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…

    > 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)
