Mrs. Brassfield is teaching her students coding in Computer Class at Catalayah. They are teaching their Elves to dance while learning to code!!! Coding is the a method of communicating with a computer. It is using a language that a computer understands to give a computer instructions in order to perform specific functions. Coding allows us to create things such as computer software, websites, apps and video games. Understanding computers and learning the basics of coding helps children to develop an appreciation of how things work. From problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and creativity, there are so many reasons to learn programming. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Karin Howell and Shauna Johnson at Claremont Elementary were awarded a 2021 Fall Grant for "Secret Stories"! "Secret Stories is a science of reading based program that aids in cracking the code to our language based on how the brain learns to read! The toolkit provided by this grant will eliminate the hassle of teachers creating their own researched based phonics instruction and hopefully reduce the amount of frustrated readers! Every child deserves the opportunity to learn to read. The earlier the intervention the better for our students. A big thank you to the CPSF!"-Karin Howell, Claremont 2nd Grade Teacher #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

1st grade at Roosa spent two weeks reading and comparing different gingerbread stories from the Gingerbread Cowboy to the Gingerbread Ninja. The week ended with a special treat of gingerbread man snacks. That afternoon the class discovered that their gingerbread man snacks had run away in the school! They read their final book Gingerbread Man Loose in the School by Laura Murray and when they went back to the classroom, their snacks were gone! The week ended with a special treat of gingerbread man snacks. Students passed out wanted posters and went on a scavenger hunt to recover the missing snacks. When the students went back to class, they found the gingerbread man snacks back in the classroom! They devoured them this time before they ran away again! Engaging students IN the story makes reading fun! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

During WIN time, some 5th graders learned the basics of digital video editing and broadcasting while giving our community an update on Santa and what is going on at the North Pole. Students practiced storytelling, writing, oral presentation skills and practiced using a teleprompter, videoing equipment, and editing. Check out their creativity, vocabulary, and public speaking skills. We see some future CHS ZTV students in the mix. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YF0RjBbDdM #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
