WOW Testimonials

"I think that this is a great program! I struggle to get my students to partake in discussions with each other and with teachers. This program has gotten them to talk and make connections. They frequently talk about things they learned during WOW throughout the school day."

–Kindergarten Teacher

“What I like most about the WOW program is the incorporation of literature. So frequently in Science, teachers find themselves scrambling to find texts to match concepts. The WOW program skillfully matches texts that escalate in difficulty of concepts to allow all students access.”

–Kindergarten Teacher

“Topics were high interest, for both my students, and myself.”

–2nd Grade Teacher

“One of the parents came in and gave me feedback saying, “So what are these words that my son was telling me about drought, and about this and that?” And I say: “Oh, I’m glad he’s doing that.” She was like: “I don’t even know those words.” So, you know, that makes me happy that that child was taking whatever he was learning in the classroom, he was taking it out there to share it with the mom.”

–1st Grade Teacher

“WOW lessons are simple, easy to read, and direct. Other programs might have three pages for one lesson and that’s too much. WOW is right to the point.”

–Kindergarten Teacher

“I am very happy that I was part of the program because my students’ vocabulary and interest for nonfiction text increased as we continued to study the different units.”

–1st Grade Teacher

“It's one of the best programs I've seen.”

–Pre-Kindergarten Teacher

“It’s exposing kids to vocabulary that they would not normally hear.”

–Pre-Kindergarten Teacher

“The teachers that were a part of it [the WOW program] would collaborate and talk about, well, what did we do wrong? Where did we mess up? How could we…? So it got us talking…we were able to reflect back and we would do it together, which was wonderful.”

–Teacher

“Helped her [teacher] determine how to ask questions, she explained that she typically asks lower order thinking questions and the questions in WOW (comparing) made her ask higher level questions.”
