Keep Gifted Kids Challenged

To keep young gifted children challenged, you can go faster through core subjects, but it can be easier to go wider, and experience many different subjects.  This can help you to feed their desire to learn more, but without the negatives that come with material that is above their maturity level.

Keep Gifted Kids Challenged

Here are some options for you to consider to keep your gifted kids challenged.

Building Thinking Skills, book 1, 2, and 3 are reproducible books that develop critical thinking skills in reading, writing, math and science. My kids thought they were fun - like doing a crossword puzzle or something. I don't usually recommend every book from Critical Thinking Press, because some feel too "schoolish" for me, but we did like these books when we used them.

Building Thinking Skills Book 1- elementary

Building Thinking Skills Book 2 - middle school

Building Thinking Skills Book 3 Verbal- high school

Building Thinking Skills Book 3 Figural - high school

Logic and Latin are great for keeping thinkers thinking!

If your child is geeky, try to find an intensive program that can let them learn at their level while competing in the field.

 And remember that anything your child loves can be encouraged at the high school level, and you can put it on your high school transcript, even if you didn't intentionally teach it as a "class."
