Wednesday Writings

Yesterday was Wednesday and I spent it with a group of Deaf students (as usual). In their language unit, they were working on Acrostic poems. Sadly they did not "get" the fact that the sentences they wrote actually had to be related to the word the acrostic was based on. In frustration, the following made it up onto the board. It got translated into New Zealand Sign Language as well.

On Wednesday nights I have Israeli dance class. You need this bit of information to make sense of the poem below.

Wish it was over
Endless frustration
Dreaming students
Not paying attention
Enough already!
Should almost be time to
Dance the night
Away.
Yet another week half gone.

The above took less than three minutes to compose.
