Were your ears burning? Last week, a team of visiting teachers paraded through my classroom after school during a school tour and they looked all around my room at the Vocabulary posters all over my walls. They remarked about how colorful and helpful these posters were and asked me where I got them. I told them all about you. Keep up the good work! I use these posters every day in my teaching and more importantly my students use them every day in their learning.
I was one of the first teachers to use Target Math at my previous school district, and it was amazing. I believe my students performed better on the state assessments because of this amazing product. I am sad that my current district does not have it because it is an amazing resource to have. It is worth every penny.
We use Seeing Science Structures in our classroom and it helped us tremendously! Our results from student testing went from 68% to 92% after successfully implementing Seeing Science Structures! Thanks for providing top of the line materials that really prepare our students to become independent, critical thinkers!

Your products are of great benefit to our students. We use TEKSas Target Practice in most grade levels as a warm up activity. It is the best way to cover all TEKS objectives. I am a Special Education teacher and I use it in resource daily. What I like best is the teachable moments that TEKSas Target Practice offers when a student doesn’t get it. I can immediately teach a mini lesson on that set. Way to go! I am ordering the Target Reading as a (Laungauge Arts) support.
I am so impressed with the target reading program I purchased for my 4th grade class. We are going into the 4th week of school and this is my first year utilizing it, but I can already see a change in my students writing. I am teaching at a tier 4, title 1 school. About 30% of my students passed STAAR last year and I knew they would need some extra practice if they were going to have any hope of improving this year. This program has interesting stories every week that are fun for the students to read. They never get bored with the materials provided. I love the sentence building exercise that they do every day because not only are they learning how to build good, descriptive sentences but they are learning what nouns, verbs, and adjectives are. And this is something they practice EVERY day. The questions of the day are higher level thinking and require the students to refer back to the story for details. I can’t say enough good things about this program. Money well spent and I will be using it for years to come. Thank you for creating this wonderful program! It is something I think every district in Texas should be using.
Word of the Day – I just wanted to let you know we have gone through 124 of these words, so I decided to give them a test over all of those words, just out of curiosity. I have all 100s in my 1st period! This is amazing, because this word list has never gone home! The students are just reviewing it daily and weekly in class. You have made such a difference for my students and me! I cannot tell you how much you have improved my classes for my students and for me. Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
My name is Sharon Shafer. I am a fifth grade teacher at Hempstead Elementary. I was first introduced to Lone Star Learning last year at the CAMT conference in San Antonio. At first, I was reluctant to use their products because I was a fan of a different program. A third grade teacher from my school finally talked me into trying the program. Thank you Lone Star Learning! This year my students went from barely passing TAKS to 95% passing with 41% Commended Performance! My 5th graders love using your TEKSas Target Practice program and it is very easy to implement. Thanks again!
