Challenging the Gifted Mind Resources

100+ Resources for homeschooling the gifted mind of a child.

Resources for Homeschooling the Gifted Child
Homeschooling is daunting for anyone. Factor in the child who has an intense need for more mental challenge and any homeschool mom would find herself feeling overwhelmed. Because these children learn, understand and assimilate information at a faster rate, they become bored quicker and lose interest thinking they have mastered a given problem or puzzle.
As discussed on Tuesday, they have a constant need for more, more information, more challenges, more puzzles, and more knowledge. 
I’ve gathered for you resources where you can find materials, information, and challenges to meet the need of your child’s gifted. I’m sharing these resources using affiliate links below where you can purchase these materials at your discretion.
