(CBS/KWTV) McLOUD, Okla. - A group of families is suing an  Oklahoma teacher accused of inviting her elementary school students to her home and videotaping them wearing lingerie.

Kimberly Crain submitted her resignation letter to the McLoud school district on Monday, shortly after the criminal investigation began.

"There are other allegations that are surfacing daily about incidents that may or may not have taken place at the school," said Joe Vorndran, the families' attorney, reports CBS affiliate KWTV. "Some of these photographs [that] may arise may border on pornography. If the school did not take proper steps to keep these children safe and protected, then we're going to seek causes of action against them."

The third grade teacher, who had been with the district almost six years, was put on administrative leave on November 18 following allegations she had inappropriate relations with five female students, KWTV reports. The allegations stem from an incident that occurred November 11 in Crain's home.

A police affidavit states one of the victims told her parents that Crain asked the girls to go one by one into the bedroom to change into Christmas-themed bras and underwear, which she had laid out for them, KWTV reports.

The girls then ate pizza and decorated a tree while Crain took pictures and video of them, according to the affidavit.

KWTV reports court papers show other allegations that stated Crain had students talk to an older man over Skype two to three times a week while in her classroom. The papers allege Crain took pictures of students posing on their desks with a cell phone.

Police reportedly plan to seize all digital storage devices from Crain's home, including laptop and desktop computers.
