    If you've been wondering what to use for grammar alongside your IEW material, the problem is solved. Fix Its are passages from well-loved books – 132 per book to be precise. Working on 1 passage per day, students look for and correct embedded grammar errors and learn a new vocabulary word. As added reinforcement for the IEW methodology, students are also expected to identify Dress-Ups and Sentence Openers (part of the IEW writing style instruction). By using stories, students are exposed to great classic literature and become eager to read the originals. Because there is a continuing story line, the daily grammar edits become fun and entertaining as well as challenging. The 132-passage sets (a year's worth; 33 wks of 4 per week) come from 5 different stories each with a recommended grade level: Tom Sawyer (grades 3-6), Frog Prince, or Just Desserts (grades 4-8), The Little Mermaid (grades 6-9), The King and the Discommodious Pea (grades 7-10), and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (grades 9-12). Accordingly, this one book provides daily grammar edits for five years or for multi-age students. Each series of passages starts out with an introduction to both the grammatical content and the story as well as providing background information on the story and its author. Each student will need a dictionary. It's also assumed that the student and teacher will be familiar with either the Teaching Writing Structure & Style or the Student Writing Intensive seminars from IEW. However, the Fix It edits can be done as a stand-alone program. The Fix It manual is intended as a teacher resource. The passages to be edited are presented in parallel columns with the corrected version. These can be presented to students on a blackboard/whiteboard or as an overhead for a classroom situation or worked on paper for individual students. Student worksheets with the uncorrected sentences are available in e-book format on the IEW website (all access information is included in the Fix-It manual). The manual's appendix is extensive and includes IEW writing style techniques (Dress-Ups, Sentence Openers, and Advanced Style), reference guide for Grammar & Mechanics and Abbreviations, Proofreading Symbols, Samples of Student Work and In Class Teacher Corrections, and an Index. ~ Janice

    This manual delves into the wide variety of real-life skills young men will need as they move to life on their own in today's world. Guidance is given on personal care, social skills, food preparation, work and money management, sports how-to's, and vehicle and tool usage. Author Jonathan Catherman is an educational consultant and youth trainer specializing in character and leadership development, but he really focuses on practical skills in this book. His goal here is to help young men gain respect and avoid embarrassment.

    This self-help guide is divided into 10 chapters. Each starts with a two-page overview featuring tips from an expert in their field, then drills down to specific steps. Each step is only 2 or 3 sentences. Everything is to-the-point and clear. For instance, the Clothes & Style chapter starts with thoughts from Nate Retzlaff, an apparel design consultant who has worked with Nike, Adidas, Dakine, Reebok, X-Games, and ESPN, among others. Sections include how-to's like: Wash Laundry, Dry Laundry, Iron a Shirt, Iron Slacks, Shine Shoes, Tie a Tie, Sew on a Button, Treat a Stain, Fold a Shirt, Fold No-Pleat Pants, and Hang Slacks. The section on ironing a shirt breaks the process down into 9 clear steps.

    To make sure that he gets the reader's attention, the author starts out the book with a chapter on Women and Dating. Successive chapters include Social Skills and Manners, Work & Ethics, Wealth and Money Management, Grooming & Personal Hygiene, Clothes & Style, Sports & Recreation, Cars & Driving, Food & Cooking, and Tools and Fix-It. Every one of these chapters contains plenty of useful ideas that can be put into practice daily. Besides the easy-to-follow steps, each section ends with some expert advice.

    The author has obviously had plenty of experience working with young men, and distills his years of experience into this easy-to-follow guide. Let his experience be your guide.

    The tray holds nine pieces of chocolate. Each customer wants a different arrangement of chocolates, but the instructions on where to place each piece are incomplete. The challenge card tells you where to place the first few, but after that you have to figure out where the rest of the pieces go by using the standard placement rules for shapes and colors. There are 40 challenge cards in four difficulty levels, from beginner to expert. It is a single player game, but solutions are included if you're stumped... or if the lifelike chocolate pieces are distracting you!

      No, it's not an 8-sided clip; it's even cooler than that. Octa-clips would have been in frequent use if we'd had them when we were kids. The clips are used to connect cardboard or Coroplast™ together to design structures such as play houses, displays, puppet theaters, mazes, and more. The two-sided clip rotates around an octagonal post which allows you to clip and lock your structure at a variety of angles. The green clips surround a round post which provides a hinge structure for opening doors and windows. Get your structures together with Octa-clips! ~ Megan

    What do you do if you can't fix a broken doughnut making machine with tons of batter inside? What do you do after there are more than a thousand doughnuts and they just keep coming? What do you do if a rich lady has lost her diamond bracelet and it is inside of one of the doughnuts? If you're Homer Price, then your uncle has left you alone in the middle of this crisis and you have to find a way out of it! But that won't be a problem, because he's handled a skunk, four bank robbers, a 6' ball of string, and helped 100 families find their homes in the new subdivision where all 100 houses look exactly alike. - Melissa

    Make learning geography fun with this large inflatable globe that is great to use in a variety of activities. The globe is made from vinyl plastic so after it's inflated, it becomes a durable ball that's great to throw around. The globe is 27" in diameter and the oceans are clear so the globe is basically see-through. The different continents are shown in different bold colors, but the individual borders of countries/states are not shown. There are latitude and longitude lines on the globe, but absolutely nothing in labeled. Luckily, you can use standard wet-erase markers (not included) to label the globe as you see fit and then clean it off with a damp cloth and start over again! A hook and string are included so it's possible to hang the globe from the ceiling and a repair kit makes it easy to fix leaks in the globe (which are hard to come by). A small sheet of activity ideas is included. ~ Rachel
