The Next Page Entry 57: A matter of time…

Saw a cartoon in the paper recently with the caption, ‘Alarm clocks…because every morning should begin with a heart attack.’

My version: “School bells…because every day should end with a heart attack.”

I swear they [whoever ‘they’ is…but I have a pretty good idea.] crank up the volume to 11 [aka’ Led Zeppelin-KISS-AC/DC’] at 3:00.

And is it just for Room 36?

Or am I being paranoid?

Or, should I say, more paranoid than before?

And since it’s a PNG, you can easily edit it here.

Drop by the Expo for a tour of the preview items.

** Here is a short tour of the Expo and its current collection of resources. [More are being added every week.]

Suggestions:

— Project it to the whiteboard and have the students provide their own captions.

— Save/download the image above and send it to a teaching colleague.

— Better yet…

  1. Open it in an image editing program [even a presentation program like PowerPoint will work]

  2. Slap an even better caption on top of mine or add a personal comment.

  3. Export it as a JPG or PNG, and email/text message it to that friend.
