How many of you wondered about that student in your class? Is he/she gifted? How would you know? When I was teaching grade 4, I found this list of characteristics helpful in deciding if I should nominate my students to be considered for the gifted program. I printed this sheet out and inserted it in each student portfolio I had created and would observe to see if some of these characteristics were present. Please note that this is not an all encompassing list and that not all of these characteristics need to be present. I hope it helps you as it has helped me. Just click on the link below!
