GIFTED EDUCATION MONTH IN KENTUCKY
Join KAGE in celebrating February 2021 as Gifted Education Month in Kentucky. Activities may look different this time, but we are working on some ways you can celebrate gifted education in your schools and districts.
Click HERE for some suggested activities put together by KAGE board members for Gifted Education Month. Many of these could be done virtually or are activities that do not need face-to-face interaction. Please share with KAGE your ideas and activities taking place in your area – post to social media and tag @KAGEgifted.
Educating parents and district and community leaders on the importance of appropriate educational opportunities for gifted students is particularly critical. Invite parents and community and school leaders into (remotely!) a G/T classroom during this week. Ask them to participate in challenging activities along with gifted students. Possibilities for showcasing gifted students and gifted education are limitless.
Gifted Education Month in Kentucky is a good time to open positive dialogues with key decision makers, parents, local officials, and community members.
