Back to School Friday Five

My late mother-in-law thought of September as the “real” New Year because of the number of programs and classes starting. By Labor Day, school is back in session for most of us in the U.S., although there is great variation by region (my children don't return until Sept. 7th!). To mark this, we bring you the Back to School Friday Five.

1. What is your earliest memory of school?

2. Who was a favorite teacher in your early education?

3. What do you remember about school “back then” that is different from what you know about schools now?

4. Did you have to memorize in school? If so, share a poem or song you learned.

5. Did you ever get in trouble at school? Were there any embarrassing moments you can share?

Prizes for the Brilliantly British Friday Five will be announced late this evening. Thanks to Cathy for her suggestions on today’s topic. As always, let us know in the comments if you play, and link directly to your blog if possible. The code is:

Simply substitute <> for []

  6. Cheesehead, journalscape puts a slash at the end of its URLs, which blogger interprets as part of the HTML code. Remove the / and you're golden.

    It took me MONTHS to figure this out.

    At any rate, here are my answers.
