Meet Your Teacher

Welcome to Pre-K4!! I am Ms. Murphy and I am so excited to begin this year in Pre-K4! While I know this year will be different and challenging I am confident we will have a great year filled with lots of learning, fun, and social and emotional growth. This is my 15th year teaching in Catholic School and my 9th year teaching here at Saint Ignatius. I have taught both Kindergarten and Pre-K4 and love being able to set the foundation for learning. I believe every child learns their own way and structure my classroom to make sure this is met on a daily basis. There is nothing we cannot face together and I know this year will be wonderful, so enjoy every moment and be prepared to watching learning and growing first hand with us!



Important Reminders/ Needs


In light of the recent COVID updates, we are following new protocols to keep the children safe. Some of the things we will be doing is extra hand washing, staying in our seats, splitting in groups for eating for 15 minutes and playing outside with 6 feet protocol. We ask that you please remember to send in an extra mask or two for your child, so we can change them if they were to get wet, dirty, etc. Also, we ask that you please send them in with a book to help make transition periods a lot easier for them. Since we are eating in 15 minute time periods, simplifying their healthy snack and lunch would help us greatly. For example, cut up apples, bananas, and packaged crackers. We thank you for all of your help with this! Since we are doing extra cleaning and wiping down in the classroom, if you are able to send in disinfecting wipes or spray we would greatly appreciate it.

Since we are trying to keep our classroom as safe as possible, we will be following all guidelines for travel. If you travel outside of PA, when you return you will have to either quarantine or be tested after the given timeline. This travel includes our bordering states, such as New Jersey , Delaware and Maryland. Please remember this is to keep our school family safe and your children able to come to school. Thank you for all of your help with this!

Week of May 17th to the 21st



This week we will continue to work hard in Pre-K as we get closer and closer to the End of the Year. It is so hard to believe how fast time has gone and I am so proud of how hard your children have worked in the classroom! We are still watering our garden here at school and hope you are enjoying their planting boxes at home. It was great watching your children learn about growing hands- on through discovery of their own.


We will begin our very last letter of the week this week as we work with the Letter Zz. We will talk about the sound of Zz, how to write it and how to identify things that begin with Zz. We will be having Show and Tell for the Letter Zz on Thursday so make sure to send in your clues and your Show and Tell hidden in a bag.


In Religion, we will talk about how God Gives us Butterflies. We will use this time to remember how God gives us many things that change into beautiful things.


Our Math Lessons will center around comparing our numbers and beginning to add groups together. A lot of this work will be done through hands-on adding and joining so do not be surprised if there are not a lot of work coming home.


In ELA we will be practicing sequence as we learn about butterflies. We will be reading many stories, responding to literature and working with our kid-writing. On Friday, we will be having BINGO DAY to help support the 8th Grade. I will be sending home a letter about this for you to know what to send in. Thanks so much for all your help!!
