Some Kids Just do it Differently



Have you intense 1 precocious 2 or complex 3

kids in your room?

  1. ardent, heartfelt 
  2. having developed earlier than normal 
  3. complicated; having many parts 

They share an intense desire to know and understand; total absorption when their interest is caught; often have unexpected questions, ideas and solutions; reluctance to complete repetitive or basic work.

These are attributes that can be difficult to cater for in the standard classroom programme, for any teacher of a mixed ability class, and are reasons why educational opportunities and approaches differentiated for gifted children matter.

I also find this page on characteristics that are "normal for gifted" extremely useful.
