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.
Reviews - What do customers think about Daily Language Review, Grade 5?
Good tool for skill improvements Jan 9, 2009
I utilized this work book to help my child strengthen language arts skills. The work book is easy to follow and the 5-day format was particularly helpful for a daily practice session. The questions were straight forward and did not require hours to complete. This was a definite plus when your child comes in from hours at school and really doesn't want EXTRA homework.
Great 4 Daily Grammar Review Oct 31, 2008
This is a great daily grammar review book I use with my 5th graders daily. They take a test on the items covered on Friday.
Will often have to spend a lot of time... Jun 21, 2006
I used this for part of the year last year and while the concept is good, I felt almost everyday I had to spend a lot of time explaining questions on the sheet that they had never seen before. The skills are random (which is the point) but you will definitely need to teach some of them that day, as oftentimes they have not learned certain skills yet. This would end up being a large part of your language arts program.
The kids would get very frustrated doing these on some days from not knowing what some concepts were. Prepare to spend a lot of time teaching the skills everyday.
Terrific Daily Practice Builds Skills Jul 2, 2005
I have used the Daily Language Program, (or as my students call it "DLR"), for several years. It takes about 15 - 20 minutes to do, and the results are remarkable. I highly recommend this book to supplement any language arts curriculum.
Daily Language Review books are a must for any teacher! Sep 4, 2000
I have taught 3rd, 5th and 6th grades and will never teach without a DLR book again. They are simple and easy to use in the classroom, but also provide wonderful skills for students. They go beyond the traditional DOL skills and teach more skills that students need to know. These books are set up so that they can be completed in just a small amount of time but you will see a huge improvement in your students.
