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 Thinking Skills, Grades 1-2?
Not the best book out there Dec 4, 2008
I wasnt very happy with this book, it has some good pages but in general Im not using it with my son. In the other hand I love most books by criticalthinking company (specially Mind Benders), my son also likes them a lot. They are pricey but worth the money.
Encourages critical thinking. Jan 20, 2007
I am a teacher who also home-schooled my own kids for awhile. I have used this workbook/cd set for a long time and believe it is one of the best critical thinking workbooks out there for several reasons.
First, this workbook comes with a CD that you can pop into your computer and print out the worksheets for one child or several children at a time. So, the book is not consumable, which means that you can use it over and over again!
Second, there are detailed teacher/instructor directions about each topic.
Third, they are fun activities. I have found that kids love the activities in this workbook, even if the work is a bit above their thinking level. That's the point, it's challenging and really encourages young kids to look at problems from all different possible angles and to generate multiple answers.
Finally, this workbook is adaptable. By that I mean that it's great for using in a circumstance where you are required to teach to different learning levels. For example, I teach a class that has Kindergartner level students through junior high school level learners. I am able to print individual lessons that fit each level, at least through the 4th or 5th grade level students. This workbook is great if you're teaching on-level K through early 3rd grade or if you're teaching slower 3rd, 4th and 5th graders.
