Mrs. Gause's Home

My name is Jascelyn Gause and I am excited to be at Tomball Intermediate School. This is my 7th year teaching. Previously I taught 8th grade science for 2 years and 5th grade science and social studies for 4 years. I received a BS in forensic science from Baylor University in 2007 and a M.Ed in instructional leadership from Sam Houston State University in 2018. I have been married for 7 years to my awesome husband, Jason, and we have a 5 year old daughter, Journey. In my spare time, I enjoy sleeping, shopping, and traveling. I look forward to working with you this school year!

Science and Social Studies Update

Happy Friday!

Grades are posted for the science test. If it is blank, that means they need to take or finish the test.
I am working on grading the National Symbols and create a map assignments. If your student has not turned them in, they have until Monday to get them to me or they will be a 0. I follow the Tomball ISD late work policy in that I will not accept work after 3 days late, so this will be last exception. These assignments will be 30 points off of the grade due to it being late.

Our next unit for science is thermal and light energy (reflection and refraction). This is often a fun unit with lots of activities for students to do! In social studies, we are working on exploration and colonization.

Thursday, Sept. 26- Jamestown and Plymouth Sensory Men Due

Friday, Sept. 27- MELTS/Reflection Quiz

We have already discussed the create a map mini project and we will discuss the national symbols project on Thursday. Both assignments are due on Monday at the end of class. Students will be given plenty of class time to work on both so there should be limited time spent on them at home.

Thursday, Sept. 5 Update

Happy Thursday!

We are working hard today and tomorrow on science and social studies stations. For science we are focusing on mass, matter and density and next week we will focus on mixtures and solutions. For social studies, we are working on our regions map and next week we will discuss national symbols.

Please make sure your student can log in to their google account at home. If you need assistance, please refer to my previous post for directions. This is great for review material, absent work, and making sure their notebook is up to date.
