How do you say "let's take turns!" in Hmong?

About once a week I go "teach" at a preschool for Vietnamese refugee kids. They are all here with their families, waiting to be processed through the UN refugee program. Because they're here illegally, they aren't allowed to go to school for the 4-5 years that it takes to get assigned to a new country. I'm not actually sure how much they're learning, but they sure are cute. I thought I'd give you guys a visual.

Christmas party last week.

They're very bright kids.

This week we had 45 kids in this room.

Snack time.
