Lesson Plans Have Arrived!

Education.com Blog

Organizing for the classroom requires teachers to meticulously plan out each day, hunting for resources to complement each lesson and creating backup plans for students who need differentiation.

We recruited over 70 contributors with experience teaching elementary-aged children from all over the United States to share their expertise. Working with a diverse group of educators gave our lesson plans a wide breadth of themes and knowledge, ensuring that all teachers could find a lesson that worked for their classes.

To date, we have published 965 lesson plans and counting, moving forward to our goal of 1000. Our lesson plans cover math, science, reading, writing, social studies, and ESL topics.

"The inspirations for our lesson planning template included the structure of mini-lessons used by Lucy Calkins in the Teachers College of Reading and Writing Curriculum and the structure of interactive modeling developed by Responsive Classroom," explains Tatum Omari, the Director of Curriculum at Education.com. "The end product we were aiming for with our template was one that incorporated best practices in instruction and that could easily be adapted to any subject area."

Many of our lesson plans are paired with original Education.com content, such as worksheets, customized worksheets, workbooks, digital games and activity ideas. These materials help students practice the skills using a range of strategies, so there’s something useful for every kind of learner.

Our new lesson plans help streamline the process of classroom planning by offering educators structured plans that help students practice everything from counting and multiplication to reading comprehension.

Welcome to What's New on Education.com

Education.com Blog

Welcome to What's New! Here you'll find out about things we’re working on, like when we launch new tools or features on the website, and what seasonal content you can expect. Come back often to find out more about the parts of Education.com you already know and use, and upcoming features we think you’re going to love.

We're so proud to bring your favorite workbooks to print; put together through Education.com’s partnership with Dover Publications.

“One of the main requests we have heard from our members,” states co-CEO Todd Schwartz, “is to make our worksheets available in a book format. So for the past few years, we’ve searched for a publisher that shares our core values—and the name that we kept returning to was Dover Publications. Dover has been in business for over seven decades and they have always made sure to keep prices low and the educational content high. In fact, they offer hundreds of books for children that are filled with the same type of educational activities that are found in our worksheets. It is also exciting that their wide distribution network will make our products available in entirely new channels.”

“When Hayward and Blanche Cirker founded Dover in 1941,” adds Dover’s President, Frank Fontana, “they were determined to publish high-quality works at prices that were in reach of just about any reader. Our very first title was a low-priced reprint of a mathematics text, so we have been in the educational business since day one. Even our children’s titles help educate as they entertain since we publish coloring and activity books about counting, famous people, historical events, and more. So a partnership with Education.com makes perfect sense—we’re very complementary companies. Education.com provides the worksheet expertise, and our staff of professionals design, edit, publish, and market the actual books. Flipping through the first few titles, it’s obvious that the collaboration has been a rousing success.”

The workbook series launches with 20 grade-specific titles, including Creatures & Counting, Adventures in Writing, Fun with Nature, Earth & Sky, Math Mania, and All Sorts of Science. Each workbook offers 100 pages of worksheets

Printed and distributed by Dover Publications, the new Education.com workbooks are now available at www.doverpublications.com, Amazon, Books-a-Million, and other major retailers.
