My Students

We are a class of 16 Gifted and Talented 3rd graders! Our students come from all over the school district to attend our school and be in the SALTA (Supporting Advanced Learners Toward Achievement) program. Students must TEST and qualify to be in this Gifted and Talented class. The two tests they are given are the CogAT and the Iowa-E. The CogAT is a cognitive ability test that measures thinking processes and reasoning ability. The Iowa-E is an achievement test that measures what students already know in the areas of Math, Reading, Social Studies, and Science at their grade-level. This is my class! They are extremely special students!

They LOVE being back in school, being around friends, learning together, and interacting.

Most of them have been remote home learning off and on since the middle of their first grade year in school. They have social emotional deficits which need to be addressed. They have high academic and intellectual requirements that need to be addressed. These are bright minds that need to be engaged!

My Project

My project reflects the variety of needs I have in my Gifted and Talented 3rd grade classroom.

First, I am in need of specific materials that are motivating to Gifted and Talented students and allow these bright creative students to be able to share what they know and learn thru class presentations, productions, demonstrations and concerts, and stay motivated to learn and produce.

Many have been home playing video games during Covid and prefer that when compared to reading or putting in effort at school!

To help motivate and pique their gifted minds, we use project based learning thru monthly Genius Hour Passion Projects, creative group projects, and weekly subject specific projects. They love to share their creative endeavors of playwriting, acting, music composing, and film making with the class which is why I am requesting presentation remotes, digital and video cameras, microphone, etc. This will allow them to have classroom equipment for their own use and learning, instead of me doing a lot of the production work with my personal iPhone or iPad.

Second, I am requesting basic writing and publishing tools (pens, pencils, markers, pencil sharpeners, etc) because my students love to WRITE! They write and publish their own stories, plays, and songs, and are always in need of basic supplies to keep that going at our project table. Also we would love to have a new award winning novel to read all together in our comfy new bean bag chairs.

Third, being new to the district, my class needs Social Emotional Classroom Tools for a Calming Corner (fidget spinner, stress balls, water timers, etc) because over half my class has anxiety issues and/or social emotional needs due to Covid related stressors and schedules and lack of social experiences.
