Hello PT,
I have second grade and I need to get some work samples for the portfolio to get a few kids tested for gifted. What is a good example of what I can have these kids do that I can use for this portfolio?

Thank you in advance.

I would talk to the GATE teacher at your school and get his/her perspective. In my state, we rely on standardized test scores for referrals, not a portfolio. But I would guess that you need evidence that these children have mastered skills and standards that are above second grade level, and that cover a variety of disciplines--writing samples, artwork, math work samples, evidence that they can read and comprehend complex text--both fiction and non-fiction, etc.

I always ask teachers to include anything that shows critical thinking, creativity, non-typical work. We don't use portfolios to qualify students; however, if a student doesn't qualify or comes close, the portfolio could be used as part of the appeal process to show what you are seeing that the test didn't identify. Standardized tests don't always show true giftedness... :-D
