Hello, I am Mrs. Sara Murphy. I am a mother of 3, Army wife, teacher, and Grad student. I am a graduate of Marian College, with a degree in Elementary Education. I will be graduating in May 2017 with a Master's degree in Reading. My goal for this year is to get acquainted with your student and provide an intellectually challenging and successful classroom for each student.

Mrs. Murphy  & Class 

It was a great year!

This was a class that had a gift to gab, which made for many interesting conversations and an abundance of smiles and laughter!!

Have a great summer!


A science fun activity to end our year!  First, the students had to brainstorm what makes a good water slide.  Then, they designed their waterslide.  Next, they had to create their waterslides.  Finally, they had to test their waterslides and reflect on the results.  It was challenging and fun!!

I hope we made you SMILE today!!


 Thank you!

Mrs. Murphy



Here is the link to our school calendar for 2018-2019

Mark your calendar for these important 2nd Grade Events!










Websites this website is great for finding interest books.  Your child can mark interests, reading level, and book types and the website will find only books in your child’s interest level.  It also has listen to read in picture, non-fiction, and chapter books.  I use it to break up Daily 5.  They seem to really enjoy it. Plus, it expands your reading library!!

Moby max will help with math fluency and more…

Spelling City contains a list of all our spelling words, which will be uploaded Monday of each week.  It contains not only the list, but games your child can play to get to know them better.

Here is a website I created with key vocabulary, ideas, tools, and tricks.


Please do not feel as if you have to purchase anything!  These are things that I am interested in getting for the class.

Product DetailsProduct Details Classroom Stools:  I am looking for at least 2 to use at a taller table or by window.  I have many that struggle sitting, so sometimes a different level of sitting is needed.  These will allow for a little flexibility and assist in focusing students.  They do not have to be new, just sturdy!   Anything will do, I hope they will be able to be tucked in close to the table or under it.  Preferred height is 15 – 24 inches.  These are just some examples or ideas. 



Science items: Paper towel rolls, rubber bands, straws,

digital timer easy for kids to use and monitor.
