We have purchased a new curriculum program called thrively to support our gt program here in the district, we are excited about the quality of so many new lessons, but especially the social emotional modules that allow us to have meaningful conversations & interactions regarding their emotional well being. we invite you to check it out and sign up for a free parent account.
7th graders have been enjoying a variety of different gt activities. Mrs. nichols' kiddos have been learning about virtual reality (VR) & design/coding in tinkerkad. mr. braun, one of our fantastic district curriculum specialists, demonstrated NBMS's newest VR addition & all the applications vr can provide for fun & learning!
some of the 7th graders also had fun recording read alouds for county line elementary students for read across america day. they had fun partnering up & choosing picture books that would entertain the younger kiddos. fun was had by all!
8th Grade GT has been working on many different activities for the past couple of months. One activity is the "Silhouette Project". Students picked a person who inspired them to pursue their passions and they created a silhouette to represent them. Some of the people chosen included teachers, piano instructors, scientists, and many other interesting choices.
8th graders have also been able to go to the Library on B Day Fridays. Down in the library, students have participated in a variety of Brain Teaser Trivia & Even Escape Rooms. On the Friday before Spring Break, students were solving a St. Patrick's Day Escape Room. you can see them prepping for Spring Break below!
