*** NOW AVAILABLE!***: Free Core-compatible Teacher's Guide for I'M BORED, suitable for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The I'M BORED classroom guide offers activities to help teachers integrate I'M BORED into English language arts (ELA), mathematics, science, and social studies curricula. Art and drama are used as a teaching tool throughout the guide.

All activities were created in conjunction with relevant content standards in ELA, math, science, social studies, art, and drama.

The guide was created by Marcie Colleen, a former teacher with a bachelor's degree in English Education from Oswego State and a master's degree in Educational Theater from New York University. Marcie fights boredom every day in Brooklyn, NYC. More info at
