I am new to Cubits and found it thanks to my great gardening friends. We have two children, one of which tested gifted last fall. The other is too young to test as of yet but is showing sure signs. I would like to start a group of parents that have experience in the gifted area so we can share our ideas, ask questions, and work to support each other. I look forward to hearing from you!

Had one who gave me a run for my money. Her grade school had, amazingly, enough to make a grade 3-4 class of these children. It was an amazing experience for my daughter. Being self starters they accomplished so much more being in this class.

From there she went into a straight regular 5th grade class and started failing. Go figure. But the school worked with her and got her help and at 40 she has 6 years of college created . . can never think of what that extra degree is called . . Masters?

We agreed to have a big party for that if she promised us she wasn't going to become a professional student. lol

We feel blessed that our children are doing well and, most importantly . . . love the Lord.

Thanks for popping in and sharing! Our dd is 7 and will be going into 2nd in the fall. Unfortunately, her school does not have very many gifted students or the money to properly fund a good program. We do what we can to supplement what she is not getting at school and I am eager but cringing to find out who her teacher will be next year. She absolutely loves reading but gets irritated with me when I make her pick up a chapter book Rolling my eyes. We just got back from the library that is doing an awesome summer reading program so she more willing to read the longer ones at the moment.

Congrats to your daughter! I giggle at the thought of her being a professional student, my husband wanted to do that! Too funny! We are indeed blessed with our children and want to do what we can with the gift our Lord has given to us!!

In those special classes the parents helped out a lot; it was so appreciated by all of us. I don't know much about it but would home schooling work?

We thought about home schooling but I am not sure I would do well enough by her. I really need to get my degree as well but the GI Bill doesn't cover online classes and we are depending on that right now thanks to the economy around here. I do plan on being in her classroom as much as possible next year, rumor has it the one teacher that is remaining for 2nd grade does not have good recommendations and they are bringing in two new teachers. All we can do at this point, school wise, is pray and make sure the lines of communication stay open between our children and us!
