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 Take It to Your Seat Literacy Centers, Grades K-1?
Relevant Jan 13, 2007
I wanted something relevant that students could work on while I was working with small groups - without having to spend a lot of time on my part organizing. This works well. It was time consuming at first to set up the folders (I laminated), but now that it is done there is very little time on my part required. I teach 4th grade and plan on getting the centers for 4th - 5th next year and starting students on 3-4 at the beginning of the year and switching to 4-5 during the 2nd semester. Now I want to try the one for science and the one for geography.
EASY TO MAKE Jan 3, 2007
Out of many centers books I've tried, this was by far the quickest and easiest to set up. No coloring, just laminate and cut it out. I'm ordering the math centers, too. A great product I would recommend to any teacher!
Teacher Friendly Aug 1, 2006
Definitely worth the money! All the time we spend as teachers, coloring, cutting out, and creating activities is done and bound in a book for us! All you have to do is cut the pieces out! Plus there's an assessment piece with each activity which allows you to check up on students who are working independently!
Good Centers for Young Minds Sep 5, 2005
Literacy Centers 3-4 has wonderful independent activities that any teacher can implement during their Independent Work Time (IWT from Open Court). My students love reinforcing learned skills with fun centers.
I'm done. What can I do now? Aug 15, 2005
I purchased 5 of these file folder books this summer. I was amazed to see how many of the skills fit into my grade level content expectations! I am very excited to introduce another option for students who need more to do. I have designed a poster so they can keep track of which folders they have already done. I plan to give them "extra" grades for folders completed.
