Lakeshore Learning Materials today announced that four of its products have been selected to receive Learning® Magazine's Teachers' Choice Award—one of the most prestigious honors in the education market.

Lakeshore's Math Plinko and Launch It! Language Games have won the Teachers' Choice Award for the Classroom, making this the second year in a row that the company has won in this category. Lakeshore's Let's Learn Language! Interactive Game Shows and Pop & Add to 20 Game were named winners of the Teachers' Choice Award for the Family.

Now in its 20th year, the Teachers' Choice Awards recognize standout achievements in educational products for the classroom and the home. Each year, a nationwide panel of teachers comes together to evaluate and rigorously test hundreds of products for quality, ease of use, innovation and, most importantly, their ability to enhance the learning experience.

"We're delighted and honored to receive such an esteemed award from the very professionals we are dedicated to supporting," said Bo Kaplan, Lakeshore's president and CEO. "Teachers are the reason why Lakeshore exists, and their enthusiasm and commitment is what motivates us to develop products that enrich learning in every way."

Developed exclusively by teachers, Lakeshore's top-quality materials are renowned for their unique "learn through play" approach, and this year's award winners reflect this philosophy. Whether it's an interactive language game that allows students to compete in a fun-filled quiz show or a hands-on math activity that incorporates colorful manipulatives, dice poppers and more, Lakeshore's products are designed to spark young imaginations and foster a lifelong love of learning.
