This was our first week without Mrs. Winn.  We wish her well, and look forward to meeting her new baby!!   Breaking news:  Declan Allen Winn was born this morning at 8:51 a.m. He weighed 8 lbs, 10oz. and was 19 inches long.  Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Winn on their new baby boy!    
    This week with Ms. Vogel was very busy.  We went to the computer lab twice for Type to Learn, and then we learned a fun rhythm in music class with Mrs. D.  In reading, we are continuing with Charlotte's Web and learning more about Wilbur, the pig.  In science, we observed our seed sprouters and recorded their growth.  We also soaked lima beans in water and measured how much they soaked up in two days.  Then we removed the seed coat and split open the lima bean to see the cotyledon and embryo.  It was so cool!   In math, we continued to practice rounding numbers to the nearest tens, hundreds, and thousands place!!  We had an assembly with the author, Judith Viorst, who told us about how she became a writer.  She wrote a very funny book based on her own son called Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.   We also heard speeches from over ten students who wanted to be our class Student Council Representatives. Congratulations to Arjun and Sarah, who will be our new Room 21 reps. April will be our alternate, in case someone is absent.
    Ms. Vogel would like to thank our parent volunteers who helped with the MESH folder, copying, creating new Writing Binders, and putting up a new bulletin board this week.
