Welcome to 4th and 5th grade Gifted and Scholastic Academy classes! My name is Mrs. Carol Babb and I have enjoyed teaching gifted and high achieving students since 1985. This year we will be having gifted enrichment classes that focus on higher order thinking skills. I have enrichment units planned that promote creative and critical thinking skills and problem solving skills. These units might include famous artists and genres of artistic expression, writing, toothpick bridges and egg drop competitions. We might focus on solar powered energy or write our own mysteries. What do you want to learn more about? Please let me know and we can make a plan! Below is a gallery of wonderful gifted and Scholastic Academy students from over the years I have taught at Cedarcrest - enjoy!
