Full days.




Turned inside out.

There was a rainbow.



This was a poetry exercise I created for my class today-

The prompts by line were

I am…

I have…

3 -ing verbs

I feel…

I wish…


I got some really interesting pieces!  First we did this as a class activity, rolling the paper over and trading with someone new for each line.  Then we shared the results.  Finally, they created their own from stratch.

I ran into this video a few years ago, and every once in awhile I look it up again, just to see if it’s as absurd as I remember.  There’s something profoundly strange and disturbing about this, particularly since those back-up poodle exercisers look just like my OJ.
