Mem Fox Author Study

What Is a Memory?

The students made many connections with Mem Fox's book Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge.  Besides making Memory Baskets and writing metaphoric poems, the students gathered a collection of items that were warm, sad, from long ago, made them laugh, cry or reminded them of a happy moment, and something that was as precious as gold.  

During the Memory Show and Share on Friday I, myself, was taken down memory lane and reflected on the amazing growth of these first graders.  They make each of my day filled with so many precious memories :)

Enjoy reading their amazing memories :)  Click on each child's name to be taken to their writing.
