Hello! I attempted to download this study guide (looks wonderful!) - but it seems only the cover downloaded. Any suggestions? Thanks!

In reference to Jenn1221's question - for students with disability - BookShare.org is the way to go for free digital materials that can be used with free screen reading software.

On  May 22, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Hi! I was wondering if you could please clarify the difference between the three James and the Giant Peach products you have listed. The reading activities (common core), the super bundle and the reading comprehension guide (free item) How many activities are repeated of the three and which do you feel would be most appropriate for an independent literature study of this novel for incoming 4th graders? Thank you.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 25, 2012Wise Guys answered:
Hi, The reading comprehension guide is great for a novel unit on the story. The super bundle is more in depth which includes: A character profile activity
End of novel project choices
A game board with questions
A social networking activity
A text messaging activity
A word study with definitions
A vocabulary puzzle
A comprehension quiz

So it has more activities then just the comprehension guide.
