Stealing the Show

There it dangles

As if floating in thin air
In the middle of the classroom
Causing a clamor amongst the students
It has now taken the spotlight
The students emerge from their chairs to observe the newly founded superstar.
                                              “Come here, little guy.”
                                                              “Ah, a spider!”
                                                                             “Don’t hurt it!”
Taking the spotlight
Causing a clamor
In the middle of the classroom
Floating in thin air
There it dangles

  1. And, I’m sure this all happened in the middle of a read aloud or during a lesson, right? The way you positioned the words on the page for this poem, Joy, made me smile. Now, what about those two long minutes from yesterday??

  2. Love the visual setup of this slice….almost like you were showcasing your students’ reactions! Gotta love when a spider takes over the lesson!
