My Students

I teach first grade gifted and talented. My students are a very diverse group of children. They come from many different cultural backgrounds. They are eager to learn and it's difficult, if not impossible, to develop the talent of a highly able student with insipid curriculum and instruction. Like all students, gifted learners need learning experiences that are rich. They need content that is relevant to their lives, activities that cause them to process important ideas at a high level, and products that cause them to grapple with meaningful problems. They need classrooms that are engaging that provide both structure and choice and help them achieve more than they thought they could. These are needs shared by all learners. Good teaching for gifted learners is achieved in response to the students' individual needs. Often, highly able students learn more quickly than others their age. As a result, they typically need a more rapid and enriching instruction.

My Project

Gifted and talented students need constant enrichment and engagement in order for them to benefit from the school environment. We are limited to engaging activities and resources in a public school. An OSMO is an excellent resource that uses physical objects and learning tools with an iPad. There is so much versatility and it fosters their learning in key areas such as math, creative and critical thinking, STEM, and the Common Core. My students would love to have a chance to show off their independence and creativity skill by using this interactive tool in the classroom. The benefits would be unmeasurable!
