Quiet hand. Put your hands down. If you think it’s sunny
only, no clouds, raise your hand. OK. If you think it’s sunny and cloudy, raise
your hand. OK. So we’re going to practice voting. Good
job, friends. What do you guys, Miss Janet, Miss [INAUDIBLE], Miss
Laurie– what do you think? I know there were clouds in the sky in the
morning. Maybe that’s what Hannah was thinking about when she– did
you go to another preschool or something in the morning, Hannah?
Uh huh. Jake, you have a quiet hand.
It’s cloudy. I think it’s sunny and cloudy because I can
see a lot of white clouds in the sky. It’s sunny.

forward to the side? There you go, Hannah. Great job. Keep them spread. So turn this
one this way. There you go.
Like me? Oh, turn your back foot this way. So they’re
going the same direction– perfect. And you say, I support myself.
