"Education has always been a priority for the Cherokee people, and events like these allow us to expand the boundaries of the classroom," said Dr. Charles Gourd, executive director of the Cherokee Heritage Center. "It is vitally important that we support our educators and take an active role in teaching an authentic and accurate account of our history from our perspective." - Cherokee Nation Newsroom Westside Elementary welcomed guest speakers for Cherokee Heritage Day. Mrs. Stone trying the art of blow darts as her class cheers her on! Mrs. McGill's 5th-grade class is learning about the heritage at Cherokee Heritage Day. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Leave it to the staff to turn Halloween costumes into a lesson plan. This is how 4th and 5th grade teachers taught this nonessential standard (idioms). Students had to figure out what an idiom is, look at examples, then fill out their guess for each teacher. Once parties began, we drew from our boxes and the first kiddo we came to that had everything correct won the Halloween gift bucket! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Something CREEPY has been going on in the Catalayah library! 1st-grade students have been learning just how valuable the illustrator is in helping to "tell" the story. Last week they read Creepy Carrots, and this week Creepy Underwear. Both books are written by Aaron Reynolds, and illustrated by Peter Brown, a Caldecott Honor Award-winning illustrator. Mrs. Ward's class created some very creepy underwear today. Book review through eyes & ears of some of Mrs. Ward's 1st graders... “I thought it was funny when he tried to get rid of the underwear.” - Brooke “I liked it at the end of the book when he wore the creepy underwear.” -Stella “I liked THE CREEPY PAIR OF UNDERWEAR because it’s underwear.” -Haskel “I liked that the underwear glowed.” - Mason “I liked the alliteration ‘ghoulish, greenish glow.” - Jasmine #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

I got a lot of the greatest values in life from playing sports, from playing football - teamwork, sportsmanship, my work ethic, resiliency, dedication - I got it all by being on a team. Jon Gruden Last night the 3rd-grade CYFA football team and cheerleaders persevered through the rain and cold for their post-season tournament. They got the WIN and will play again, Saturday!

Mr. Cummings, CHS History Teacher, is currently planning an Educational Travel Experience to Boston and New York City for 2021. Memories of educational school trips are among the most prominent of the formative years, primarily because they are a welcome break in the routine for both students and teachers. While their purpose is mainly to educate, they can also be a fun bonding experience for everyone involved. The trip can reinforce what a teacher has been instructing in class about a subject and help students understand the topic better. These trips help students to become more engaged in the learning process. They also help students grow their socialization skills as they are taken into new environments giving them opportunities to be respectful of the locations and cultures they visit. Also, a student's curiosity is on high alert when they are in new places experiencing new things, which helps with the retention of the information for a more extended period. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

What's the most important thing about those everyday objects around you? Can it be different for different people? "The Important Book" asks children to think deeply about the importance of everyday objects, from apples to spoons. Catalayah teacher, Mrs. Ward, asks students to look deeper and see what is important about each other. A lesson in critical thinking, gratitude, appreciation, humanity, and observation. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

It's virtually impossible to avoid the excitement inspired by pumpkins. They have come to symbolize not only the vibrant color of the fall season but the spirit of the season as well. This is the best time of the year to utilize the endless possibilities of pumpkins in classroom activities. Pumpkin-related curriculum links math, science, language arts, social studies, cooking, and the arts. Mrs. Cole's Pre-K class explored all the characteristics of the pumpkin last week and followed it up with a field trip to the pumpkin patch this week. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
