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 Giant Write Every Day?
Must have for the idea challenged teacher. May 18, 2008
Are you the elementary writing teacher who can't think of topics for your children to use in writing assignments? This book is for you. I am an idea challenged teacher who just can't think of topics and I love using this book. It has everything - quick writes that can be used as daily writing assignments or journal entries, story starters for longer assignments, and writing forms that cover a variety of topics. For me, it's a valuable resource.
Giant - Write Everyday Aug 2, 2006
Excellent resource for any parent, teacher or guardian aiming to effectively guide their children to better writing skills. THat the book has 12 sections - one for each month of the year, is a great way to get kids to practise writing and come to love it.
Writing stories, essays, narratives etc can be a daunting task for many children. This book serves to remove that fear barrier as well as banish that "Do-I-have-to-write-when-I-can-be-playing-somethingelse" attitude. With interesting and many different story starters and ideas, children are allowed free rein of their imagination which will manifest in their writings.
Writing has to be practised frequently to get better. No better way for children to pick up this skill and improve than by using this book. Isabelle Lim - Singapore
