Getting Started with Fix It! Grammar

Dec 29, 2023 | Posted by the IEW Blog Team

On Day 4 of IEW’s Twelve Days of Christmas Giving, IEW is giving the perfect gift for helping new and veteran IEW families and teachers tackle the often-daunting task of implementing grammar with their students. Be sure you are registered for the event to receive the email with links to the gifts and the free shipping code.

Fix It! Grammar encourages students to apply grammar concepts on the very first day. Your students will learn to immediately apply their grammar knowledge in context, which aids in the transfer of grammar skills into their own writing assignments. To get you started, we have gifts focused on applying grammar concepts directly to writing assignments.

The first gift on Day 4 is a link to the first four lessons of the first four levels of Fix It! Grammar so you can “test drive” our program before you purchase it! This link gives you access to help students get started with Fix It! Grammar. Access the free grammar lessons here!

Next, many parents feel inadequate to teach grammar to their students since they lack confidence in their own grammar knowledge. Andrew Pudewa demystifies the subject of grammar in his powerful talk But . . . but . . . but . . . What about Grammar? He addresses the dilemma of teaching grammar to your students especially if you do not feel confident in this subject.

Hold on to your Santa hat! We have another great resource for you on Day 4! Our mission at IEW is to equip teachers and teaching parents with methods and materials which will aid you in training your students to become confident and competent communicators and thinkers. Listen to the Arts of Language podcast episode “How Much Grammar Is Enough?” (Episode 389) in which Andrew Pudewa and Julie Walker discuss the value of applied grammar in the Fix It! Grammar program. Parents and teachers learn to go beyond asking students to simply memorize grammar facts. Instead they learn to train students to apply that knowledge through editing a passage each day.

Lastly, we are providing the link to the Fix It! Grammar overview page. You will find additional information including videos about our grammar program, course descriptions for each level, and teacher and student samples.
