I am excited to tell you that our class of Needham third grade High Ability Language Arts students have been selected to participate in a research study through the University of Virginia!  We have the opportunity to use outstanding curriculum for a Gifted and Talented focused Poetry Unit that will begin on Tuesday.  In preparation of this Unit we will take a 30 minute portion of the Iowa Basic Skills test at 8:00 AM on Monday.  Students will create their own Poetry Anthology, and we will have a Poetry Reading Night to be announced at a later date. I will update you at least once a week concerning this Unit.  We will soar to new heights of learning in Language Arts!!
As always, do not hesitate to call or email with any questions or concerns you may have concerning your child.
