This book is great! Every elementary teacher should be required to read this. This book helps teachers to identify and help their gifted students in a regular classroom. This helps to break some of the myths about giftedness as well as providing useful material teachers can apply without additional budget. Please value this advice because the lack of gifted programming in our schools is leading to unusually high numbers of unmotivated, underachieving, depressed, and work inhibited gifted students. The schools dropped the programs due to lack of budget. The new teachers are untrained in identifying and helping the gifted so they blame the families. The parents and students are begging and pleading for the schools to add appropriate challenges so the gifted students might value their education.

Gifted children are exceptional in many ways, but teaching them in the classroom is very challenging. They learn so fast that they become class clowns, disrupters, bored with the slower pace teachers use to teach in a classroom. Teachers rarely appreciate the efforts required to address gifted students needs. They are unlike bright students and this book has a chart explaining the differences.

This book inspires teachers to keep a sharp lookout for bright young students--including those who may not appear "high-ability" at first glance! Students will be happier and more productive both at school and at home if teachers and parents used approaches to learning described in this book. I think it would make a wonderful gift from parents to a teacher at a parent-teacher conference!

Too many teachers enter the field without any real experience teaching the young gifted child. This book provides practical and effective ways to meet our young gifted children's needs. I believe every principal would be wise to make this book available to every teacher at their school. Look for the "sister" book to this for the upper primary grades. Highly recommended!
