Hello,

I apologize for the inconvenience! I emailed you a link that will allow you to access all of the files! I'm not quite sure why you are asked for a conversion code. If you follow the link that I emailed to you, you will be able to find all of the materials in an unzipped format.

Justin

On  August 26, 2010,  Buyer asked:
re: "Seventh Grade": I don't agree with the answer you provide as to why Victor wants to take French. At the very beginning, Victor states he thinks he might visit France one day and describes what he thinks about France. He also all ready knows English and Spanish. Teresa being in the class is more of a bonus reason, not the main reason stated by Soto in the story. I know the publisher of our lit book states the reason is Teresa as you do, but I disagree, and when I teach it I state Teresa is the secondary or bonus reason.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 26, 2010Quality Teaching Products answered:
Thank you for the insight! Victor does state that! When creating the keys, I purposely made them fillable .pdf forms so that you can add your own insights to them. Thanks for the comment.
