April Blog Hop


Ironically I did not have time to write a post for the Gifted Homeschoolers Forum April blog hop ‘Promoting health and wellness in the gifted/2E child’ because I was busy taking Sprite to appointments with psychologists, education consultants, paediatricians, specialists and to shoe shopping expeditions. Blog posts about these will be written soon, I hope.

But, of course, Retweet wants us to go on the Hop and take her along with us!
Retweet is hoping that someone will be giving advice about nutrition as she is trying to meet a variety of challenges when feeding her tweetlets.
Whatever she does; Great Aunt Hashtag is bound to disapprove.

The main challenge with feeding Tweetil is providing enough to satisfy his huge appetite without him becoming obese. He is a true Twitter bird omnivore and his favourite food is wormecelli which is quite fattening.
Feeding Tweetelle is more difficult. She has always been a picky eater. Some days she would only eat food of one colour.
Then after Tweetelle found out where her food came from she resolved to keep the caterpillar as a pet and become a seeditarian. https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2012/05/02/tweetelle-becomes-a-seedetarian/

The overexcitable Dabrowski Dogs also want to go on the Hop as they feel sure that Dabrowski’s overexcitabilities will be mentioned in some of the posts!

So we will be going on the Hop and leaving comments and would like to encourage all our readers to come along with us by following the links to all the posts at http://giftedhomeschoolers.org/blog-hops/promoting-health-wellness-gifted-2e-child/

  1. That was a very nice reading session. I enjoyed (and smiled) at the daily life of the Retweet household. Then the links through the blog hop were fascinating and I hope the messages will help me to be a better educator for my in-school class of 5 and 6 year olds. We are a complicated group and none of the children has been labeled in any real way yet, just lots of talk and note taking. I wish I could come up with a metaphor for us and the various activity levels, sensitivities, and learning styles/strengths. Overall, we are an active and curious bunch of 18 kids and 2 adults.

    • Thank you, Gail! Your students are so fortunate to have you as their teacher! You are always finding ways to understand their needs and enrich their learning experiences.
      Gifted Homeschoolers Forum is a great source of information, encouragement and support.

  2. I intend to write a series of posts about testing retesting diagnosing assessing and then finding suitable education provisions for Sprite shortly – I just keep on getting involved in doing other things!
    Yep picky eaters are a real challenge!
