I teach 3rd grade Science at Dublin Elementary but I help out our Math teachers by doing the TEKSas Target Practice. My kids love to come to class and get busy working on it. It is challenging and fun! Thank you for the wonderful product.
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.
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!
It is always exciting to review best practices for all students and encourage our special educators that TEKS based instruction can be accessible to students with disabilities. We appreciate the structure, visual representation, and strategies embedded in your product design. Thanks for your generosity and support!
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.
TEKS Target Practice has been a game changer for our math scores. We have had the paper version for the past 3 years. This year we purchased the electronic version and it has been even easier to implement. We have implemented TEKS Target Board as morning work. Students automatically know their expectations when they walk in the classroom. When we introduce a new topic our students already have a baseline of information because they have seen something like it on the Target board. We have used the TEKS Target Board in 3rd faithfully and our scores have improved drastically.
