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 Math Practice, Grade 1?
Great foundational book for homeschoolers Dec 15, 2008
I am happy with the structure and content of this workbook and all the other grade level books by this publisher; I used them in first and second grade with my son and plan to do the same with my daughter. I piece together my curriculum from lots of different sources, using this publisher as my primary source for geography, math, spelling and language.
Good Choice for Beginning Math Problems - a review of "Daily Math Practie, Grade 1" Mar 22, 2007
I really like this workbook. It is not one of those that's in color, but the layout is simple and clear without a lot of distraction, which is something that not all of the books in this category can claim.
The idea is that you do 5 problems per session, with a small quiz at the end of five sessions to make sure the information 'stuck'. We have found (and I'm now starting this book with my second child) that 5 problems are so easy and fun that we sometimes do more than one unit a day.
Besides the clear format, the other aspect of this book that I like is that the problems aren't all presented in the same format. For example, right off the bat, they have horizontal arithmetic problems along with a word problems and pictorial problems.
A horizontal problem: 3 + 1 = ____
Word problem : Tom has one ball. He buys one more. How many does he have in all?
Picture problem: Well can't paste a picture, but here's an example: The picture will show four pennies and the question will be "How much?"
Four Stars. We have found this an excellent workbook that can be easily understand. Five problems at a time is generally not too much, even for active children like mine. This book however is ONLY a workbook with exercise problems. Parents and others looking for HOW to teach math book will have to look elsewhere. May I suggest "Math for Your 1st and 2nd Grader" by Steve Slavin. Math for Your First- and Second-Grader: All You Need to Know to Be Your Child's Best Teacher
Money well spent on this book! Mar 13, 2007
I am so glad that we found this book! Five problems a night makes math FUN, rather than WORK for my child. So much so that he will do a few days worth of problems in one sitting.
The book has variety to keep him interested, and he's learning new skills from it also. I will definitely buy the grade 2 book for next year.
practice is the key May 7, 2005
I'm a firm believer of practice early on math. It will build kid's interest and confidence for the long run. This book is invaluable. It breaks grade 1 math into small pieces and let your child do a little every day. My son learned a lot from this book. He often asks further questions and thinks a lot more. This book helped him do well in math. In the Beestar online math contest (...), he often wins honor mentions. Highly recommend.
Great Review of 1st Grade Math Skills May 10, 2004
I used this book for after-school review with my 6-year-old son. The format (5 problems per day, including 1 word problem) worked great. Used on a daily basis, it provides just enough repetition to do the trick.
You get a total of 180 sets of problems, broken down into 36 weeks. Each set takes up 1/2 of one side of a page. The book provides lots of variety in its problem sets. All in all, this book delivers what it promises, and then some.
