Welcome to the GATE website!
We are excited for another great year in our GATE classes. Inside this site you will find information about our classes in general, what we do in our different classes, the snack schedule and other items we find interesting and want to share.
In our GATE classes, the main components of our curriculum are critical thinking skills, creative thinking skills, the scientific method, social processes and research. Often, we refer to these five domains as "The Five Strands." We also model our classroom after the Montessori classroom, which is “child-centered” not teacher centered.
We have met with all of our classes and are off to a great start! We have completed some Getting to Know you Activities, reviewed our rituals and routines, and started our units of study.
