With all the kids packing up their binders and brand new agendas, it’s easy to get nostalgic. There were a lot of moments that made school super fun when we were kids. Our responsibilities were limited to what we had to do for homework and that was it.
Looking back, school isn’t really anything like what it used to be. Kids today have no idea what it was like back in our day, but I’m sure every generation says the same thing about the one that comes next. How many of these memorable things do you recognize from your experience in elementary school?
Hitting a huge bump on the bus and going flying in your seat
Getting brand new binders every year that are clean and ready to get the ‘S’ all over them
How good it felt when your pencil sharpener actually worked
And how bad it was when it just chewed up your pencil into an enormous mess
Seeing those classic borders around the classroom of cursive writing
Gym mats and how they were essentially useless
Almost losing a finger to the scooter boards
How bad those pinnies all smelled
But how good it was to play with that giant parachute
How using the school-provided scissors was absolutely the worst
What else do you remember about being in school?
Playing with glue on your hand
