Asking and answering questions
Finding important details in text
Lots of informational text
If there is anything you have concerns about or anything that you feel needs to be added please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.
From what I have chosen for my packet, it shouldn't step on many toes as far as Halloween "religion" issues go. Lots of it is informational text such as the history of Halloween, spiders, bats, how to articles. There are some ghost stories and legends.
I also have a Halloween just for fun pack for $2.50.
