Music with Mrs. Murphy

Hello everyone! This is our last full week of school for the 2019-2020 school year! You made it! This will also be our last week of assignments for music. I hope you all have a fabulous summer and I can’t wait until we are learning together in person again this fall.

This week we are exploring the music of West Africa!

Email me or contact me with Seesaw and tell me about what you learned about the music of West Africa this week! You can even send me a picture or a video clip of you interacting with the materials! Reach me at murphyc@issaquah.wednet.edu!

Don’t forget, if you finish this week’s activities and want to keep exploring music, you can find many more enrichment activities for all grades on my website. You can even login to Quaver through Clever to access the Student Portal and explore countless music related games, compositions, and activities!

Greetings from Ms. Caulton in the Virtual Music Room!

Why did you choose this one?

What makes it different from the others?

  • After learning more, did you like it more, or less?

Library Update with Mrs. Skosky

Week 12 - Summer Reading!

Endeavour Jaguars! I feel like this at home learning went by really slowly but also really fast... I really enjoyed being your library teacher this year and I CAN'T WAIT to be in the library with you again soon! I hope you have a fantastic summer and of course, read a lot of books!

To help with Summer reading, please feel free to take a look at the attached PDFs below. They were curated by the Association for Library Services for Children and have a lot of recently published books. Many of these books are on my "to read" list as well! I hope you enjoy and I can't wait to hear about all the good books you read in the Summer sunshine :)
