Gifted and Talented News 6
By Lenora Barnes 10/14/16
Due to a variety of events this week, I was only able to meet with some of the classes. The students began class with picture puzzles for the warm-up activity. The students were then challenged to use problem solving to complete "Noodlers", which are puzzles that are designed to enhance spatial and visual skills and promote flexible thinking. This week we continued to read and discuss our class read aloud books. The students spent the last part of the class time coding. The students used code.org to work at their level. Some of the students were beginners and others, who have been in the class for two years, were almost finished with Course 3.

The Dualities of Giftedness Part 5
The child who observes keenly and is responsive to new ideas may also be the child who sees too much or becomes inpatient.
- The child who has a keen sense of humor may also be the child who uses humor inappropriately to gain attention or attack others; becomes the class clown; or is disruptive.
- The child who is sensitive, empathic, or emotional may also be the child who takes things personally; is easily hurt or upset; feels powerless to solve the world's problems, becomes anxious, fearful, and sad; or has trouble handling criticism or rejection
