Reminder - GA Aquarium Field Trip - April 18 - April 19.
List It - We started the day playing a game similar to Scattergories. I give the class a topic and as quickly as possibly, they create a list of items related to the category. At the end we share answers. If someone has your item, all students who have said item must eliminate the item. Today's topics - Things related to
2. Black History Month
Ona Judge, a slave who escaped George Washington, was on my BHM list, and none of the children had heard of her. Therefore, I shared her story. If you're interested:
Creative Writing - Each student was given a story prompt, and students were expected to continue the story. The catch - include 5 random words selected from a cup. Most students performed on 2nd grade level whereas a few exceeded a 2nd grader's creative writing. Ask to read your child's story. Please note: I mostly evaluated creative writing and story development.
Next week we'll be back to full day of gifted.
