Tq

One of the Ss project is to come out with your own Ss related topic and upon the teacher approval the kid can start working on it and do a write up.

an example of it is talking about obesity problem in Singapore as well as other countries..or any other topics tt affect the people locally as well as in other countries ...
I think they have to do 2 of such artifacts in the 1 semester and a group project which has to be submitted in July if I did not remember wrongly. But I do not know what is the topic of the group project about :scratchhead:

I remember my ds only use one biography book to do the assignment.
The other assignment is to write a biography of someone the kid knows. It can be his parent, grandparent and so forth ... This is something like the mystery story which they did in p5 whereby they have to submit a few drafts for the teacher to check and improve on before the final submittion.

sleepy wrote:We didn't send dd for gep training either. Tested her for IQ when younger. So I guess we just have to trust that IQ report.

However, I'm rather anxious whether she can cope with a heavier workload.

She's like a snake in hypernation, always in a daze and spacing out. And she moves in slow snail speed, takes forever to eat lunch, change, shower, before she can settle down to start her homework. As it is now, she's forever behind time in submitting her school homework, teachers called me to chase for homework.

The only saving grace is she's rather concerned whenever her results slipped. The only thing that can temporarily jolt her out of her daze mode. So hopefully the inceased competition will do her some good.

However, I don't really have high hopes she will pull her socks up even after she starts her gep. I think I'm the one who will be more stressed, have to keep nagging her. This is so frustrating!

Hello sleepy,blessmum4,dagong99 , can understand your anxiety and wondering whether your child can cope with the GEP prog. Just happen to read this from a article "How to Recognise a Gifted Child". It says that a gifted child is not a genius and does not have to know everything or do things out of the ordinary, such as play the piano at the age of two or speak several languages at the age of three.
There are 14 charatcteristics mentioned and I will like to highlight only two of them
(1) they persevere (they concentrate on a task and persist until they finish it. Imho, you will have to manage their expectation and sometime due to time constraint, they might feel frustrated when working on their hw/projects. So it will help if parents can assist/aware of this.
(2) they are vulnerable to the rejection of their classmates. Imho, this is important to take note as some of these kids would be starting in a new environment, friends, teachers, school system,... so encourage them to meke new friends and telling them it takes time too to make new friends. It will be good to take 'make/create' opportunity for friendship. I know one of my dd's classmates only manage to find friends that she can talk to only in term3.
