Birthday Cake is an Animated Step-by-Step Counting Poem. There are 10 children represented in this poem, ranging in age from 1 to 10 years old. Students are invited to help put the appropriate number of candles on their birthday cake. There are animations for lighting the candles, making a wish and blowing them out. As the candles vary in color, you can also work on color concepts. This poem can serve double duty to celebrate the birthday within the class. Visit the Animated Step-by-Steps™ blog for information on how to personalize ASbyS. http://bit.ly/1MvB0Md http://bit.ly/PhotoFaces
