1. It may sound cliche, but for many gifted kids the Math Club is their first introduction to team spirit, competitive environment, and positive feedback that says being smart is a great thing! Math clubs in Elementary schools are not common, but there is no reason you couldn't start one. For middle school kids, MathCounts is a great program which has been around for about 30 years. It encourages learning creative math skills and thinking fast, with both group and individual competitions at local, state, and national levels. They provide materials for the kids to practice and learn. If your middle school hasn't got a MathCounts group, chat with the math teacher and see if you can help to start one!
Handwriting is complex perceptual-motor skill that is dependent upon the maturation and integration of a number of cognitive, perceptual and motor skills, and is developed through instruction (Hamstra-Bletz and Blote, 1993; Maeland, 1992). While a plethora of information exists in lay and professional literature about many of the common problems experienced by school age children, difficulty with handwriting is often overlooked and poorly understood. Students with graphomotor problems are frequently called "lazy", "unmotivated" and/or "oppositional" because they are reluctant to produce written work. Many times, these are the children who dislike school the most. Because they are sometimes able to write legibly if they write slowly enough, they are accused of writing neatly "when they want to". This statement has moral implications and is untrue; for children with graphomotor problems, neat handwriting at a reasonable pace is often not a choice.
Remember your child will never rise higher than their self-esteem allows. As parents we have a tremendous amount of power and obligation to help them reach their full potential and beyond. Our children are a reflection of who we are and our own works of art. Let's teach them that they are masterpieces.Depending on the area where you live, elementary and middle schools may have computers and laptops in their classrooms. This has had several positive impacts for students, such as allowing them to start using technology at an early age as well as giving them an additional way to learn in class. Students are also able to get more of their homework done at school instead of at home by being able to do research and assignments online. There has been one negative aspect to having computers in class and that is when a small handful of kids try to play unblocked games at school.
