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 Writing Poetry With Children?
Makes writing poetry easy Nov 17, 2008
This is a great tool for teaching children how to write poetry. Good explanations of the types of poetry and fun pages on which to write poetry. The kids keep asking, "When do we get to write more poetry?"
Great book Nov 3, 2008
I homeschool my 12-year old son and it was difficult finding anything on line about poetry. This book covers couplets, triplets, quatrains, cinquains, haiku, limericks, shape poems and acrostics. It has plenty of template pages and we have both enjoyed working from this book. I wish I had reproduced the pages before we used them, as you could write different types of poems on each of the templates. I would highly recommend this book if you want to cover basic poetry.
Fun Book! Oct 17, 2001
My family is having lots of fun learning the forms in this book. Easy to understand and any child who can read and write can do it. This book helped me interest my children in writing, and sometimes I find them doing it on their own now!
