1st year teacher in general ed. classroom

Hi, I'm a first year 5th grade teacher in a general ed. classroom; I have 4 students identified as G/T. One of my students in particular needs to be challenged, so I'm looking for some ideas of how I might do that. Should I have her and the other G/T kids always take a pre-test before we cover a unit in class and then give them modified activities? I've been looking on the G/T board and found good advice, but it would be helpful if I could get some specific activities (especially since I'm a new teacher!). Thanks.

... in the Regular Classroom by Susan Winebrenner. If you can get a copy now and read it over the break. It's the best book for what you are looking for! Good luck!

In my first year, I had 7 very intelligent G/T kiddos. I always had soduku for them to work on, and they worked through the math book at their own pace, pretty much teaching themselves. I would conference with them a couple times a week. They worked a lot together, would do online projects. The soduku was great though, especially when they were doing what the class was doing and they were done early.
