Re: Teaching the Language Strand

Written by a teacher for teachers and their students. It shows. You write like I teach.

Jeanne Alread

The most comprehensive and easy to teach grammar, usage, mechanics, spelling, and vocabulary program. The student workbooks are fantastic. I’m teaching each Standard in the Language Strand and remediating previous grade level Standards. The no prep and minimal correction design really respects a teacher’s time. This program frees me up to teach!

Re: Teaching Essay Strategies and Essay Strategies Toolkit

Your method of teaching argumentative essays is the most step-by-step that I have ever seen. Thanks again for the TES program.  I plan to use a great deal of it, especially the methods!

Kris Fazi

Great step by step worksheets that help students build or reinforce essay writing skills.

Michelle Hunter

A thoroughly comprehensive format to teach writing. Just what I needed.

Thanks to you. I’ve been a teacher using e-comments for a about a year now. What great savings of stress and hand-cramps! I just downloaded your Pennington Manual of Style, another great reference.

Re: Teaching Grammar and Mechanics and Grammar Openers Toolkit

I’ve been teaching for quite a while and seen quite a few grammar programs. This one is the best I’ve used.

Julie

This is an amazing product. It makes individualized instruction a breeze!

Shawna Pounds

As a newer ELA teacher, this is an awesome product to have. It's very thorough and easy to use!

Great resource for revisiting this skill set. The students are enjoying the variety of the handouts. I love the fact that I can access whether or not if I need to reteach these skills to my students.

Patience Scott

This is a great product for teaching grammar and mechanics. I like how it allows for students to achieve mastery. It has great step by step directions for teaching the skills as well as help on differentiating instruction. It seems overwhelming when you first look at it, but once you take"10 minutes" to figure it out, it's awesome!

Laura P.

This has been very useful. It really helped me come up with a way to teach grammar effectively and in a time saving manner.

Re: Differentiated Spelling Instruction

I work with a large ELL population at my school and was not happy with the weekly spelling tests, etc. Through my research in best practices, I know that spelling patterns and word study are so important at this age group. However, I just couldn't find anything out there that combines the two. We have just adopted RtI at my school and your spelling matrix is a great tool for documentation. The grade level spelling program and remediation are perfect for my students. 

Heidi

I have tutored children who are struggling in school for the last 36 years. Using raps and songs to help children remember spelling rules is wonderful!

Cheryl Merrick

Useful for intervention.

Molly Roberts

Re: Essential Study Skills

Joseph Blankenship

Very comprehensive. Thanks very much.

Rhondda

Use with both my study skills and reading remediation classes. Wonderful resource!

Re: Sam and Friends Phonics Books

Just what my struggling middle school and high school readers need!

Joy Hutchings

Re: Grammar Comics!

A sneaky way to get students to learn. Thank you! They love it! 4 stars for quality, accuracy, practicality, thoroughness, creativity, and clarity.

Re: Teaching Reading Strategies and Reading Fluency and Comprehension Toolkit

I love the assessments. The students were much more willing to try when they understood that they would work on skills they as individuals were missing. The worksheets are detailed enough to really cover the material without overwhelming the students. The program is structured so that I can easily work with a small group or individual as needed to fill instructional gaps.

Jules Stras 

This has been a great resource for my small group instruction!

Carrrie Thornton

A very thorough phonics program. I believe it can also be used based on student's ability levels. If you are looking for a supplementary resource, or a primary resource, this is the one! Thank you!

Sarah Hasbrook

This is a great resource to use with my struggling 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.

Cougar Creations

I just visited your website and, oh my, I actually felt my heart leap with joy! I am working with one class of ESL students and two classes of Read 180 students with behavior issues and have been struggling to find methods to address their specific areas of weakness. I am also teaching three senior level English classes and have found them to have serious deficits in many critical areas that may impact their success if they are attending college level courses in a year's time. I have been trying to find a way to help all of them in specific and measurable ways - and I found you! I just wanted to thank you for creating these explicit and extensive resources for students in need. Thank you!

Cathy Ford

This is a fantastic resource.

Melissa Gartly

Our Middle school has purchased your toolkit for Reading Fluency and Comprehension (a slice of Teaching Reading Strategies). So far we are delighted with it and are happy with the results!

Heather Lewis

I used this with a student I was tutoring, made a great improvement in her fluency skills!

Kira Brower

Used during our after school tutoring to boost DIBELS scores! Great product! Thanks!
