NAGC Mile Marker Series

The National Association for Gifted Children ( NAGC) is a great resource for information on addressing the needs of gifted and talented children. One of their resources for parents is the Mile Marker Series. There is a preview of the CD available for free (preview). This is an excellent place to start learning about the GT label, what it means, and how to help develop your child's potential.

We are busy working to finish projects. Third grade is in the middle of the unit, Journeys and Destinations. They are working hard to finish a study of the book, The Green Book. Fourth grade is working on their website for the unit, At The Mall. The website shows their creativity and their algebraic abilities. Fifth grade is working on the unit, Autobiographies. They are writing an autobiographical essay and studying Children's authors. We are very busy finalizing the semester.

It doesn't seem possible but with testing and other end of the year activities, SPACE students only have five more SPACE days as of April 1. We are working hard to complete what we can, but our time together is short. It never seems that I get enough time to work with your students. Both the children and I have so many ideas for learning!

Thank you to all the parents and children who helped make me feel special during teacher appreciation week. Your kindness is greatly appreciated.
