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.
