Rob’s product, Word Trackers, supports reading fluency!

“They can use them for tracking, chunking, underlining, or pointing, four handy tools in one! And they fit discreetly in the palm of the hand.

  • Set Of 12 Durable Plastic Trackers: Made to last of durable plastic, these trackers have a round nub on the bottom that allows them to glide smoothly over the pages to guide students as they read.
  • 4 Tools In One Tracking Device: These handy little trackers have several functions. You get four tools in one: tracking, chunking, underlining, and pointing!
  • Support Reading Fluency: The unique design of this hand-held reading tool helps with tracking text and breaking it into manageable chunks. Its a great way to support early or struggling readers.
  • Doubles As A Fidget Spinner: When students arent using the tracker for reading, they can spin it to get rid of the fidgets. Its a quiet way to release anxiety or excess energy without disturbing classmates.

Give your young readers these multi-function reading tools that help with tracking, chunking, underlining, and pointing to text.” – Really Good Stuff

The Inspired Home Show has been Cancelled

“Dear Home + Housewares Professional,

By now, I am sure that you have heard that The Inspired Home Show 2020 has been cancelled due to the ongoing threat of Covid-19 (Coronavirus).  Being a global event, the health risk of having our international community come together next week was simply too great.

In the weeks leading up to the cancellation decision, the IHA Board of Directors and IHA staff watched the situation closely and listened to our industry’s constituents – members, exhibitors, retailers, distributors, reps and consultants.  Although some wanted to continue, the overwhelming majority asked (and many demanded) that we cancel the Show due to the Coronavirus threat.  By March 2, we were swept away by a tide of cancellations from both exhibitors and retailers that clearly made the most difficult decision ever made by IHA fairly easy – the Show simply couldn’t continue on as it had for more than 80 years.” – IHA

Why is Prototyping Important?
” A full design build is expensive, and it can be time-consuming. First, you build, then you look for any flaws and problems, figure out the solution, then rebuild with the updates. The process may repeat multiple times. Instead, rapid prototyping can be used for your initial prototype. This allows you to inexpensively build and test the parts of the design that are most likely to be flawed, solving issues on the front end, before you make the full product.” – LANPDT
