Good Feeling Book

Tonight I have been thinking back to a project from grade school.

This coming weekend is the High School reunion for the class I would have graduated from in Ottumwa, Iowa if we had not moved away to Kansas after my 5th grade year.

I am in touch with many of the kids that I went to grade school with and would attend the reunion if I didn’t live so far away.

Good Feeling Book, Grade School, Writing, Classmates, MemoriesWhen I was in second grade with Miss Norris at Douma Grade School we had an assignment where we wrote good things about our classmates. The papers were then collated and we put them together into a ‘Good Feeling Book’.

She also wrote good reader. I was definitely known as a reader. Several other of the pages that I am not sharing mentioned me as a spy. I must have been a little sneaky. Most likely it was because I was always looking into things and trying to understand them. A trait that carries on today.

This project definitely brings back good memories and good feelings. Every once in a while I will pull it out and read through it. Especially when I am thinking about some of my oldest friends.

Do you remember any special projects from when you were in school?
