Talented {and Gifted} Technology

Mrs. Jezisek's 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students are always incorporating technology into their learning in the Talented and Gifted (TAG) classroom.  These 4th grade students completed an assignment on Literary Genres.  Each student was required to create a Power Point presentation, complete with graphics and slide animation, and present it to the class.  As you can see, classmates took notes as the students presented. 

3rd and 5th grade students recently completed an independent study project.  All students were required to create a commercial and a couple chose to do a video commercial.  The student wrote a script and selected pictures to insert into the commercial.  Mrs. Jezisek helped run the software program which runs the script on a teleprompter and records the student.  Below, you'll see Amy, a 5th grade TAG student, and Luke, a 3rd grade TAG student.
