The students have learned how to use a compass rose and how to locate important information on maps. They recently had the opportunity to visit the Stem Lab and use Ozobots to help them practice their directional and mapping skills.

Fifth graders at HES are having the opportunity to earn a "salary" by coming to school prepared to learn each day. They then earn extra "money" by exemplifying ROAR expectations (Responsible, Respectful, Safe) throughout the day. At the end of each week, students take their earnings and transfer them to their checking account register. Once every two weeks, students are able to shop in their classroom store by writing a check for their purchase. There, students can explore the different opporamity costs of their purchases and learn the value of savings. Students practice important decimal skills by adding and subtracting in their check registers. A special thank you goes out to Mr. Stuart Pippin of United Bank for providing students with an authentic checkbook register to track their savings and spendings.

They happen when something moves back and forth really, really fast. Sounds can travel through water, doors, and even wood! After learning all about sound, the first graders were able to work together to create their very own musical instruments! These instru- ments each make two or more unique sounds. These first graders think that Hubbard Elementary School and leaming about sound are awesome! (Courtesy of Ms. Boose's first grade class) Shapes are everywhere and our kindergarten students are having a blast learning all about their attributes. They've worked really hard to be able to identify two- dimensional shapes and many of them are able to describe objects in the environ- ment::because of what they have learned. They sorted pattern blocks by shapes. great to see our students using manipulatives, technology, real-life objects and music to explore the world of shapes.

Forsyth, GA 31029 7 t Fourth grade students at Hubbard Elementary are off to a wonder- ful start learning how to work as a team to complete a STEM Cup Challenge. Each team was given six cups, four strings, and a rubber band. The students had to work as a team to come up with strategies for lifting and stacking the cups. Each team had to decide what would be the right amount of force' to apply to the strings and rubber band in order to lift and stack the cups in a pyramid. They had a great time working in teams by communicat- ing with each other and building those collaborative skills. (Courtesy of Tang Smith) Mr. Baker from Hubbard Elemen- tary school is work- ing with three of his students in the STEM lab. William Jungberg, Dalton Powell and Kyleigh Garrison are par- ticipating in a team building challenge with cups, strings and rubber bands. The challenge is to build a tower WITHOUT touch- ing the cups with your hands. Patience and persistence paid off as they eventually accomplished their goal. Go Tigers!

Students spent a week on a unit focused on All About Me and students learned many things about themselves, including the parts that make up your body. Students began by tracing the outline of their classmates body on the con- crete. Then, students used their knowledge from class discus- sions and readings to name and label the parts that made up their traced bodies. (Courtesy of Lauren Hickman)
