At CPS WIN Time, which stands for "What I Need," is a designated time of day for students to receive targeted instruction for their greatest needs. It is a building-wide fluid system of student intervention. Once students become proficient in their area of difficulty or enrichment, they transition to their next priority area. At Claremont Elementary School, Mrs. @Vona Cardwell's WIN group, for the upper grades, focuses on "enrichment" where the CSN network was launched. The idea was developed to motivate students and nurture a sense of pride in their school; it creatively brings the building together during a time of necessary separation amongst grade-level cohorts. Students love the opportunity to be a part of the CSN broadcast. "Mrs. Cardwell brought the idea to life, exceeding my expectations," exclaimed Mrs. Randa Reavis Fay, Principal. Students are learning about public speaking, improving vocabulary, video technology and more. The broadcast will be available monthly.

More of 4th grade performing "surgery" for their text feature workbooks. Text features are things like the title, index, glossary, illustrations, captions, labels and many more. Students identified these using magazines and cut/pasted them into their workbooks.
4th Graders participated in "Text Feature Surgery" where they were tasked to find text features in magazines to put in their text feature workbook. Armed with only scissors and glue, these surgeons operated quickly and effectively to identify those text features.
4th Grade students took the Dr.'s oath before beginning on their text features project. For this project, students completed "surgery" on magazines to pull out elements that were examples of text features.
Next up is our wonderful Registrar, Mrs. Goodwin. Mrs. Goodwin says that the thing she loves most about CPS is the people. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
We have a parade of our own to showcase today! 2nd Grade students read Balloons Over Broadway, a book about how the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade began and then got to create their own parade balloons and participate in a parade of their own around the school.
This year has been filled with chatter of how hard 2020 has been. And, that is undoubtedly true. But, as we observe Thanksgiving today, let's remember there have been moments of wonder, beauty, and celebration in 2020 as well. We have met new people and learned new skills. We experienced new ways of seeing the world, impacting lives, and helping others. Let's not forget the cherished time spent with family. And, maybe, just maybe, these tough times have allowed us the sacred opportunity of growing. One of the most beautiful things is how people have come together to support each other. Drive-by birthday parties, companies sharing resources for free or at discounts to help educators do great work even though they were facing the unknown. Parents sending extra hand sanitizer, tissues, and gift cards to show their support and love for teachers. Restaurants feeding first responders and healthcare workers. These moments have been inspiring. Yes, there have been some gruesome moments in our world this year, but there are moments that are worth holding onto with a very tight grip. Let's be great curators of the moments deserving our attention. We may not be sitting around the table together, but we do hold each other in our hearts and consider each of you a blessing in our lives. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
