More About Evan-Moor Educational Publishers
Since 1979, Evan-Moor Educational Publishers has provided educators with practical, creative, and engaging PreK–8 materials to support and enrich the core curriculum.
We strive to produce educational materials that are aligned with current standards and best educational practices—and with student interests and motivations. We pride ourselves on our ability to create products that not only build and reinforce basic and complex skills, but that develop a curiosity about the subjects in which those skills are taught.
When teaching colleagues and friends Joy Evans and Jo Ellen Moore created their first handwritten book to motivate struggling students in their classroom, they had no idea that they were embarking on a very successful career in educational publishing.
In the 1970s, Joy and Jo Ellen were team teaching in a Title I school in California and developing their own supplemental resources to inspire students in their classroom to learn basic skills. After multiple rejection letters from publishers, Joy and Jo Ellen decided to independently publish their first six titles. Partnering with Joy’s brother, Bill Evans, the trio founded Evan-Moor Educational Publishers in 1979.
Joy and Jo Ellen taught the first few years while Bill practiced law. Bill and Joy’s parents, Olive and Earl, volunteered their garage as a warehouse and shipping facility. Olive and Earl also served as the first sales team, visiting local stores and book clubs—and eventually the grassroots efforts took off.
Today, Evan-Moor Educational Publishers operates with the same family spirit and enthusiasm that the company was founded on nearly 35 years ago. While Evan-Moor sadly said goodbye to Joy Evans in 2012, the passion and energy that Joy, Jo Ellen, and Bill infused into Evan-Moor has propelled the company to long-term success.
Joy and Jo Ellen’s inaugural, hand-crafted book has led to more than 500 titles, as well as digital resources, e-books, center kits, RTI resources, and an interactive learning platform for 1:1 learning models. And today, as in the early days, Evan-Moor continues to develop resources and technologies with a clear, unwavering focus on the goal of helping children learn.

Great Book! Feb 13, 2008
This book is GREAT. It's really helped me have my second graders actually break down and look at their sentences in a simple way. It's wonderful.
Expanding simple sentences with ease and humor Sep 8, 2007
I am a credentialed teacher who now tutors only. I bought this book primarily for ESL students who were learning to write in English. My three ESL students this past summer had very well-developed English vocabularies, but found it hard to put their ideas into English writing. Creating "Super Sentences" was a major help.
I also introduced the book to native English writers in grades 2-4. The book helped them see how they could easily vary their sentences by changing the position of some of the "formula" parts.
I then took the book one step further. After each lesson was finished, we cut and saved all of the suggested phrases in a personal reference book. I highly recommend the book to parents and teachers who are helping children grow beyond simple three word sentences.
Also, the book does flow well into the recommended partner, Fabulous Paragraphs.

just look at the sample Apr 17, 2007
This is a "formula" sentence book, and you can see the formula in the sample (there is only 1). At the back of the book, are center activities, which might make this the only reason you would purchase this book.
Worthwhile Purchase Jun 12, 2005
I purchased this book to use with second graders (many of whom are in the process of learning English). I have found the activities to be useful in assisting students in assembling grammatically correct extended sentences. The kids also have a great time coming up with funny sentence parts. This is a good book to purchase if you're looking for a short daily exercise to assist students with sentence construction.
