My school supports a Self-Contained, Gifted classroom at each grade level, first through sixth. This special class is designed for students who are approximately two or more years above their grade level peers, and embrace a rigorous, fast pace learning environment. The students have opportunities to work cooperatively, and independently throughout the curriculum. My students are creative, thoughtful, and get energized through hands on, discovery learning. They eagerly enter the classroom each morning, and immediately check our agenda to see what we'll focus on today! One characteristic of a Gifted student is that their mind is in constant motion. As a result, their bodies, unconsciously, are also in motion, to keep rhythm with their thoughts. I witness swinging feet, fidgetiness, and standing, as students complete assignments. I have dedicated students who thrive on learning; however, they need tools to help them make the mind-body connection. Their minds are gifts and their bodies want to keep up.
