Animal Bands

This school supply works like a standard rubber band but instead of coming in a circle shape they start as either zoo animals or pets. They’ll even go back to their original animal shape after you use them! They are sold by Unica and come in a box of 24 for around $8.

    Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)

    Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

    Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D

    There is a slight issue with that. I am rarely comfortable talking with children my own age.
