Ever think, gifted kids who skip a grade do not adjust well socially?
The Gift of Tips:
For gifted students suffering from poor organizational skills, requiring the use of agendas to record assignments and getting them in the habit of using assignment folders to take and bring back assignments can set them on the road to organizational success.
For gifted students needing some social skills polishing, direct instruction and actively encouraging and practicing social skills like maintaining eye contact and smiling through role play can help these simple etiquettes be internalized. You are what you do!
For gifted students struggling with time management, using and referring to class schedules can help impart the habit of using schedules. Enlisting parents to also establish a regular homework time can also further reinforce this learning.
