X-Marks the Spot Research ProjectThis week all of the grade 4s and 5s had at least some time to work on the X-Marks the Spot research project. Students are investigating famous people, places or things associated with treasure. Once students have gathered their information they will be putting it together in a format to present to their peers. More on this in the weeks ahead!
World of Treasure SlideshowThe grade 1 - 3s have also been busy doing research for their 'World of Treasures' slideshow. Students are searching for images and information on a wide variety of 'treasures'. The images and information are being added to collaborative slideshows. Students have found images and information on some of the following:
- gems (emeralds, topaz, diamonds)
- treasure chests
- shipwrecks (e.g. the Titanic)

December 1st to 4th--Last Week of Classes Before the Winter BreakGifted Program classes will wrap up the week of December 1st to 4th and resume again in January. The classes wrap up a few weeks prior to winter break in order to let students fully participate in any special activities that may be going on in their classroom or school. It also provides me time to assess students who have been referred to the Gifted Program.
Thanks for checking out what we did... This Week In Gifted!
