Recordable Music Lessons


Historic Lessons


Nassakeag Elementary School fourth-graders in Jennifer Betz’s class stepped back in time to showcase historic figures from the Revolutionary War time period in a school Living Wax Museum.

As part of the project, the students selected an individual who made a significant impact during this time frame and studied their biographical information.

On the day of the museum, they dressed up as the individual they studied and pretended to be set in wax until a visitor pushed their activation buttons. Once these buttons were pushed, the students came to life and shared their research speaking in the first-person.

Pitch-Perfect Performances


Student-musicians from Minnesauke and Nassakeag elementary schools had the chance to showcase their talents on the regional stage when they took to center field and performed at the Long Island Ducks Stadium this May. The crowd was in awe of their abilities and greeted them with boisterous rounds of applause.

Muffins with Mom

Nassakeag Elementary School kindergartners in Rebecca D’Agostino’s class helped to celebrate Mother’s Day in a spirited way this May by hosting an event they called “Muffins with Mom.”

During the event, the students read the books they created about their honorees, sang songs and recited a poem. The class also showcased a video they created, describing what makes their mom special. At the end, they enjoyed taking commemorative pictures and a tasty treat of muffins and tea.

Studying Egypt

After learning about ancient Egypt, sixth-grade students in Robyn Weinstein’s class at Nassakeag Elementary School created projects to share with their classmates.

The students used their knowledge about ancient Egypt to design games, books and crossword puzzles that featured key facts about the region, as well as baked Egyptian bread to give their classmates a taste of the culture.

The hands-on project called for the class to deploy their creativity, cooperation and critical thinking skills.
