Hamilton MindPlus students were asked to express, in very few words, what gifted children want from teachers, and what they value as learners. What they wrote was the high point of my day, and I hope you’ll love it just as much.
You’ve come to the right place to find chantable slogans for Gifted Awareness Week:
Top teacher time makes tons of fun. Hamish.
Gifted kids want to learn, learn, learn. Niamh.
Gifted kids, gifted kids, need fun teachers. Conor.
Gifted kids like to learn, explore, do. Hamish.
Learners want fun school, please, please, please! Jackson.
