Twitter Topic #elementaryschoolmemories: What Do You Remember About Elementary School?

By Sunny Chanel |

What Do You Remember Most?

What do you remember about Elementary School? I remember the smell of the copies from the mimeograph machine, the graham crackers and milk for snack, and having to put our heads down on the desk for a period of “rest.”  With my own child just beginning elementary school, memories of the start of my own scholastic career have come back to the forefront and I wonder, what will she remember? There will be good days and bad. Laughter and tears. Friendships forged and the forgotten. But it’s those little things, besides the all-important scholastics, that seem to stick.

A Twitter trending topic this week was #elementaryschoolmemories with users young and old (but 99% young) chiming in about what they remember most. Check out twenty of their most vivid memories. Do you share any of these and are these ones that our own children will have etched into their minds?
