What They Were Up To

Class was over. It had been a weird day with the students mostly taking a standardized test on their laptops. Many finished early at which point it was free time. Now that the bell was about to ring, many of them were lined up at the door, something I don’t usually allow, but then today had been a weird day.

K stood at the far end of the whiteboard with a friend. Over the past weeks, they have been adding characters to a menagerie that I’ve left alone. There were 14 of them, and they were adding a 15th.

One glance, and I suspected what they were up to. They saw me watching them, and they giggled before returned to their task.

So what do you think they were up to?
