Lessons for Little Ones by Tina O'Block Blog Logo


I’m Tina O’Block and my passion is inspiring young children to want to learn and love school. I have just as much fun teaching as my students do learning!

I have taught PreK and Kindergarten for over 20 years and my classroom is my happy place. 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 help their children reach their full potential and become lifelong learners.

My background

My goal as a teacher of little ones has always been the same: find creative lessons that reach all the ability levels of my students, but are also engaging and meaningful. I started creating my own lessons after becoming frustrated by the lack of fun and creativity in school-issued curriculum.

Parents began requesting copies of my materials because their children were talking about all the fun they were having in school.  I was inspired to start sharing my ideas with others after fellow teachers started asking me for lessons too. I strive to help dedicated teachers save their valuable time and make learning more fun for students.

I use my 20+ years of classroom experience, as well as my Curriculum & Instruction and Elementary Education degrees, to design lessons for teachers that motivate and inspire their students to reach their full potential and to love learning. 

I have collected, created, and tried MANY ideas over the years. I’m sharing my favorites in the hopes of helping you save valuable planning time and help your students love learning.
