learning lab resources - about page


My name is Melissa and I am an educator, blogger, and curriculum designer.

For most of my teaching career, I taught third grade, but I also have experience teaching fifth grade and even preschool science. 

Through my experiences in the classroom, I know how much time and dedication teachers put into planning to make each lesson meaningful and engaging.  

I’m here to help offer you teaching tips and low-prep resources to help take some of the burdens off you so you can do what you do best – teach!  

My Mission

My mission and goal on this blog is to provide both teachers and students with engaging resources, ideas, and materials to help make teaching and learning meaningful! 

In my store, you will find:

  • hands-on science units that integrate language arts
  • no-prep reading fluency, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and reading strategy resources
  • cursive handwriting and reading practice activities
  • digital resources in the form of TpT Easel, Google Docs, and Boom Cards to integrate technology and extend learning to the home
