroom. While seeing the movie is not a requirement for using them, these Wrinkle in Time reading comprehension worksheets will provide teachers and parents with the tools they need to guide comprehension of the story.
