Students will apply new grammar knowledge and practice their editing skills with the Fix it! series from the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW). Fix It: Grammar, The Nose Tree is the first set of books in a series of six (all books sold individually); books build skills progressively and it's recommended that students complete the books in order.
This student book requires students to work in a 4-section notebook obtained separately. Weeks begin with a "Learn It" section that explains what they'll be looking for; the grammar cards in the back are used in conjunction with this portion of the lesson.
Each day includes the same set of tasks; students read a sentence and look up the bolded word in a dictionary to decide the proper definition. On Day 1, students and teachers work together to help the student mark and fix the first sentence with a rewrite. On Days 2-4 students use abbreviations to mark the sentence by themselves. Finally, after marking, correcting, and discussing the sentences with a teacher, students copy the corrected full passage into a separate notebook so that they end up with a handwritten copy of the complete story.
The back of the book contains a section of grammar cards designed to be cut out and viewed with the "Learn It" section for the week. In addition, there is a separate glossary section that covers parts of speech; se ntences/clauses/phrases; punctuation; additional rules and concepts; and stylistic techniques such as "dress-ups." Student pages cover 69 pages; the glossary is 45 pages in the same book. Spiral bound. 3rd Edition. Can be used with grades 3-12. Teacher Guide sold separately.

Heather5 Stars Out Of 5FANTASTICOctober 2, 2014HeatherI highly, highly recommend this Fix It! Grammar Student Book! I currently use it as our grammar for home school for my 3rd and 4th grade daughters. Each day there is one sentence to identify parts of speech (add one part of speech per week), one vocabulary word to define, and finally, the girls rewrite the sentence with correct punctuation. At the end of the school year, they will have learned parts of speech, been exposed to quality writing, learned correct punctuation, and rewritten the entire story, The Nose Tree. This is expertly laid out-we spend about 10 minutes per day on grammar; it is perfect for our family, as I don't need grammar to be a "heavy" subject. My girls enjoy this series- HIGHLY recommend!
