Students across the district were eager to return to the library this week to exchange their books. Did you know, reading not only widens a child's vocabulary, but through reading, children develop empathy, build confidence, and expand their imagination. Reading impacts many facets of a child's development! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Ever asked questions, and all you hear is the crickets? Mrs. Blankenship's class was full of crickets when she introduced the argumentative writing unit using a game of speed debating. Students had thirty seconds to argue their side of an issue. Let's say these crickets were chirping all hour. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Mrs. Monnot from the City of Claremore, Storm Water Department, came to Catalayah to show our 5th graders about water quality, recycling, and how recycling will help keep the world clean. Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. Recycling can benefit your community and the environment. Fifth graders have the opportunity to participate in an art contest. The winner gets to have their art displayed on a trash truck for the next few years as a prize. Information for the poster submission is attached. We would like to have all posters turned in by March 2nd. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

If we ever get a snow day, these students will be ready! Mrs. Wallis' 2nd-grade is reading a book about Balto and his trip to save the town of Nome, Alaska, in 1925. The student completed a STEM project constructing sleds as an enrichment activity. The next time they get on a sled, we bet they will think about this activity and maybe ask some questions about how their sled was made. We love to see all their creativity! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

🎤 Who is afraid to speak in public? Ms. Palmer’s 4th Grade English Language Arts teacher makes this new experience a little easier. After working through the writing process, students read their reports to their class. Many students lack experience with public speaking, so Ms. Palmer gives them some options to make them feel comfortable. They could sit or stand at the front of the room. They could also choose to be on “The Voice,” which means that everyone faces away from the speaker, or choose “American Idol,” where everyone faces the speaker. These strategies help students focus on being clear and concise instead of worrying about being in front of the class. These minor adjustments will help them build the confidence they need for future public speaking opportunities throughout their lives. We love watching your confidence grow! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Pre-K spent some time trying out different ways to paint! If we were judging those facial expressions, we would infer they had a blast! ❤ BENEFITS OF PAINTING: 🎨It is an excellent tactile experience. 🎨It stimulates your child’s senses. (Touch/feel, sight, smell, edible finger paint= taste) 🎨It helps a child’s intellectual development. The mixing of colors teaches your child about their colors and how to create new colors 🎨It allows them to use their imagination and create 🎨It is emotionally soothing (in most cases). 🎨It encourages cognitive development. 🎨It strengthens the hand and fingers which helps with fine motor skills. 🎨Most importantly, it is FUN! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Mrs. Brasher’s 3rd-grade class read Mercedes and the Chocolate Pilot Candy by Margot Raven. A true story of the Berlin airlift and the candy dropped from the sky in West Berlin, Germany, in 1948. Mrs. Brasher made the story come alive as the class made their own parachutes and dropped them from the playground equipment. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Do you remember having a journal as a student? 5th grade students at Claremont take time to write in their journals every day - sometimes with a prompt and sometimes free writing, getting to put to paper whatever is on their mind. Writing is such an important, foundational skill for all students; it becomes more complex and inherent in schooling as students grow and mature. In addition writing is also good for social and emotional wellbeing. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Did anyone have a lightboard growing up? CPS is thankful to have lightboxes in our art programs. This one was donated by Mrs. Coffey's friend, an architect upgrading their tools. We are grateful for the community that sees the benefit of investing in our students. As you can see, these artists enjoy a chance to practice their skills. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
