GT at Village

Spring 2019

Field Trip for 1st and 2nd grades

On Thursday, April, 25th the 1st & 2nd grade Gifted and Talented students will be spending the day at the Waco Zoo!

All students will be meeting in the back “bus” lane at Cooper Elementary at 7:40 a.m. and leaving promptly at 8:00 a.m. Your child needs to be there by 7:40 to load the bus. We need to come up with a plan to make sure all students are able to get to Cooper on time. More information to come...

Math Challenge Event

We have been working very hard at learning new strategies and practicing our Math Challenge games. I am very pleased with the progress the students have been making with becoming strategic players and their competitiveness. While all of our classes (1st-5th) have been learning and playing the games, only grades 3-5 will be competing in the district competition.

Location has been set- McCoy Elementary, however the date is tentative- Thursday, May 9th. This event is after school for a couple of hours. I missed it last year, but I am looking forward to Village really showing them what we can do!

Learning in Action

Science Fair is Thursday, February 21! **I encourage all GT students to participate in this event.

Rubik's Cubes!!

We had a great time with some borrowed Rubik's cubes last semester, Thanks to Mrs. Rogers (5th grade). I have just received our classes' borrowed set!!! We have 2X2, 3X3, and 4X4 to investigate!! I am so excited to see what we do with these.

Our class does not have any Rubik's cubes of our own. If you are interested in donating any cubes for our class it would greatly appreciated. I would love to have 10 or so just for our class to have all the time. Any of the dimensions.
