Lessons 4 Little Ones O'Block Beginnings and Vision I’m Tina O’Block and inspiring young children to want to learn and love school is my passion. I have taught pre-k and kindergarten for over 20 years and my classroom is my happy place. I have just as much fun teaching as my students do learning. My students’ energy and enthusiasm fuel me to want to be a better teacher and person. Their parents entrust me with their most treasured possession and I feel a great responsibility to them to help their children reach their full potential and become lifelong learners. Therefore, I am constantly striving to find creative lessons that reach all the ability levels of my students, but are also engaging and meaningful. Quite frankly, the curriculums I have been given over the years have fallen flat in providing this and that is the reason I started creating my own lessons. Soon parents started requesting copies of some of my materials because their children were talking about all the fun they were having in school. Then fellow teachers started asking me for lessons and this inspired me to start sharing my materials and ideas with others in the hopes of helping dedicated teachers save their valuable time and help make learning more fun for students. I have collected, created, and tried MANY ideas over the years and this is where I share my favorites with you in the hopes of helping you save valuable planning time and help your students love learning.
