In Language Arts class we are reading the book “The Giver.” In this book Jonas a young boy lives in a perfect community, no pain, no war and no choices. Though, Jonas has been chosen to be the new Receiver, who is a person who receives all memories from the past, including pain, war, feelings and happiness. The current Receiver trains Jonas by transmitting memories to him of the past. Jonas has to experience everything that the Giver had which includes lots of pain.

If I were the Receiver, the first memory I would give away would be the beach. The beach is very peaceful, comforting, and relaxing. It would be a good memory where Jonas would experience warmth and comfort. He would see the seagulls flying above him looking for food, and he would see the shells all different shapes and sizes. He would hear the ocean and the children laughing while playing in the water. He would feel the sand beneath him, warm and soft. He would be happy, lying their the sun beaming down on him, it would be his happy place to go to when he was in pain, or needed to get away. It would be a pleasant, perfect memory to give away.


The Memory I Would First Give Away Batu P.

The memory I would first give away would be happiness. I would give that memory away first because it is a present memory. Happiness is a felling that can’t be left out. It is what makes you feel joy and excitement. Without happiness there would be no joy on a birthday or Christmas. The list goes on and on. If you would give away a memory what would it be?


The Memory That I Would Give Away First by Grace






In the Donnelly Blue Language Arts class we are reading the book “The Giver”. In it Jonas, the main character, is the new Receiver of Memory, and the current Receiver of Memory is in the process of giving him all the memories in the world.

The memory that I think I would give first is the memory of a birthday party, because everyone is really happy, and you are getting presents, and everyone is feeling love, joy, friendship, closeness, warmth, and happiness. Everyone is having fun. You would also experience, cake and other good foods. That is why I would chose a birthday party as the first memory I would give to someone.

In Language Arts class, we are reading The Giver. The Giver has to give away his memories to the new Receiver. If I was in his position, the first memory I would give to the new Receiver would be my memory of lacrosse. It is my favorite sport and I would hate being in a world without it. I would share the feeling of nervousness before a game, the tension when your team has the ball, and the happiness when your team wins. I would hope that it would give the new Receiver a memory of fun, friends, and sportsmanship.


Giving Away A Memory by Kira S.







In Language Arts class, we are reading a book called The Giver. In The Giver the receiver and The Giver take away all the bad memories from the people in the community and even some of the good memories.

If I were to give away a memory I would give away the memory of deaths in my family first. I would give away deaths in my family because watching family members pass away would be something that I wouldn’t want to keep seeing in my mind. I would rather remember the good things about them and not the memories of the being sick or in pain. When losing that memory, I would also gain the good memories of them and the good thoughts about them. I would also rather give away the bad memories before the happy ones.

In Language Arts class we are reading The Giver. The Giver gave Jonas the memory of snow and sledding. If I was the Giver, the memory I would give would be a memory that shows calmness and peacefulness. The memory would take place on the ocean in a sail boat. You would be riding along on the boat listening to the birds chirping and the waves crashing on the beach. You would look around, but only see the beach and water around you. You would relax. Let your mind relax and forget about all your troubles. Then just before it ends, the sun starts to set and you end it with seeing the pretty sunset while in the boat. That is the first memory I would give.


Memory I Would Give Away by Keenan

I the Language Arts class we are reading a book called The Giver. The first memory that the Giver gave to Jonas was the memory of riding on a sled. The first memory that I would give away is the memory of the beach. On the beach you can surf and build things like sand castles. This would be a good memory to give away first because the would give the Receiver the memory of fun. Fun is one of the most important memories.


My First Memory I Would Give By Joanna






If I was the Giver, I would give the memory of hiking in the mountains first, so the Receiver could get a big hill and a town and sunshine and maybe some snow all at the same time! In the memory, you would be in the middle of the mountainside and you would be looking out at the other mountains and at the bottom of this one there would be a town. Then you would keep going up and up and it starts snowing so you head back down the mountain. This memory would also transmit a little pain, too because of being tired and cold. This would be a good memory to give the new Receiver as their first memory.

My Memory I Would Give First by Shaffer

In the book, The Giver, Jonas is selected to be the next Receiver of Memory. Jonas and the current Receiver, also known as The Giver, will meet every day and The Giver will transfer his memories to Jonas. The memories are good, bad, and fun, and they can hurt. So if I were The Giver, the memory I would give first are the bad memories, but the bad memory I would give first is pain because I want to get them over with because there are more good memories than bad memories. So when were finished with the bad memories, the person I’m training will be scared and afraid and then I would give him/her all the good memories to end the training.


Memory I Would Give Away by Sheridan

If I had the chance to give away a memory to somebody, I would choose to give away the memory of family so they can feel the memory of joy, love and care. Even so, because warfare and death are very terrible and they are imprinted in my brain, so I would give them to the person. It would be very mean and cold-hearted to do something like that to someone. And since I am a caring person, I would probably give the memory of family first.
