Learning to create/sketch the upcoming week's metaphors during my last class on Fridays AND learning to remember my digital camera so I can post it to my blog (and to my Edmodo site).

This upcoming week we will have "Life is a Road and you are a Traveler" as our metaphor...

We'll, of course, discuss Frost's "The Road Not Taken," and Jim Croce's song, "I Gotta Name."  Both fit the metaphor nicely.  I'm looking for a short piece of prose (could even be an excerpt) that fits the theme too.  Anyone got an idea for me? 

My kids are so into Mr. Stick now--even in their History, Science, and Math Classes!

Hope this inspires you!


  1. There's Steppenwolf's "Born to be Wild", too.

  1. I've been using Mr. Stick metaphors this year after seeing your great idea.

    What I've used so far:
    Each day is a blank sheet of paper.
    This course is a marathon, not a sprint.
    Our class is a jigsaw puzzle.
    I love your ideas, and so do my students.
