Degrees and Certifications:
Dear Future Muldowney student,
I am so excited to start the new year and it is still the beginning of summer. Let me start off by letting you know that it is going to be a fantastic year. We have so many things planned for the year. I will be teaching you math and science and Mrs. Mackey will be teaching you Language Arts and Social Studies.
I hope you enjoy hands on learning because we will be learning math and science by using skills we are learning in centers and group activities. For math, we work on skills in centers so we could practice the skills being learned. It is a fun way to gain mastery and it gives me a chance to work with each of you on a daily basis in a small group setting. Some of the math centers will have you creating a playground and buying equipment for a school yard. It is a great way to practice area and perimeter, as well as, adding/subtracting money. We will also be planning dinners to give us practice with measuring and buying items, planning trips using elapsed time and creating interactive calendars. You might be happy because this year my students informed me that we only used the math text book as a reference tool and not as a learning tool.
In science, get ready to do a lot of experiments. We will be creating cells out of food items, making ice cream, using predictions when doing research and we will even look at our own cells through a microscope. There are so many fun and interesting units of study in science. I hope you are ready to become scientists.
If you look at the year in pictures link, you will get to see some of the great things we did last year. I can't wait to start the year. I hope you are ready for an incredible and exciting year. Please email me if you have any questions about the upcoming year.
Looking forward to meeting you,
