They're working on reconstructing a real habitat after several ex- perimental designs were tried. They are excited to watch their tadpoles grow into frogs over the next several weeks. (Courtesy of Betsy Ford) and HES teachers make learning fun My name is Morgan Long. I teach Pre-K at Hubbard Elementary and enjoy every minute. Finishing up the week of Dr. Seuss reminds me of how much I enjoy reading, being silly, and having fun while learning! In our classroom, we love to learn, we are kind, and we have a great time while doing it! Fifth graders shined at the Hubbard Elementary School's STEM night. Students ex- plained to parents, students, and community partners about their Earth Science STEM projects. The pro)ects included creat- ing an earthquake proof tower, building a seisrhograph, and building a dam. These students. did an excellent job repre- senting fi.fth graders at HES. Pictured are Rory Fowlsand Jesse White. Students in Mrs. Cawthon's kindergarten class have been excited about learning how to program Ozobots. The students had to leam the ozobot's language which consists of different pattems of colors. Each pattem tells the ozobot a different motion: fast, slow, tum around, go left, go right, u-tum and, our favorite, "tomadd'. Before students could program the ozobots, we had to %e" an ozobot and read, then follow the directions in the pat- terns laid out on the floor. To review and practice motion, students had to give each other directions as they would an ozob6t. On our third day of ozobot tmining the students were excited to use what they leamed about ozobot language to actually color codes for the ozobot to read. Students discovered that they had to color the pattern carefully or the ozobot wouldn't move. During our next visit to the STEM lab, the students are going to draw codes to tell the robots to follow the map and "pick up" the living things. We have been learn- " ing the difference between living and non living. We are very thankful for Mrs. Parham, who has made the ozobots a fun and engaging coding experience for us!

Students worked with partners, in small groups, or individually to create a musical instrument that would produce at 16ast three different pitches. These students really rose to the challenge, making guitars drums, shakers, and some unique, one-of-a-kind instruments. Way to Rock It Out, 4th graders! (Courtesy of Dr. Donna Ayers ) I , 1 ,
