Welcome to Mrs. White's Toll Gate Webpage!
This year, I will be supporting our 2nd graders, 4th graders, and 5th graders with the GO MATH program. At the beginning of the school year, your homeroom teacher and I will run a few Math assessments to determine who might benefit from extra support in Math this year. The assessments will also help us determine which of the students who received support last year might be ready to join their homerooms for Math this year. I'll be in touch!
Also, I will continue to lead "Thinking Skills" classes with our 1st and 2nd Graders using the PETS curriculum (http://www.primaryeducationthinkingskills.com) from https://piecesoflearning.com. Primary Education Thinking Skills or PETS™ is a systematized enrichment and diagnostic thinking skills program. Lessons are presented in convergent analysis, divergent synthesis, visual/spatial thinking, and evaluation. The program aligns to the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. At the end of each unit, the 1st and 2nd graders will bring home the packets they used to learn about Thinking Skills.
Looking forward to another great school year at Toll Gate!
