    Provide a large array of learning tools, environments, and learning opportunities. Exposure to this lets children start developing their likes and interests. My daughter has a very gifted son. He has been exposed too weekly trips to zoos, science centers, museums. At 3.5 he is talking about his future. He has great interest in helping animals. He knows a very large amount of the human organs, and bones be their scientific names. He begs for an x-ray  machine to see the bones! His Mom and Dad bought him an x-ray viewer that lights up and then bought him real x-rays for him to study. He reads and draw quite well. They spend lots of time with him and expose him to lots of wonderful experiences in the Chicago area. As for the schools, individualized learning would be wonderful, but in public schools this will not happen. They are looking into this type of schooling for him as the public schools will not be able provide the advanced learning environment he will be ready for.

      Parents are the child's first teachers.It'sTHEY who motivate/teach the child.It's so important that parents discover their children's gifts VERY EARLY ON. Parents can INSPIRE or DESTROY a child.

    Tell children the secret of learning is repetition, repetition, repetition. The teachers rarely say that's the key. Only my Spanish teacher did. And it worked. The higher the repetitions, the easier it is to remember the material automatically. If the teacher says or shows how to do something only once, the bright kids may pick it up, but the kid who was daydreaming will not. Then they quickly say the people who don't remember are dumb. No. It was not repeated enough. It must be repeated until it becomes automatic. It may take 50 to 100 repetitions. Whatever it takes. If a child can remember what was said, they will have good grades. If they can't remember, they will have poor grades.

      The child with a 140 IQ and above does not need repetition, that is more for the child with the bordeline IQ.  Children with IQs of 140 and more need intellectual stimulation which is missing in the average school unless there are specified classes.

      It still requires a memory system. No kid comes to school already knowing the information without being taught by somebody. Unless they're a trance channel.  lol
