Top Five Numbers!

Friday Top 5 numbers.

#5 Five is in fifth place because it’s last in line and is uneven. 

#4 one is in fourth place because if you pick number one then you not number one. 

#3 two is third because it’s even but small than five. 

#2 four is in second because it’s not first. 

#1 three is in first because it’s not even but it’s a good middle number.
