About us

Welcome to Learning At The Primary Pond, your one-stop shop for high-quality, research-based teaching resources for Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade.

We are a team of passionate educators who believe that every child deserves a strong foundation in literacy and math.

We know how challenging it can be to find effective and engaging materials that align with the standards and best practices.

That’s why we created this store, to provide you with ready-to-use, printable and digital resources that you and your students will love.

Our lead product designer is Alison Ryan, a former classroom teacher and literacy coach with over 15 years of experience in education. Alison holds a master's degree in literacy education and a reading specialist certification.

She is also the founder of the popular blog Learning At The Primary Pond, where she shares practical tips and strategies for teaching elementary students.

Our mission is to help you save time, reduce stress, and make a positive impact on your students’ learning. Whether you need lesson plans, centers, assessments, or intervention materials, we have something for you.

Browse our store by grade level, subject, or category, and find the perfect resources for your needs. Thank you for visiting our store and supporting our work.
