Do you have a student who taught herself to read, or have a student who can recite the size and eating behaviors of every single dinosaur species? Is your child playing Risk and Settlers of Catan with older kids, but can't ever find his shoes? Is your student struggling to make friends at the park? Is it feeling impossible to get your student a class or a textbook your child doesn't race through? Are you exhausted from trying to teach? Is your child's boredom causing strife? All of these behaviors are indications of giftedness, and homeschooling your gifted child can be daunting. We are here to help!
This talk is for anyone currently homeschooling or considering homeschooling who is feeling overwhelmed at teaching a gifted student in grades K-5. We will discuss what it means to be gifted, how to recognize it in your children (and yourself), the "downsides" of giftedness such as anxiety, perfectionism, and procrastination, how to combat boredom and underachievement, and offer a variety of strategies and curricula for teaching young students so they, and you, can grow through homeschooling.
Free, but registration required. Limited to 20 participants.
Seminar is held live at the store.
