Our Genius Hour research is going well with many kids nearly done with their research. Projects will be shared in class on March 14th, so we have 2 class periods left to work.
Divergent and Mathematical Thinking:
We combined our creativity and math abilities to create beautiful Math Mosaics for Valentine's Day. Check them out below!
We used our divergent thinking and communication skills to create our Dreams Poems and a visual to go along with the poem. These will be displayed in our classroom after the Break. I'll send along some pictures!
Finally, we had a very interesting guest speaker today, Mr. Rick Parker, Gifted Lead Teacher from Daniell Middle School. He does an amazing job giving a thorough overview of what Middle School is like for our gifted kids. They learned a lot, asked some great questions, and seem very excited to check it out next year! Here's his Presentation, which includes his contact information. Feel free to reach out to him with questions, even if your child isn't going to Daniell. He's very knowledgeable and helpful!
No HW! Enjoy the Break!
