Our students are identified as gifted and advanced learners. One day a week they come to our classroom for specialized and individualized learning opportunities. This is a time in the school week for students to extend their strengths, creativity, and develop new areas of critical thinking.
We love our students' excitement and motivation to learn new and challenging curriculum.
By reaching these students, we are fostering a love of learning and developing future innovators and creators. Building the mosaics and working with the Rubik's cube fosters perservence and a growth mindset.
This project will benefit two of our grade levels and we will be able to reuse these resources for years to come. Our fifth grade students are involved in a study of global issues and concerns. The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind is a true story of a boy in Africa who helped save his village by inventing a solution for electricity and water. Our fourth grade students are studying surviving in a variety of situations. The students have a choice of novels Shipwreck At The Bottom of the World, The War That Saved My Life, and My Side of the Mountain. This project will provide books for students that may not be able to purchase their own.
Our students are the leaders of the future!
We are working on becoming global citizens, buiding empathy for others and learning about issues beyond our own backyards.
