Whiz Kids Club
"Whiz Kids" is a club for students who are interested in achieving "above and beyond" the normal classroom expectations. To become a "Whiz Kid" all you have to do is choose a challenge from the list below and learn all about the topic that you can. Once you feel you have mastered the content you will schedule an appointment to report the answers to Ms. O'Brien. You will earn a star for each challenge you correctly complete. You can one 1 star, all the way up to 84 stars!
Once you have earned 16 stars, you will have earned a place in the "Whiz Kids Hall of Fame." The "Whiz Kids Hall of Fame" will be posted on this website. At the end of the school year certificates will be given to all who participated in the club. Good luck and have fun!
A big thanks to fourth grade teacher Mrs. Dunn from Cabot, Arkansas. It was on her website that I first saw this type of challenge program being used. I also want to give credit to Mrs. Renz a fourth grade teacher in Redmond, Oregon. It was Mrs. Renz who first created this challenge program and has so generously allowed other teachers world-wide to benefit from her hard work. Thank you Mrs. Renz!
