Hot in the City: Carnival!

I don't know where you are, but where I am it's hot. Hot in the Carnival, uh, today. Yeah. Anyhow, welcome to the newest installment of the Carnival of Education. Summertime is all about the one-liners, and so are my versions of the Carnival. Enjoy!

Thanks for the mention.

No, my students don't say "Guv'nah" at the end of their invective. In fact I've never heard of the word "Guv'nah". Is it Spanish?

Darren said...

Muy bueno!

Jose said...

Hey what's up? Yeah, that was me who wrote the poem. I just shared something I wrote that was inspired by what was in the book. Thanks for including me. Peace ...
