Top 10 Memories from Elementary School

The Top Ten
1 Recess

I miss this. It would be nice to get outside during the school day

Ah yes I miss recess.

2 Everyone Was Friends with Each Other

Every kid was nice at that age. Things like brainwashing and having a unilateral opinion wasn't heard of.

Maybe not everyone, but definitely people were a lot more friendly.

3 Field Day

This was always the best. I remember how awesome it was to go outside and enjoy some dessert (like a popsicle) before the final bell to go home rang.

I’m in middle school basically just graduated from 5th grade and since that Elmo incident in first grade, no one passing me the ball in 2nd grade, and falling of my Hippity Hop in 3rd grade, I try and fake sick for every field day.

4 Valentine’s Day Candy
5 Class Parties

I remember these. They were the best.

Yeah these were also fun.

6 Arts and Crafts
7 Field Trips

I'm in high school and we go on field trips bit most of them are boring

I liked these so much.

8 Book Fairs

Who doesn't remember the Scholastic book fairs they had in the elementary school library every few months?

9 Musical Chairs
10 Red, Yellow, and Green Cards

My 3rd grade classroom had something similar, but with yellow stars on a whiteboard. W meant warning, and there were checks from 1 -3 (3 was a phone call home to your parents). If you didn't misbehave that day, you'd get a raffle ticket and could sometimes use them to buy things on Fridays.

Then, in 5th grade, my class colored paper plates with blue being the best, and red being the worst, with orange, yellow, and green being in between the red and blue paper plates.

The Contenders
11 Christmas Concerts

Including my school got a dance.

12 Easier Work

Elementary school: Up to 20 minutes of homework
Middle school: Up to 3 hours of homework

I didn't have to pay attention until I took algebra in 7th grade

13 Tag

We would have these massive games that pretty much most of the year level would participate in.

14 Lock Down Drills

Now we just have real one and bomb/gun threats. How times have changed.

15 Movies
16 Square Pizza
17 Toys in Class
18 Skipping Ropes

Oh we didn’t just skip with them.


We used to whip and try and hurt each other with them.

19 Fire Drills

I had a real fire in grade 4.
