We got to touch that leg bone on the way out the door!
How cool was that?

And our new skill, SEQUENCING!

It was Ms. Hillary's last day with us.
Ms. Shelby will be with us one more day in December.

This BEAUTIFUL corn was what 
the class chose to make for winning the ABC Game!
Yep, they've won 3 times now!
Just a reminder, we review 25 of the 26 letters daily,
leaving 1 card out.  
They kids have to pay attention to which one it is.  
We race to a certain number..10 for the first time, then 15, now 20!
And they DID it!
The kids voted for a messy art project!
And this one was SUPER gluey!

 WOW!  I love love love these!
