In our part of the world, children are preparing to return to school today. Last week, I hazarded my way to Wal-Mart–a daunting experience under the best of circumstances–and the store was crawling with Moms and kids, gathering school supplies and clothes. I spoke to a few of them and they were all looking forward to starting a new school year.
I guess that, in southern hemispheres, the school year is preparing to wind down.
For today’s prompt, write a poem, essay, or short fiction about school. It may be an experience you have had, or preparing your own children or grandchildren. Perhaps you’ll choose to write a child’s poem or maybe you’ll tackle the three R’s–reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic. Do you want to describe an old school house or a chaotic classroom? If teaching is in your background, try writing from the point of view of a teacher.
Have fun with this. Now, go buy a package of nice sharp pencils. And please, Link up and share with one another.
