This flashback is for Frank Tassone’s Haikai challenge. He asked us to write a poem that included autumn/Labor Day/ School. This is a project I had my students do many years ago. They had to make a bird nest and put a real egg in it. Then they had to find a spot on the school ground where they thought it would be safe. At the end of the week we checked to see how many survived. Fun times before “teaching the test days!”

  2. First – Thanks for being a Teacher with a capital T!
    I did a short stint as a pre-school teacher in what seems like another life.
    You reminded me of a High School project that I read about where students were paired off with an egg
    and had to pretend it was a baby and give it 24 hour care for a week (between the two student parents.

    Manheim is a tad north. I don’t have FB but I just went looking… Yep, I think 283 in those parts really did get a bad go. Eek. We didn’t have any water in our home. And it didn’t come up the yard as much as the last storm. But I guess it was a might powerful, that overnight flooding.

  3. Cool project, Dwight!
    My husband retired from teaching high school math a couple of years ago (though he’s teaching as an adjunct at a community college), but our daughter is an eighth grade English teacher–school starts tomorrow!
