Hello friends! I'm Jennifer from The Blessed Teacher! I teach the third grade gifted cluster at my school. A few years ago, my district moved to the cluster model. Instead of pulling gifted kids out for instruction, all of the kiddos at our grade level that have been identified as gifted learners are in my room. I have 28 stud7 of my students are identified as gifted. One of the things I have struggled with is how to keep these kiddos challenged when we are covering material that already know. Enter extension menus.
Extension menus offer an opportunity to differentiate learning and to reach different learning styles. I offer all of my students the opportunity to work on a menu. In fact, there have been many times that we get to a concept that a good chuck of my students have already mastered, not just my gifted kids.
I created this extension menu for the month of January and I wanted to share it with you Hello Sunshine readers! The extension menu has choices for ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies topics that we cover or have covered in third grade. I hope that you find it useful!
