- Two Truths and a Lie - Winter Holiday Edition: In this game everyone writes three sentences about what they did over the holiday. One of the three sentences is a lie! The class listens to each sentence and then guesses which is the lie. This is our traditional activity to do when we return from a long break. It is tons of fun and a great way to learn more about what everyone has been up to.
- Student Self-Reports & GT Report Cards - What an important and effective tool it is to reflect upon your own growth and development! GT students across the district complete a Self Report every nine weeks that requires them to assess their performance, strengths, and areas that need improvement. These reports, as well as the GT Report Card, went home inside the GT folder this week. If you haven't already, please examine the folder and have your child bring it back to school on Monday.
- Trash Bag Create-A-Game - This was a fun way to exercise creative thinking, team-building, and time management. Here are the directions that the GT cuties were given: Each group will be given a trash bag with six items in it. You will have ten minutes to invent a game that uses all six items in some way. After the ten minutes is up we will share each team’s Trash Bag Game. Each member of the team must participate in the sharing presentation. The students used fast thinking, cooperation, and ingenuity to turn items into games. Ask your child what items they had to use and what game their team created.
We have had an excellent week of learning and fun in GT class! Students from all of the grade levels participated in the following activities this week:
