Linking today to Sunday Whirl Wordle #113

CHALK AND DUSTER

in the wake of chalk and duster
knowledge confounded

a cave cut
in the hillside of mischief
a load of dynamite

shatters the status
of anything
that makes sense

the chattering
at recess pours in
after the bell

they giggle
whispering the scoop
from cupped hands

trying to drive
the teachers crazy
their splits

moonshine
island children sanction
anancy tales

Children soon learn if they can get the upper hand with teachers especially with a little anancy spider their running mate.

Love it! And love how we all take different slants from the same handful of words.

I love the anancy reference. We've done some reading of "anansi" stories in my classroom. This was a fun read. Students are the same world wide, eh? Nice write!
