More About Evan-Moor Educational Publishers

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.

Our History

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.

Our Future

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 Building Spelling Skills: Grade 1?

Great foundational book for homeschoolers  Dec 15, 2008
I am happy with the structure and content of this workbook and many of 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. I will agree that there is some "busy work" that does not really help develop spelling skills, so we often skip those sections. I would also like a quarterly review/quiz activity to help reinforce things.
Nice format, well organized, but in my opinion too easy.  Sep 16, 2008
I like this book but the words in the spelling lists themselves are too easy! There are 30 weeks with a new list each week and my DD is probably at the level of Week 15 right now. Getting ready to purchase the 2nd grade book. This isn't the only spelling book I use--I also use the Barron's series, "101 Words Your Child Will Spell By the End of 1st Grade", which I absolutely love.
Apropriate in conjunction with other methods  Feb 5, 2008
I use this series as the basis of my daughter's spelling curriculum. Though I would never use it as a stand alone curriculum. Alone it is boring "busy work", but busy work that I feel is necessary to reinforce her spelling skills with repetition, and visual recognition.
I think it is vital to note that one reason I chose this series is the low amount of worksheets in the book. There are an average of 2-3 worksheets per spelling list (with simple problems and exercises on the front and back pages, in large print). That's not much considering the amount most curriculum provide (some up to 10 pages of work per list!).
To supplement the series we play several spelling games, do oral spelling bees, and practice in other ways to reinforce her learning.
Though my DD does dread doing worksheets (there are some small complaints when the spelling workbook is brought out). She's done with them quickly so spelling practice (along with games and simple oral exercises) is finished in 15-30 minutes; making spelling her shortest and most painless subject.
I am pleased enough with the 1st grade level of this series that we are purchasing 2nd grade now.
This is the type of workbook I hate. It includes alot of busy-work that doesn't actually teach children how to spell. The exercises are boring, and a complete waste of time since they don't actually teach the children how to spell the words. There are dictation sentences for each spelling lesson that include words that are more difficult to spell than the words in that week's spelling list. For instance, in Week Six, the dictation sentence is "I have a pup on the bus." The word HAVE, which is obviously the most difficult word to spell in the dictation sentence, is NOT one of that week's spelling words. The word "I" is, as are "pup" and "bus." (Which also begs the question, why is the word "I" a spelling word? The proper usage of "I" should be taught in a grammar workbook. The word certainly doesn't belong in a spelling book.) Anyway, kids could study their five-word spelling list for Week Six, do all of the workbook exercises, and fail the dictation-sentence test because they wouldn't be able to spell a word that wasn't even on the spelling list. This is just one indication that this series was NOT written or overseen by anyone who knows how to teach children. If your teacher uses this book in the classroom, complain loudly and clearly. If you are homeschooling, don't waste your time and money, or your kid's precious brain cells.
Appropriate and useful spelling program  Sep 21, 2003
This book includes spelling lists and practice sheets for a very good spelling program. If you're like me, and your reading series does not address spelling appropriately (or at all), then you'll find this book very useful. The spelling words are very appropriate for first grade. (There's also editions for the other grades.) For example the first spelling unit is the words: a, an, and, am, and at. My class is doing very well with this program, and it's easy for me, too. Everything is provided in reproducibles.
