solving more efficient. Attention to letter combinations and patterns
helps children to decode unknown words effectively and to decode by
analogy. Children receive explicit instruction in identifying the letter
combinations that appear on the Sound Buddies in words and in word
families. They are trained to use the strategy of looking for what they
know inside the word before sounding it out. Sound Buddies can also be
used for word sorts and are an excellent bulletin board display. Each set
of Sound Buddies includes 25 sounds organized in groups of 2, 3 and 4

Diary of a Wimpy Kid:
The Long Haul
A family road trip is supposed
to be a lot of fun ... unless, of
course, you’re the Heffleys.
The journey starts off full of
promise, then quickly takes
several wrong turns. Gas station
bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a
fender bender, and a runaway
pig - not exactly Greg Heffley’s
idea of a good time, but even the worst road trip can
turn into an adventure - and this is one the Heffleys
won’t soon forget.

As Greg says in his diary, “Just don’t expect me to be
all ‘Dear Diary’ this and ‘Dear Diary’ that”. Luckily for
us, what Greg Heffley says he won’t do and what he
actually does are two very different things.

Dewey the Document Camera Stand
Document Camera Position:
Dewey allows the iPad to work as a document camera. The projected
image can change from landscape to portrait, by rotating Dewey’s
head 90 degrees.
Microscope Position:
The Microscope function can used in all height settings and either
landscape or portrait Document Camera positions. Each lens
provides 5x magnification. They can be used individually or separately
depending on what specimen and the focal length needed. To save
images of what you have discovered, don’t forget to take a picture
using your camera function!
Stability:
Dewey’s base adds stability to the unit in all the different heights and
positions. The base with the rubber pads stops Dewey from sliding

For your convenience, all catalogue
prices are quoted in Canadian
dollars and do not include the cost
of transportation or any applicable
taxes. These charges will be added
to your invoice separately. Prices are
FOB Newmarket, Ontario.
SPECTRUM PRICE CHANGE POLICY
Because our suppliers sometimes
make significant price increases
during the life of our catalogue, we
must reserve the right to change
prices without notice. Wherever
possible, SPECTRUM/NASCO
Canada will absorb small increases
from suppliers but if there is a large
cost increase, we will notify you
before filling your order. In the rare
event of a typographical error, we
reserve the right to charge at the
correct price.
64
PST, GST, HST
All applicable provincial taxes will
be added to your order at the time
of invoicing. GST (or HST) will be
added to orders where applicable.
For your reference, our GST
number is R104958731.
SHIPMENTS: FOB NEWMARKET
All orders will be shipped in the most
economical manner (for parcels this
is generally UPS Ground) unless
otherwise specified by you the
customer. Shipments will be FOB
Newmarket, Ontario, and shipping
& handling charges will be added
to your invoice. A minimum $15.00
shipping charge will be applied to all
orders, so we would encourage you
to make sure your orders total more
than $50 before shipping charges.
When Spectrum ships to your
institution, arrangements normally
include delivery to your building’s
front door or loading dock. If the
shipping company’s assistance is
going to be required to carry the
parcels further into your building,
Spectrum must be informed in
advance and the additional handing
charges of the freight forwarder will
apply.
This logo on items in the
catalogue, indicates that additional
shipping charges apply.
BACK-ORDERS
Items not in stock at the time
of processing your order will be
shipped when available and invoiced
separately. Please note that
back-orders under $25.00 may be
canceled.
SPECTRUM GUARANTEE &
RETURN POLICIES
If within 30 days of receipt of your
order, for any reason you are not
completely satisfied with any one
of our products, simply call our
customer service department and
we will do everything we can to
make you happy with your purchase.
In the event that a returned order
has any packaging, manuals,
accessories, or other items missing,
the return may be refused, or we
may deduct the value of any of the
missing items. Due to copyright
laws, CDs, Software, DVDs and
videos in opened packaged may
only be exchanged for the same
item if original purchase is defective.
All returns must be authorized by
our Customer Service Department
(1-800-668-0600), which will provide
you with a Return Authorization
Number. Please (1) include our
invoice number, (2) indicate our
Return Authorization Number on
the outside of the package being
returned, and (3) indicate the
reason(s) for returning the goods.
For damaged shipments or errors
on our part, no restocking charge
will apply. On all other returns, a
15% restocking charge will apply.
Items with the part number starting
in “Z”, are considered special order
items and a 15% re-stocking charge
will apply on returns, unless the
item is defective in which case the
re-stocking charge will be waived.
MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY
SPECTRUM/NASCO Canada will
honour all manufacturer’s warranties
on products purchased from
SPECTRUM/NASCO Canada (proof
of purchase will be required).
DAMAGED GOODS/SHORTAGES
While our liability ceases after goods
are received in good condition by
the carrier, we will replace damaged
items. If the contents of your
delivered boxes are damaged, you
must notify the carrier to make a
claim for damages. It is important
to note any visible damage to your
shipment on the delivery carrier’s
receipt before the driver leaves. If
the damage is hidden, please call
the carrier immediately to report this.
Delays of 2 or 3 days can result in
the carrier refusing to pay claims for
hidden damage.
