TPSP Reveal

All grade levels were able to discover their TPSP projects this week through a mystery. Ask your GT learner what they will be doing. :-) Every student needs to bring a composition notebook and a 1 inch binder if they haven't yet. Don't worry if you haven't yet. Just send as soon as you can. (Parent disclaimer- If you are checking your email at night after you got all of your kids in bed and your student goes to GT with me Monday morning, it is ok NOT to go to the store. I wouldn't either.) The binders will act as our take home folder for GT and where we will keep our TPSP calendar so you know where we are. The calendars can change throughout so you could see changes as we continue our journey.

We will begin the research portions of both projects to begin our journey. I am very excited about all of the opportunities for cross grade level collaboration these topics will provide!

Chain Reaction

We started the year off in GT by learning how we are all connected. We talked a lot about the characteristics of a chain and how each link makes the chain stronger. We took turns sharing things about ourselves and connecting to things others said. This activity was more powerful than I could have even imagined. I think this activity really helped to empower them to see and believe they belong. We are all CONNECTED as you see in the picture. Go TEAM!
