We had a great time in G/T math!  We tested our toothpick bridges and EVERYONE'S bridge was successful!  They were able to withstand the wait of 6 chapter books and a book basket!  We also dabbled a little in some logic puzzles and brain teaser games.  Primary G/T is over for the year.  Thanks for sharing your kids with me on Thursday mornings!

Each year schools in St. Vrain Valley School District complete a process to identify students in grades K-12 who demonstrate exceptional ability or performance in one or more academic areas and may therefore qualify for Gifted/Talented educational services.  These students perform at least two years above grade level in their strength area(s) and require additional academic challenges in order to support their continued educational growth and progress.  In addition, they usually demonstrate characteristics of unique creativity and high motivation in their strength areas.
