In recent years, Lakeshore has had the unique opportunity to partner with outstanding organizations across the country to create customized materials that meet specific educational needs. In developing materials that target such objectives as early brain development, obesity prevention and school-readiness skills, we’ve been honored to help these organizations find practical solutions that are easily and successfully implemented.
CHOOSY stands for “Choose Healthy Options Often and Start Young®.” The mission of Choosy Kids is to encourage young children to make healthy decisions about nutrition, form healthy habits and adopt active lifestyles. Lakeshore worked in partnership with Choosy’s Dr. Linda Carson—an expert in the field of children’s motor development and obesity prevention—to create the Be Choosy Be Healthy® Activity Kit.
Developed by the Riverside County Office of Education and published by Lakeshore, the SANDI/FAST System (which includes the SANDI—Student Annual Needs Determination Inventory—and the FAST—Formative Assessment of Standards Tasks) is a consistent and comprehensive system of student assessment designed specifically to meet the needs of students with significant cognitive disabilities. In addition to the SANDI/FAST System that targets the needs of elementary, middle and high school/transition students, there is also a SANDI Assessment that addresses the needs of children in early childhood settings.

Tools of the Mind is a research-based curriculum that helps young children develop the cognitive, social-emotional, self-regulatory, and early academic skills they need to succeed in school and beyond. Lakeshore partnered with Tools to create the Pre-K and Kindergarten Curriculum Classroom Materials Kits with tons of materials to help teachers implement the curriculum—all ready to use right out of the box!
