It’s Elementary!

Lessons & Literature

These are just a few of my resources.  If you have a specific topic that you are interested in addressing, or a skill that you would like to nurture, please do not hesitate to contact The Intentional Teacher (NYC) for additional suggestions. 

My toolbox has become far too complex to post every resource here, although I may add a few recommendations from time to time.


  • Manners & Respect for Others
  • Sharing, Diversity, & Inclusion
  • Tattling & Telling the Truth
  • Friendship
  • Patience & Flexibility

Other activities include… 

    • Create Collages with mixed media – it is like putting a puzzle together to represent a concept.
  • Practice problem solving – Mazes – You can find these online.  Just print them out…or buy a book filled with mazes.

Humor Anything Mo Willems

  • That Is Not a Good Idea!
  • Pigs Make Me Sneeze! (health and hygiene)

thats-not-a-good-idea            pigs-make-me-sneeze

Great book to read when the Kindergarten chicks hatch.

Can also use to compare and contrast to Hansel & Gretel (if you do not have an issue with this fairy tales ending).
