November 5th, Ryan and his 3rd grade class performed the Wizard of Oz. It was based off of the original book, so the story line was a little bit different than the movie. Ryan didn't want to audition for a speaking part, so he was a crow and a flying monkey. The flying monkeys had a step routine and Ryan worked hard to be sure to have all the steps memorized. It was fun watching him practice (even Emma memorized some of the steps, we got a kick out of watching her mimick Ryan's moves). He makes a really cute flying monkey!!
