“Our class has made something beautiful, and we are so proud of it.
In our unit on personal narratives, the children have been learning how to write their six-word memories - or memoirs, if they're feeling fancy. You see, there is a legend that tells about Ernest Hemingway's shortest story. He wrote: Baby shoes. For Sale. Never Worn.
With just six words, writers have to be very careful to choose the most powerful words, and we have compiled our own list of six-word memoirs.
Here are some of the memoirs the children have written:
BFF met over loving same book
New sibling. Annoying. Still annoying.
Stuff happens. Just get back up.
Fourth grade. New teacher. More friends.
Winter birthday. Snow. Hot chocolate. Family.
Great things happen when you try.
We are learning how to click save, send, and publish, and now we present to you, our first book: Great Things Happen When You Try.
Our book is for sale on Amazon, and all proceeds will go to SkyView during our school-wide fundraiser.
Amazingly, and to our great delight, this book has already made a big splash. Great Things Happen When You Try has ranked as a #1 New Release on Amazon this week.”
