Favorite School Year

What Was Your Favorite Grade in School and Why?

When asked which grade was their favorite, most people can answer without hesitation. Whether it was the teacher, the classmates, or the lessons, there's something that reminds them of the joy they celebrated for one year of their life. Kindergarten is full of firsts and new friends, but subsequent grades offer P.E., drama classes, learning how to jump rope, taking field trips, and participating in school talent shows. While I loved most every minute of elementary school, second grade was my most cherished year. My teacher, Mrs. Wright, who coincidentally was never wrong, was sharp, witty, quick to discipline, and never short on laughs. If someone wasn't behaving well, she'd threaten to sit on them and occasionally she did, though it was mostly for show and giggles. I can only hope my children are lucky enough to have a Mrs. Wright and irreplaceable friends placed along their school path. What was your favorite grade and why?

oh lil, that does sound fun! my 7th, 8th and 9th grades were really great because i was part of a school w/i a school. it was a kind of experiment where all the kids (maybe 25 of us) had all of our classes together. the girls all got along, constant slumber parties and lunch pow-wows. then high school came and we all went our seperate ways :(

Sixth grade was my favorite because we had a young, energetic teacher named Miss Ambrosi. She gave every kid a chance and agreed to also be our softball coach when no one signed up. We performed Grease as a class at the end of the year.
