Writing Prompt: Virtual Yearbook

Posted by at 1:59 am in Summer, Writing Prompt | Permalink

Writingprompt_generic Now that the school year is over, and summer vacation is here, today's Writing Prompt is a perfect time to reflect on the school year gone by. (Do I sound like a yearbook editor?!) Maybe you made your first best friend, took a special trip, won an award in school, or made it to the championships with a sports team. Or maybe you had your first crush, got a pet, did volunteer work, or won a hot dog eating contest!

Is there any one thing that happened this year that you will remember for the rest of your life? Or maybe something you are super proud of? Something that made you learn a lot, or cry, or feel on top of the world?

Let us know in the Comments below, and we'll try to collect the most comments we can to create a virtual yearbook. Then you can scroll through, and see what other kids found most memorable from this school year. Let's see how many we can get!

    One thing I’ll remember is my friends. I miss them all, and we got separated because now i’m homeschooled. they keep in contact with me, but not lately anymore. They seem to have forgotten me. I already know that they have bonded closer, leaving me out. I haven’t seen any since last year. They probably won’t recognize me if I see them…

    This year was the BEST year of my life!
    I miss it so much that I actually wish that it never ended!! (no kidding)
    > So first of, my friends and I tried to make a pH scale but we were unsuccessful so we named it SHLUSH!
    > We got into our very first detention for running in the corridords. (lol)
    > We directed, wrote and put together a play ourselves as a class.
    > I printed a standee of the Chuburji Gate (for our play) on flex and at the end of the year everyone signed it with a special section for the Poterheads!
    > When we were in the middle of a math test and a junior student outside shouted to her friend in Urdu “aren’t you my friend?” *breaking the silence*
    > When our class beat all the other classes in the grade six baseball matches.
    > When I got selected for the inter- house reading competition. ( and came in third)

    I think most memribal thing that happened this past school year was when me and my to friends were picking up garbage.Then one of my friends picked up a white fuzzy thing with bare hands”what is this”she said gestering to my hand. I told my friend what it was and she screamed and threw it in the garbage. After putting layers and layers of handsanitizer and soap on, we laughed about it from this day on we call it a”Marsmellow”
    p.s. it wasn’t really a marshmellow

    I’m home schooled, so I go to co-op and get together with friends. I really liked this year. It was fun my first year of homeschooling. What I liked most is we get to do a yearbook for co-op. I think I’m going to sign my crush’s yearbook. I’m nervous.:)

    I got a high national ranking in math league (can’t say exactly what because of privacy) and I was picked by my teachers as best student in all of my reading teacher’s classes, as well as most outstanding girl in sixth grade choir. I was also one of two sixth graders to make it into Women’s Choir after school, and I made the advanced choir for next school year. So excited for seventh grade!

    Some funny things that happened in 5th grade (my last year *sniff*) was the whole 5th grade goes on a overnight camp. And while we were canoeing, SOMEBODY (you know who you are!) spashed water on my bottom! And we had to have a slow dance at camp too. It was funny! Most guys and girls ran to “Use the bathroom” or “Get a drink of water” (me being one of them). My (used to be) friend ended up dancing with my mortal enemy. And most girls and ALL guys plugged their ears and groaned when Justin Beiber came on (me including).

    Well I really enjoyed my first year of middle school. I found out it is much easyier to be friends with guys, but I have a lot of friends(boys and girls). I skipped a grade of math and I feel very proud of myself for making it through the year with good grades in that class… Next year I’ll be in 7th grade so my math level goes up to 8th grade algebra. So I’m very proud of that. Great memories to cherish this year.

    I made lots of friends but when we graduated, I was this close to tears. They played Graduation: Friends Forever-Vitamin C. There were a lot of pictures for Spree Day. We had Tai Kwon Do, Tug of War, and a lot of other stuff.
    In one of my volleyball pics, I was in mid-hit and I looked hilarious. The photographer made CDs of the slideshow and now whenever I watch it, I cry.
    I won’t see anyone from my class besides two of them and I miss the others so much. I cried through the end of school, the whole busride home, to my grandmother’s house and finally calmed down in my cousin’s room. That is called loving your enemies.

    6th grade was awesome!!!!!!!!!! the best part was my ski break. i drove up to the resort with one of my best friends and that started it all. one day we were in line for a lift and we were randomly put on it with these two guys from school that we were really good friends with. after that day the four of us skied together and had sooooo much fun!!! when we were done skiing we always went and ice skated and made smores. on our last day there for three us of it started to snow super hard. since we had all checked out of our cabins we ended up staying with the one family that hadn’t left over night. there were many other amazing parts of 6th grade but that was by far the best!!!

    Last week my parents and I took a summer vacation to Florida.I earned the chance to be a dolphin trainer for a day at the Dolphin Research Center because I earned all A’s this year. I worked super hard for my goal to be a trainer for a day. It was awesome. The Dolphins I worked with were named Molly, Santini , Louie, Rainbow , Pandora , Tanner and Kibby and Jax. These dolphins were all born at the center or rescued. Jax survived a shark attack and Louie survived the BP oil spill. When I swam with Santini and she pulled me around the lagoon I felt exhilarated.I learned how to whistle train. Now I am using this on my dogs.

    … I have part of a song… “Don’t wanna see you go, but it’s not forever, not forever/ And even if it was you know that I would never let it get me down/ Cause you’re the part of me that makes me better, wherever I go/ So I will try, not to cry, but we don’t have to say goodbye!”- A Very Potter Sequel, “Days of Summer” … it’s not a memory, and really the whole song works, but I like it :)

    this year i accomplished many things. The one i will remember most is getting straught a’s all yeatr. this was very hard to do but in the end i know it will pay off. Another major accomplishment is getting first place in the science fair. At school we hav a science fir and i got first place. The school then asked me to go to county which i did and i got third place. This took alot of time and dedication and it really paid off

    My gosh, of course.
    This year, I had the best class ever. We were so close and ended up like one big family.
    I have so many amazing memories. This one kid had his own anthem. You know the song “Magic”, which was covered by Selena Gomez? Well, he ALWAYS used to go, “Oh,oh,oh it’s ADRIK!”.
    Another time, I swore that Disney Channel was spying on us (I still claim that! Mason’s dad in the Navy? NOT A COINCIDENCE!).
    This year, a guy told me he liked me. That was a really awkward part, and it messed up our friendship.
    We had a 5th Grade graduation, where our class almost did a flash-mob, before the DJ found out and terminated the plans.
    5th Grade was definitely the best year so far. I could write more, but it’d be the length of a book. My class was so amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better one.
