TRUE COLORS

Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders recently took the True Colors Personality test to find out more about themselves. We found the information very interesting. Once we knew more about what each color represented, along with what color we were, we set goals for the year. Click on the button below to see our projects. You will find out what color your child is and what that means.

Multiple Intellegences

In 1st and 2nd grade we had a discussion about how different people feel, about the word “smart”. We talked about the many different ways of being smart. Students completed a Multiple Intelligence survey to identify their personal intelligence. Students graphed their Multiple Intelligence from the results of their survey. After that, they drew a self-portrait and found visual images that represented their multiple intelligence and their strongest “smarts”. Our portraits will be hanging in our classroom if you want to come check them out!

REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

We use so much "stuff" in Gates to create projects, we are constantly turning trash to treasure. Please look in your recycling bins for any odds and ends that you think might spark the imagination of our kiddos. We also need boxes, paper towel or toilet paper tubes, plastic jugs, etc. Please wash the items before sending them to school.
