I am a teaching assistant and this is inspired by something that occurred during after school care.


“Let’s plan a funeral!” said the crew.

They placed the jump rope round her neck. They sang Amazing Grace and put grass in her hair.

Then a fourth grader said stop. A fifth grader got in their faces. The teacher called them all over, one by one; one story at a time.  Then it was the crew’s turn.

“Who had the grass?”

“I did”

“Who was singing?”

“We did.”

The crew left and the designated deceased came forward.

“Did you start this game?”


The hangman was called.

“Did you pull that rope?”


Five minutes later, they forgot everything.

The End
