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

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."
