The End of the Year Gifted Program video links have been added as an attachment to this page for grades K - 3. You can view the links for each video and save to your computer or forward to a family member if you choose. So glad you were able to attend the program.
The year is quickly wrapping up but we are not done yet! We are still completing lots of fun and engaging lessons and activities in our classes. Recent class times have been adjusted slightly due to state testing, and we'll be back on a normal schedule soon.
Some recent activities have been:
Kindergarten and First Grade: Teamwork: create a rainbow paper chain using a pattern and creativity; Connecting literature to themes by creating wordless stories using stamps; Math Rules lessons, Riddles, and beginning analogies
Second Grade: Teamwork: build a trap out of provided materials to catch a “leprechaun”; Inventions: create art, a game and rules to accompany based on the concept of circles; Strategy and math activities using Math Rules lessons and digit decoding
Third Grade: Teamwork: build a parachute out of selected materials to help “Jack” out of the beanstalk; Publisher brochures for foreign country research projects, and paper airplanes (building, flying, improving, and explaining); Math Rules lessons and Multiplication Mosaics
Below are links to on-line resources full of great ideas and activities to engage your gifted child.
