We used our critical thinking and math strategies to solve a variety of math problems. The kids also learned new concepts in their next Hands On Equations lessons. They are doing very well!
The kids are coming close to finishing their projects. We have two more class periods to work before presenting.
We listened to wonderful picture book, The Barnabus Project, for Read Across America Day. There was such a rich discussion about being different and how we find our way to fit in.
We used our divergent thinking to create our own Misfit Toy. The results were marvelous!
We enjoyed a visit from Mr. Rick Parker, Gifted Lead, at Daniell Middle School. He gave an in-depth overview of Middle School for gifted students. The kids asked a lot of good questions! You can contact him for any Middle School related questions. He is a wealth of information and happy to help.
Until next time,
