2nd grade Cogat & Iowa Testing

2nd Grade Parents: During the week of October 17th-20th, your children will be taking the Cognitive Aptitude Test (CogAT) & Iowa Assessments. Please make sure students get plenty of sleep and eat a nutritious breakfast each morning. These assessments are used to qualify for gifted and talented identification and possible admission to the Charles Townes Center Program here at Sterling School. If at all possible, do not schedule medical or other appointments on these days. We encourage all students to arrive on time so testing can begin on time. Please contact your child's teacher or Mrs. Harris with any questions.

New for our Primary Grades... Zones of Regulation

Zones of regualtion

Zones is used to teach self-regulation by labeling all the different ways we feel and states of alertness we experience into four zones. The Zones curriculum provides strategies to teach students to become more aware of their emotions, improve controlling their emotions and impulses, managing their sensory needs, and improving their ability to problem solve conflicts.

Please Note: No zone is good or bad, by identifying the zone students are in, they will better be able to verbalize what they *need* to be successful!

You can learn more at Zones of Regulation.
