Mrs. Murphy & Class
We have reached the peak of the school year. The tough times are still approaching… WINTER!! Cold days and inside recess are upon us, but at least the spirits in our classroom are still high. I am so proud of them each and everyday! They always give me something to SMILE about!
We are having a wonderful time with our 4K BUDDIES several times a month. We have had a gingerbread hunt with them, read stories, created projects, and just spent time with them. They are always excited to spend time with together. I am impressed in how they interact with them and how they are always concerned for their buddy.

Epic.com 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.
Plastic Scoop Rockers
Found on Amazon or also found at Fleet Farm for $5.99
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.
