Mrs. Steffen's GATE Classes
Is it really October already?
This month, students will begin a new Habit of Mind - Managing Impulsivity. If your child's class has started using calendars to assess each habit, he or she will be bringing a completed one home for September. Any day that is marked with an X, is one where he or she was either absent, we didn't have class, or grades were not given. Feel free to contact me with questions about any rubric scores. Remember , the target score is a 3!
Important October Dates
Oct. 6 - Stride Night for Pre-K and K
Oct. 8 - Math Night for Grades 1-5
Oct. 16 - No school - Association Day
Oct. 20 - Crazy Hair Day
GATE Goings On
We will be starting an exploration into the human brain as it relates to structures. They will explore the functions of the brain, how it works, and what it is responsible for. We will answer the question of how knowing about the brain will make you a better student
The students were introduced to the app, "Seesaw", a digital portfolio that allows them to take pictures, write notes and captions, and add files and links. This is a means for them to showcase all the fabulous work they will do this year in GATE.
