Here is Our Surreal Scroll

video
More than twenty surreal children turned up at the library yesterday to shuffle nouns and verbs and adjectives and elbow each other (ever so politely) for their bit of the scroll to embellish. It was SUCH FUN! Some of my favorite lines were:
The noisy trumpet laughs at fire
You gave an elegant ribbon
[to] A running confident monkey
The jumping round ear
is stealing a tiny moon
in embarrassing pointed waters.

Please excuse the bumpy video...

Is this something you put on with the children. I would like to do something like this with my students. What was the prompt, if you don't mind my asking? You know us teachers, always looking for clarification and stealing each others ideas.

PS I love your missed connections blog even though I am no longer in NY.
