Helping students understand how academics is essential in their everyday lives; teachers build the fundamentals into their everyday routine. Here, Pre-K students add their names to the "present" column then count together the number of absent students and the number of present students. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

For 3rd graders, "the cold never bothered them anyway!" Students are still enjoying outdoor recess - and will continue to do so until the weather no longer permits. Please remember to send your child to school in weather appropriate clothing, including a coat and gloves. If your child does not have a coat, please let the teacher or counselor know. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Do you remember writing your first paper? What was it about? Steph Curry, Hurricane Katrina, The US Flag...are a few of the topics 5th grade students at Claremont are finishing up. It has been quite the journey for 5th grade...choosing a topic, learning about the research process, and summarizing it into their own words for their paper, but they've done it and laid the foundation for their future education. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Mrs. Devers’ 2nd grade class completed a how-to writing unit about hot chocolate! It included graphing and writing about their favorite way to drink hot chocolate. They used adjectives to describe hot chocolate and wrote how to make the perfect cup of hot chocolate. They ended the unit with an exploding hot chocolate science experiment to review the states of matter and chemical reactions, hot chocolate, and buddy reading outside on a beautiful day. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

How early can you begin teaching students about STEM? At CPS we start as early as Pre-K in our STEM labs. Our STEM Lab Facilitators use Sphero robots to introduce students to coding systematically. Here Pre-k students start to use the Sphero tilt option. Students are assigned an individual Sphero that they program/control with a tilt, touch, or swing of their tablet. Each group used their tablet to control their robots and spread the paint to create a painting. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Two essential questions CPS teachers ask during and after each lesson. 🏫 What will we do when a student does not learn the material? 🏫 What will we do when a student does learn the material? WIN time is an opportunity for teachers to respond to intervention based on a student's individual needs. In addition to face-to-face time with students, technology is a great way to individualize instruction during WIN time to make sure all students achieve at a high level and are given various ways to show their knowledge. Pre-K - 8th graders participate in structured WIN time every day. CHS students, 9th-12th, have Encore built into their daily schedule to address these questions and an assigned academic advisor to walk them through their high school experience. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Building a community takes time to get to know each other. CPS understands the importance of creating that sense of community. On the first day back to school, Mrs. Newman's class shared one thing they received for Christmas. They passed the yarn between them to make sure everyone had a chance to talk and show how they were all connected. When everyone had taken a turn not only had they shared but the also realized they built a giant spiderweb!! Next up, celebrate the New Year with a countdown and party horns at "midnight." #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Taylor Hoffer at Claremore High School was awarded a 2021 Fall Grant for "Picasso Needs a Table (Phase 2)"! "This fall CPSF completed a grant started in the spring of 2021 to replace the 30+ year old desks in classroom 210. Our art students now have access to state-of-the-art drafting tables. Art students spend 80% of the semester drawing or painting; these new smooth surfaces lift to alleviate neck and back strain as students work on their art for 70 minutes at a time. They will use these tables to create highly competitive artwork that will be submitted to the Philbrook Museum, the Scholastic art and writing competition, Young Talent, the Oklahoma state fair and more!

Sometimes a game is just a game, and other times it is a tool to help students learn or reinforce an educational competency. Here, a teacher uses Boggle to find as many words as possible in a jumbled grid of 16 letters. This activity is a fun way to help students improve their vocabulary and awareness of word spelling. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Students are learning to use technology to make someone's life a little brighter. "Hey guys, let's make a birthday video for my mom! I'll record you singing on my iPad!." - Asher The kids in his class naturally and enthusiastically went along with it! 😂 If you were this child's parent, we bet your heart was a little softer, your smile a little brighter, and your birthday filled with a great memory. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Happy New Year from Claremore Public Schools. As we enter into a new year, we all seem to take time to reflect on our lives, habits, choices from the past and contemplate how they impact our future. This reflection can lead to new inspiration, goals, resolutions, or a new focus. Instead of adding to it, some consideration may lead to removing obstacles or habits from our lives. Either way, we are all looking for a positive change. Whether you choose a resolution, a goal, a word - we'd love for you to share it with us on our FB page and maybe inspire others. Remember: Our students return on Tuesday, January 4th. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
