warriormom Posted June 8, 2012 Share Posted June 8, 2012 My son will be entering 1st grade next year. I would really like for him to be apart of Target (the gifted program) at our local public school. His kindergarten teacher ( at his classical Christian school) said she would suggest that he be part of any advanced programs in 1 st grade. He is smart but I really do not think he would be considered gifted. I am considering getting the Cogat bundle from Critical Thinking Co. to prepare him for the test in September. Here are the contents in the bundle: Mind BendersÂ® Book 2 Can You Find Me? K-1 Building Thinking SkillsÂ® Primary Mathematical Reasoning™ Level B Math Analogies Beginning Thinking Skills for Tests Workbook Thinking Skills for Tests Guide Any experience with these books? Are they worth the time? I figure it is worth a try. If he does not get accepted to Target, he will at least get some good practice with critical thinking. I know that moms have strong feeling about prep for tests like this....please don't throw any rocks. :leaving: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
