Monterey, Calif. (August 18, 2009) – Evan-Moor Educational Publishers introduces Daily Language Review Centers, a comprehensive classroom kit, available for grades one through three, that helps teachers supplement their core language program with dynamic centers and targeted skills practice. The 36 full-color ready-to-use centers in each kit cover the same standards-correlated skills as Evan-Moor’s popular Daily Language Review series in an exciting new format.
“Daily Language Review is one of our most popular and effective resource books,” said Joy Evans, co-founder and publisher of Evan-Moor. “We wanted to offer the targeted skills practice of this powerful series in a center format that teachers could use along with the daily lessons or as stand-alone center activities.”
And that’s just what they did. Each Daily Language Review Centers classroom kit comes with 36 full-color centers that couldn’t be any more fun if they tried. Students indentify adverbs while placing word cards on How, When, and Where cars of a train. Distinguish between fact and opinion while placing sentence cards on the correct Fact and Opinion hockey goals. Or practice spelling by matching correctly-spelled words with their images to complete the design on a surfboard.
However, though it may seem like it to students, Daily Language Review Centers isn’t all fun and games. Along with the 36 folder-centers, each classroom kit comes with a complete set of educational tools to help teachers provide students with comprehensive language skills practice.
- Target – Teachers identify areas where students need extra support using the focused, daily practice in the Teacher’s Edition of Daily Language Review. The short 10- to 15-minute lessons provide teachers with standards-based language practice that easily fits into their busy classroom schedules.
- Plan – Helpful resources in the Teacher’s Guide, such as center assignment sheets, student and class checklists, center directions, and answer keys, help teachers plan, prepare, track, and record students’ skill mastery.
- Practice – The full-color compelling designs and high-interest themes of each folder-center engage students as they practice and reinforce grade-level language skills.
- Assess – Consumable Student Response Booklets provide an informal assessment of students’ skill mastery while helping them keep track of which centers they’ve completed.
“One of the things I love most about Daily Language Review Centers is that it supports language practice in so many different ways,” says Evans of the format. “Each center can be used as a teaching device to introduce new skills, as an assigned or free-choice practice activity, or as an assessment tool. And because it’s so easily integrated with other language instruction, it’s perfect for afterschool or remedial programs.”Available now, each grade-level edition comes in a sturdy storage box and is priced at $349.99.
