Gifted and Talented

Welcome to the Gifted and Talented program 

at Fullerton Magnet Elementary!

Students are identified for the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program by looking at many components.  Formal assessments such as InView, MAP, and NeSA, help us to identify high ability and gifted students for the GATE program.  Students who have qualified for the GATE program can be served in a number of ways through direct and indirect instruction. 


Direct services include specialized instruction or independent projects with the gifted facilitator and are designed for students who score in the high ability or gifted range.   

Indirect services are the result of teamwork between the GATE facilitator, school staff and administration to support the gifted/high ability student.  This might include testing, materials and curriculum collaboration, or enhancement of grade level content standards to meet the needs of each gifted/high ability student.

Multi-Subject Websites for Gifted Kids

  • – Organized by grade level from K-5, so would be appropriate for gifted kids starting around age 3. I like when websites are organized by age/grade because then we can just hop up about 2 grades/levels and we’re usually at a good starting point. This website has some fantastic content and games – spelling bee games, word searches, sight words, typing and keyboarding games, math bingo, geography games, and more.
  • Enchanted Learning – Definitely a must visit for crafty kids.  I have used the printable worksheets from this site for both of my kids from age 2 and up.  We use it constantly even today… definitely spring for the membership if you can afford it. (Also great for toddlers and preschoolers)
  • Freerice – Answer questions to end world hunger!
  • World Book for Kids – Articles, illustrations, games, activities, dictionary, and atlas
  • Where’s Waldo? – Online version of the classic Waldo books
  • Time for Kids – Multi-subject activities, worksheets, printable quizzes and more for K-6, from the publishers of Time Magazine

Reading, Spelling, and Writing Websites and Games for Gifted Students

  • Online Spelling Bees – Fun!
  • Rainbow magic – Games and activities based on the Rainbow Magic series – Lucy’s favorite chapter books in Kindergarten!
  • Little Monkey Tales – Short stories suitable for young children
  • Raz Kids –  Lucy’s younger sister who is in Kindergarten is in a gifted cluster classroom and the school purchased Raz Kids for reading.  It’s been a HUGE hit for a reluctant (yet fluent) reader in Kindergarten.  Kids work at their own pace and earn stars, take quizzes, and earn ranking.  Lucy’s sister is trying to “outdo” her classmates in reading – so it’s great for the natural competitive drive that many gifted kids have!
