We read The One and Only Ivan in Gifted Support. We also do painting and drawing. Mrs. D’Amico is teaching me lots of cool stuff! We use the S.T.E.A.M. activities and equipment from our Penn Manor Education Foundation grant. In Gifted, kids can use creativity and look at the visual perception posters around the room. So that’s the gifted room in third grade.
Please see the Summer Camp / Summer Enrichment tab above for all of the updated information I have received so far. I will update this throughout the Spring as I receive more information.
** There are volunteer opportunities for middle and high school students through the IU. Please go to the IU website and scroll to the bottom.
The AMC 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development of problem-solving skills. The AMC 8 provides an opportunity for middle school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers. Students apply classroom learned skills to unique problem-solving challenges in a low-stress and friendly environment. In 2016, more than 130,000 students from more than 2,000 school nationwide participated.
