Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2015
Teacher Created Materials, a leading publisher of educational materials located in Huntington Beach, recently honored National Education Association’s Read Across America Day with 82 employee volunteers who shared their love of reading and activities with students in the classroom.
All of the activities took place at Oak View Elementary school, including four remote school sites. Amidst a backdrop of unusual thunder and lightning, the staff from Teacher Created Materials spent time reading to students and provided opportunities for students to practice reading through reader’s theater and other activities. Students were also encouraged to practice writing about the stories. At the end of the day, each student was provided a backpack filled with books and activities that can be used at school and at home.
Oak View Elementary serves students in preschool through fifth grade, including students enrolled in the school’s Special Education Program. The school was selected due its needs and importance to the local community. Oak View is located in Huntington Beach, California.
“The opportunity for our employees to experience the joy on students’ faces as they read to them was priceless,” said Corinne Burton, President of Teacher Created Materials. “Giving back to the educational community by supporting our local schools with this kind of employee volunteer activity is rewarding for everyone involved—the students, the employees, and the teachers.”
