Writing a memoir, which are short stories from a person’s life focused on an event.

Choose one of the following to write about:

 

  • Which one of your parents are you most like? Include a description of the parent, so that we can picture them in our mind.  Use sensory language: see, taste, touch, smell, hear.
  • Who was your first best friend? How did they influence your life?  Include a description of your friend, so that we can picture them in our mind.  Use sensory language: see, taste, touch, smell, hear.
  • What will your obituary say about you? Include a description of you, so that we can picture you in our mind.  Use sensory language: see, taste, touch, smell, hear.

Economics

We have been learning about economics for a few weeks.  Now is your chance to tell us everything you know about economics!  Tell each other what you know about goods, services, opportunity cost, supply and demand, etc.  Talk about how your classroom checkbook and finance lessons have helped you gain more perspective to economic issues. Will you be a saver or spender when you grow up?  Why is it important to save for a “rainy day?”  This blog post will be graded and if possible, please print it out with your name on it!  Happy saving/spending! 🙂

Eleven

After reading the passage, Eleven, explain why the author does not like being age 11.  If you could choose any age to be, what would it be and why?  Use evidence or related topics from the passage if possible.
