My Students

I am so fortunate to have a class of third grade gifted students and what makes me even happier is that the majority of them were in my second grade class last year! This means we hit the ground running at the beginning of this school year. They knew my expectations and I knew their strengths and weaknesses. In addition, the parents and I also started out with a great rapport that began last school year.

These students are blessed with the ability to learn new material easily and retain most of what they learn.

This is great; but also a challenge for me. Because they are so inquisitive and constantly looking for new information, I find I am always trying to meet their needs. They learn quickly and need supplemental materials to keep them involved.

My students are frequently investigating new ideas. They make daily trips to the media center and read voraciously. My classroom library is overflowing, but since I had these same students last year I would love to be able to offer them something new and engaging!

My Project

After the grade level standards are met, this class has a lot of time on their hands. They need supplemental readings such as magazines and science-based games to keep them engaged and learning.

Imagine the joy on their faces when they have new materials to devour with their brains!

These students "eat up" the school issued curriculum and need more. Many of them come to school with definite interests that they want to study. By having regularly delivered magazines, they can pursue those timely interests.

The science based game boxes will provide another avenue to practice memorization; and it's fun.
