Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 673 (Tuffy The Turkey)

Tuffy the turkey went to school-

To learn the golden rule.

.

She strutted her feathers all day long-

She corrected her math when it was wrong.

.

She learned and took a hint-

At how to do the proper science experiment.

.

Tuffy wrote the best story ever-

In the midst of her English class endeavor.

.

And, when lunchtime came around-

Tuffy kept her feet firmly on the ground.

.

The corn tasted so good-

A second helping, yes, she would.

.

Back to class, Tuffy learned some more-

About the country’s history, Tuffy was

never in bore.

.

But, alas the school day did have to end-

Tuffy, went back home, that was up and

over the bend.

.

With thoughts to come back the next day-

Tuffy’s education was much underway.

.

Tuffy the turkey went to school-

To learn the golden rule.

To Change The Words To Clear-That Much Nagging Fear # 39

It’s Monday, and I’ve got to
get up for school.

I almost forgot that school
was out for the summer,
and for a bit I am free of
that golden rule.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 630 (Back To School)

Little Man watched out the window-
He saw his playmate, on the school bus,
ride away slow.
.
It had been different the whole summer long-
With no schedule, to worry about, the playtime
was strong.
.
Little Man would run and catch the ball-
He’d slide all the way down the hall.
.
Little Man would sleep in late-
Knowing that when he awoke, all
day long, he’d have his playmate.
.
But, suddenly things began to change-
Little Man’s life was in full re-arrange.
.
His playmate was no longer there during
the day-
For quite a while, the playmate would be
away.
.
School had begun, and for Little Man, he
had to adjust-
To wait for his playmate to come home,
patience was a must.
.
So he chewed on his bone, and hung
around until that yellow school bus
came back-
And, then life for Little Man, would get
back on track.
.
Little Man watched out the window-
He saw his playmate, on the school bus,
ride away slow.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 557 (Prep For School)

We got up early, to go to school-
We were great students, who always
followed the golden rule.
.
We heard the alarm clock, and off
we were-
To eat our breakfast, to do the oatmeal
stir.
.
And afterwards, brushing our teeth, and
our hair-
Already dressed, and doing a quick mirror
stare.
.
Didn’t want to miss the bus, for that was
not good-
Off to the bus stop, as we should.
.
And, to our surprise, we had forgotten
that school was out-
Habits persist, as we performed, a sudden
backward route.
.
We got up early, to go to school-
We were great students, who always
followed the golden rule.

Chalkboard And Erasers (2002)

I can remember back in the old school days when the kids in the classroom would quickly raise their hands to do two functions in class. One was to erase the chalkboard, and the other was to get the opportunity to take the erasers outside and clap them together.

Those old fashioned chalkboards that are still in use today, May one day disappear just like the outside clothes line. the clothes line was something that was used it seemed like forever and then it came to a time when my children thought that the two posts in someone else’s backyard was an old game. Perhaps the two posts were used as goals for some type of sports. Little did they remember the need for the poles in order to get the laundry done back in the old days.

It is said that the school designers of today are eliminating the chalkboards in the new schools that are being built. instead we are seeing white shiny boards or in many cases high tech devices that turn the boards into computers. I’d have to say that we have come come a long way from the days of Little House on the Prairie when they used slates in order to practice the Abc’s.

A friend of mine said that one of her favorite things at school was to watch her teacher write with her personal piece of chalk. You know how a lot of the teachers had the little silver holders. Anyway her teacher would write so neatly with the chalk in the holder, and she always pictured herself writing with it.

One thing that will not be missed is having to physically write a particular punishment on the board so many times. I can remember seeing a few kids having to write I will not …….! By the time they
finished writing their punishment excercises their hands would be sore. I guess that on the computer boards of the future a typing punishment would be less excruciating. I know that I can type a lot faster than I can write, and then it is not quite as tiring.

Back in the old days every once in a while when we’d get a chance we’d scribble something on the board to shock the teacher. Not anyting too explicit, just something enough to let her know we’d messed with her board. Modern times will make that also much easier. a press of a keyboard and the deed will be done, and instead of her having to erase it all she’ll have to do is press the delete button. I’m sure that the look on her face will remain the same though. Modern technology cannot alter that reaction!

“One day memories will stir-
Regarding the subject of the chalkboard and eraser!”
