Testimonials

“I am still embracing those books I purchased from you in 1989. Most of the time new resources outdate the old, but not so with your products. I have praised the quality of Pieces of Learning for many years and continue to do so. When resources continue to provide excellent learning activities and the clearly defined ‘whys’ and ‘how to’s’ of K-12 instructional methods and strategies, you folks deserve yet another pat on the back for being ahead of your time.”

-Rosemarie Gold, Director, MAT, Morehead State University

-Mary, LaGrange GA

“I appreciate the valuable descriptions you provide for most of your resource and activity books. I especially like the sample pages provided on some books.

My favorite books that I use continuously with my gifted students are PETS™, the Products Tool Bag CDs, differentiated learning resources, and almost anything by Carolyn Coil! Thanks for producing quality resources and activity books!”

-A. Nichols, Durham NC

“It is wonderful to have a source of materials for students not only to use in a gifted program, but also for classroom teachers to have available the rest of the week. It is something I have wanted to provide for the classroom teachers in my school, but time being such a rare commodity for extras, I was having a tough time doing it. But your materials make it easy to create resources for the teachers (and for me!) without feeling it to be one more burden. Thanks for the great resources! I also love the sample pages…”

-C. Savery, Melbourne Beach, FL

“I am always interested in viewing the products you have to offer. It seems that you are able to present the ‘cutting edge approach’ kinds of teacher books rather consistently. Pieces of Learning keeps me informed and knowledgeable about what helps children learn. Been a fan for years.”

-J. Price, Tulsa OK

“I was very happy with the sample pages from some of your books that I was browsing. It is hard to buy teacher resources online as you never really know what you are getting until it gets here. Sample pages ease that frustration.”

-M. Barkemeyer, Norwood CO

“I am amazed at how much I use your products. I have been teaching 17 years and it’s hard to find something that impresses me anymore until I came across your items. I use them daily. Thank you to all the educators who individually or as a group created these wonderful materials!”

-G. Gault, Conyers GA
