Novel Time

RB and ML
We're reading a novel in class and we enjoy it so much! In The Tale of Despereaux a mouse meets a princess named Pricess Pea. They love each other. He's braver than all other mice. He has a needle and he pretends it's a sword. Other mice think that he is not a normal mouse and they send him to the dungeon.


Wow, our class is learning a lot about stars, planets, the Earth and its atmosphere. Today we were in the computer lab at Ten-Broeck Elementary getting ready to publish pictures and information on our class blog. I went into the Milky Way on Google and searched for an amazing picture. Did you know the Milky Way is the name of our galaxy? A galaxy is a group of billions of stars.
