3rd Grade GT Math

 Math Kids

       For students identified for Gifted & Talented services in Mathematics in GISD
 

3rd Grade GT Math:

bullet3rd Grade GT Math follows the GISD Scope and Sequence for 3rd Grade & most of 4th Grade Math while using the "Think Math" curriculum (3rd Grade  GT Math THINKMATH).  Students also have weekly "Slip" problems and Chapter Projects to challenge their problem solving skills.
 
bulletOur Goal is to challenge our GT students.  GT students are not often challenged enough, and therefore tend to "shut down" when a challenge does arrive.  Challenges can be frustrating, but are very important to mental & emotional development.  It is our goal to get these students used to challenges so that they have the skills necessary to pursue any challenge or interest that comes their way.  (Any future doctors, lawyers, scientists, or engineers out there???)
