Talking About First, Next, and Last

First, we came in and sat in the hallway and read at McKinley School. Next, we came into the classroom and read books with our friends. Then, we went to stations and met with the teacher. Today we went to the computer lab and then to lunch. Last, we went to the gym and played games. We went outside to play at recess. We read to someone after recess and it was fun! Soon we will pack up and go home.
