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!
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!
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!
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.
Target Math enhances our classroom learning while spiraling back through what has previously been taught. I love the questions as they are often posed with higher level question stems. (TEKSas Target Practice, 4th grade, digital user)
