TCM Honored at the White House
30 May, 2013
Teacher Created Materials was among a select group of publishers honored at the White House for publishing educational materials that feature information on health. Part of a select group of educational organizations and publishers, Teacher Created Materials was among those celebrated for developing teaching resources that inspire healthy choices in food and activity.
Michelle Obama applauded the "development of voluntary guidance to incorporate health information into textbooks and other learning materials." By incorporating healthy food and physical activity into the educational publications, "publishers are making simple changes, like swapping out cupcakes for apples in math problems. They are also finding ways to include physical activity in lesson plans – discussing the history of little league baseball and using sports in word problems," posts Kelly Miterko, Let's Move Blog.
Teacher Created Materials' Science Readers: A Closer Look Be Healthy! Be Fit! kit proved to be a healthy choice for educators featuring life science concepts related to being healthy and fit through the supported investigation based on the First Lady's Let's Move Initiative.
"The importance of teaching children is on the minds of Teacher Created Materials at every stage of product development. This celebration of health in learning today makes you very proud of our country. We all work hard to make things better for our youth and it is definitely a goal we all share," says Rachelle Cracchiolo, CEO and Founder.
