This boy was so sharp as well as a child with Aspbergers.
They both knew multiplication, long division, fractionss
probability. They knew how to work with square roots.So I
taught them harder multiplication and long division. I also
gave them some logical thinking projects They worked on the
projects together. They knew how to reduce fractions, etc.
I told them to write some word problems for the students in
class. Then we work on them. That was kinda ok. One day I
had to step outof the roomfor a moment.My GATE kid was at
the front of the room going over a division problem with
the class. He was reviewing the steps of long division. He
was having them answer as a group while giving them wait
time. Just like I do. The kids lovedit andcommented on how
he could bethe new teacher. He did a great job.
I'm aformer special ed teacher who workedprimarily
withswtudents who had leaqrning disabilties. I can get any
low student to read but feel inadequate when it comes rto
the GATe kids.
What can I do to make school more challening for them? BTW
when I gave him projects to do he didn't put much effort
Need help for next year. Don't wantto go in without a plan.
sorry about thetyping my catis sleeping on my right arm!
