I teach 3rd grade Science at Dublin Elementary but I help out our Math teachers by doing the Target Math. My kids love to come to class and get busy working on it. It is challenging and fun! Thank you for the wonderful product. Leslie Curry 3rd Grade Science Dublin Elementary
We want to thank you for developing the perfect Science vocabulary flash cards to help support our English as a Second Language (ESL) students. We initially ordered them with just our ESL students in mind, but as it turns out they have been helping many of our students who struggle with some of the more difficult science terms. If you are debating about purchasing these cards, you won’t be disappointed. You can tell a lot of thought went into choosing the right photos to help students understand and remember what many of the key science terms mean.

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.
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.
We have had several schools across Texas (one coming as far as 5 hours away) to look at our math program and why we have such high scores on STAAR. We are definitely pushing your product because we believe in it and feel that it is why we do so well on testing each year! We couldn’t do without it!
My students look forward to Lone Star every morning. Thank you for helping learning be both challenging and fun.
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.

My teachers love TEKSas Target Practice. We have been using your product for the past 4 years and my teachers feel that this is one reason we have had exemplary math scores on the TAKS test.
Target Vocabulary Set 1 – I will recommend this to every teacher I know! This was by far my favorite product I evaluated this year! Both my students and I loved this!!

I was given sets 1 & 2 of the Target Vocabulary Pictures. I posted them all over the room, two years running! Any time a child had a question about a vocabulary word, I would point to the word as I explained it, thus hoping that seeing the picture while hearing the word would help them better understand the term. Even during my last TAKS test, I saw the children looking to the wall where the word had been posted when they encountered it on the test. Muscle memory and dual sensory introduction combined, hopefully, help bring the word to mind easier. That year our school went from “Unacceptable State Standard” to “Acceptable State Standard” and our goal is “Exceptional State Standard” for next year. I think the vocabulary pictures helped a lot! Thank You Lone Star Learning!
