Gifted and Talented classes are going quite well at the Horizons Center this school year, and I'd like to send out a heartfelt thank you to all the parents who've allowed their children to attend classes here this school year! You and the wonderful kids you share with me have made this a great school year thus far!
We will begin independent study projects about different countries and cultures in January. The students are quite excited about learning new things! This project will involve more intense strategies in all curricular areas and will be more challenging for the students in my class!
At the culmination of this unit, we will have a cultural "Fiesta" to wrap up this unit. Parents are welcomed to participate as well as attend this event.
I will send letters home when we are nearing the end requesting volunteers to bring in dishes from the country/culture their child is studying or any other materials (such as native clothing, jewelry, educational tools etc.) that will bring meaning to the celebration.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
