Evan-Moor’s Daily Practice Resources Raise Student Achievement

Evan-Moor Daily Practice resources are used in millions of classrooms for morning work and test prep and to provide spiral review of skills throughout the year.

Monterey, CA (September 6, 2018)—Morning work has become the staple lesson plan in many elementary classrooms. The short, focused lessons help transition students into the classroom environment while giving them appropriate review and practice. Morning work should be purposeful, manageable, and relevant. It should enhance a classroom instruction and reinforce concepts and skills that students learn throughout the school year. With consistent spiral review, students retain their learning and perform better on state achievement tests.

Evan-Moor’s line of Daily Practice titles provides short daily lessons across the curriculum. Ideal for cross-curricular morning work, Daily Practice titles are also effective in helping children learn and practice skills to prepare for state assessments and the next grade level. Evan-Moor’s 15 Daily Practice titles follow a similar, easy-to-implement format and are available as either “practice dailies” or “teaching dailies.”

Practice Dailies make it easy to practice and assess skills across the curriculum in just 10 minutes a day. The lessons support grade-level concepts and skills and reinforce lessons that are introduced in the core curriculum.
