My Students

Gifted learners are often misunderstood. They do not take one form and that’s what makes them so unique. To grow our gifted pull-out program, they need resources that are proven to engage gifted minds and build higher-order critical thinking skills.

A hallmark of a true gifted student is their willingness to think outside of the box and, without the right curriculum, this ability is squandered.

Our STEAM based school is Title I with 40% African American, 30% Hispanic, and 30% Caucasian. My learners are just as diverse as the population at the school; there is no one type of gifted child.

My Project

Gifted learners need to be challenged constantly, which is why the Osmo system and games such as Coding Jam, Coding Awbie and the Pizza Co. is a great investment for our classroom. The best part of this is that the Osmo system is very collaborative so students can work together and build social skills at the same time!

Learners can be inspired to think outside of the box and challenged to create and design, while using coding, math, and language arts skills.

It is my hope that we can continually expand our collection to include more bases and “games,” but this will help us get our feet wet and the students interested.
