The Fourth Grade Gifted and Talented ( GT ) Boys
(Kellogg, ID USA)
In Speech and Language Services we do many things to increase a students ability to communicate. Last year the GT Boys, there are 4 of them, came to Speech class with Dodekahedrons. Of course every one wanted to learn how to fold them!
Some of us figured it out through the communication skills of the GT Boys and others couldn't, but, luckily I had been to this wonderful site and there were things that my other students could do with as much, if not more communication skills. There were many aspects of education that the Boys talked about while using correct production of their sounds such as math, folding skills, following directions, understanding directions and much, much, more. Thanks for an opportunity for teaching important skills!
