Looping's First Annual Worm Charming Competition - This Week!
 
Watch this video to get an idea of how it's done. 
 
 
 
We have written letters to Blackswton, England home of an annual worm charming competition in May. One of their cards incorrectly identified a year's passing as "rotation" of the Earth. Our 5th graders sent letters politely encouraging the company to correct the card, using "revolution of Earth around the Sun" instead. Our own worm charming competition will be THURSDAY at 8 am in front of Dodge. Mrs. Spring will be asking for parent volunteer help in judging (counting) worms.
