TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Elementary Solutions is a division of Secondary Solutions, which was founded by Kristen Bowers in 2005. A high school English teacher, Mrs. Bowers grew frustrated and tired of trying to get by with lessons that did not meet her or her students' needs, and decided that if grade-level appropriate materials were going to be available to her and other teachers, she was going to have to make them herself. Joined by a colleague with 21 years of full-time teaching experience in middle school and upper elementary, Secondary Solutions began, and has matured into a specialized team of intermediate and secondary teachers who have developed a set of materials unsurpassed by all others.

Completely Common Core Standards-Based, Elementary Solutions™ materials will guide teachers and students through the often arduous task of teaching (and learning) the standards that today's students are expected to master, while enabling the teacher to continue to introduce great literature into the classroom, fostering a love of reading among students. Just as Secondary Solutions was created to address the concerns of the middle and high school English teacher, Elementary Solutions was started to address the concerns of those in the elementary school classroom.

Before the innovation of Elementary Solutions materials that were available often included unsuitable questions, unfocused activities, and frivolous, trivial, or even downright silly worksheets and activities, and most often, the standards were not addressed or even alluded to.

Elementary Solutions provides all of the necessary materials for complete coverage of the literature units of study, including author biographies, pre-reading activities, chapter questions, graphic organizers, literary analysis, critical thinking activities, writing ideas, extension activities, quizzes, tests, alternative assessment, and so much more. Each Guide is designed to address the unique learning styles and comprehension levels of the students in your classroom, paying particular attention to Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. Our Guides also include teacher materials, as our focus is on helping you to teach the standards!

Our Guides can be used with whole-class instruction, small-group instruction, and are even effective enough to use with individual student-led instruction with little to no guidance from the teacher. You can hand out these materials in your classroom and feel confident that your students will be getting the instruction they need to be successful in state and local assessments.

As a busy teacher, you don't have to waste time reinventing the wheel. You want to get down to the business of teaching! With our professionally developed teacher-written Literature Guides, Elementary Solutions has provided you with the answer to your time-management problems, while saving you hours of tedious and exhausting work. Our Guides will allow you to focus on the most important aspects of teaching--the personal one-on-one, hands-on instruction you enjoy most--the reason you became a teacher in the first place.

Elementary Solutions--The Solution is Elementary!

We believe in engaging, practical activities to help students learn the necessary skills to be successful in assessments as well as those skills necessary for success in life.
