Gifted missing peaces

Today in gifted we made are own versions of stories with holes and we called them missing peaces. It would be a story missing some information to the story and you have to figure out what happened.Here is an example by Carli and Brook: A bird sings every morning and was bothering Paul, his owner.Paul then decided to get rid of the bird and crushed it with a hammer.There was no blood and the bird was not harmed but it never sang again.The answer is that the bird is a cuckoo clock.
We also sent thank you cards to soldiers over seas by Internet and by mail where we got to customize them both ways.It was so fun!

Greek Goldberg

Today we learned about Greek mythology and even made our own versions of greek myths.We got to make paintings inspired by Georgia O'Keefe's artwork.We learned more about Rube Goldberg and how he loved to make comics that show how Americans make things more challenging than they need to be.

The myths we learned were the ones of Pandora's Box, Arachne and Athena. We also learned of the history of greek mythology and different cultures.Many myths date back to 40,000 bc and are still around today.

Rube Golberg was well know for his comics and "inventions". He would show how to be sure you remember to mail your wife's letter (shown above) and many , many more.
We learned these things from

Jack and Carli

Gifted Goldberg

Today we learned about Rube Goldberg, the cartoonist, and his inventions(cartoons). We also made our own Rube Goldberg inventions and figured out how to make a"Better mouse trap." He makes simple things become so complicated.He made a character called Professor Butts.For example, he needs to do a simple task to remember to mail a letter. But he makes it complicated and makes a whatcha-ma-callit that reminds him to mail the letter.
