12-year-old Rob Horton has recently moved with his father to a motel in Lister, Florida. Ever since his mother's death, Rob has shut up his feelings in a big "suitcase" and clamped it down tight. He is determined that nothing will make him cry again--not the bullies who torment him at his new school, not the ugly rash on his legs, and especially not missing his mother, whom he is very skilled at not-thinking about. But then two extraordinary things happen: Rob discovers a real-life tiger, pacing back and forth in a cage near the motel where he lives. On that same day, he meets Sistine Bailey�

On  February 29, 2012Comprehension Connection (TpT Seller) said:
One suggestion you might consider is leaving more space between the Extending Text prompt and the next question or activity. I helped my daughter with the James and the Giant Peach unit. Her teacher wanted the students to respond, but there was no room.

If you read the box carefully, it says to think about the answer, but not to write it down.

Product Questions & Answers

On  November 14, 2013Comprehension Connection (TpT Seller) asked:
I purchased this a while back, and when I opened it at school, all of the clip art and print have shifted. Is it possible to save this as a pdf so that the graphics and print don't move if the buyer does not happen to have the font you selected on the computer it was opened on? I believe that'd fix my struggle. Thanks.
