Could all 3 of my kids be gifted?

My oldest is 8 and identified highly gifted and is also musically gifted.



My dd who is in kindergarten is learning 2 languages and primarily taught in Spanish and is at 1 st grade reading and comprehension in both languages. She also is doing double digit addition.



My preschooler is taught primarily in Spanish and seems to be average in both languages for his age. However he knows double digit addition, subtraction and basic multiplication.



I'm going to be really surprised if my 2 youngest are gifted. My oldest was always advanced but my younger two were "behind" a lot in their skills up until preschool.



Anyways just a super proud mama of my kiddos :)

No we live in California. They are in a special dual immersion program. Our household speaks only English although my husband and I have picked up Spamish from the kids, lol!

I am trying to learn more Soanish in order to ensure they continue to do well in the program.

Congrats to you but I think most kids are gifted. It depends on what they are exposed too.

Soanish or Spamish? There's a huge difference.

I fixed it lol!

I meant Spanish. My 2 youngest are taught in 80 percent Spanish. It's a dual immersion program, we speak only English at home so it's huge they do so well.
