The Giver Memories by Norman

If I were the Giver and I were to give away memories, the first one I would give away would be one of something the person doesn’t know about. Like a memory of a banquet, or of dancing in the rain. The last memory would be my favorite unless the person asked for it. I would give away a memory like that because I would want the person to be happy.


What Memory Would I Give Away? By Davi


In Language Arts class we are reading a book called The Giver. In The Giver, the Giver gives memories to the main character Jonas, as part of his training. The memory then disappears, or fades to almost nothing.

I would give away the memory of the beach in Peru. I would give this memory away because it is one of the best I have. The community in The Giver probably doesn’t know what a beach is, so I want to give them that memory. The beach is fun, beautiful, and not always crowded. The residents of the town in The Giver would, most certainly enjoy a memory of the beach.

In language arts class we are reading The Giver by: Louis Lowry. The first memory I would give is when I got my dog! I would give this memory first because it shows love, family, pets and caring all in one memory! She bounded up to me and jumped into my arms, she liked me and my sister and was so lively, and happy my family knew we had to have her! She played with us, climbed on top of us and stayed with us. She was welcomed into my family instantly and well loved from the second we saw her. It is truly one of the best memories that I have!

In Language Arts class we are reading The Giver. In The Giver, the Giver gives the Receiver memories, especially the memory of snow. If I were the Giver I would give him the memory of the beach because there is sun shining, the ocean, sandcastles, and boogie boarding, and body surfing. My favorite is swimming in the ocean. There is so much to do at the beach.  I love the beach so much and this is why I would give the memory to the Receiver.

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.


What Memory I Would Give Away First by Noah

In the book The Giver there is a role called the The Giver, this special role’s responsibility is to transfer memories to the Receiver. If I were The Giver, the first memory I would give is my first time wake boarding. I would give this memory because it was really fun and exhilarating and I had a sense of accomplishment after I couldn’t get up in the previous couple tries.


Memory by Julia






As you know, we are still reading The Giver by Lois Lowry in Language Arts class. This book is about a perfect society where they are no choices, war, or feelings. The only exception is The Receiver, who receives memories of the past from the previous Receiver. Jonas has been selected as the new Receiver and the first memory that The Giver gives to Jonas is of snow.

The first memory is would give to the new Receiver would probably be of going down a water slide. I know that this seems like a weird memory to give, but the people in this community are already accustomed to water and swimming, but they are not accustomed to hills, weather, or even color. I think that the water slide would be a good memory because it incorporates something that is familiar but also something new, fun and exciting.

The Ideal Teacher by: Davi

For me, an ideal teacher would be a person who listens; a person who doesn’t think that they are superior to the students because of their age. A ideal teacher would be a person who understands kids, and helps them with their problems.

These days, teachers aren’t always open to suggestions. They have their lessons already in their head, and they don’t listen to new ideas. There will always be teachers like that. Then there are some teachers who are close, if not already ideal. They are open, listen to their students, and treat their students as equals; no matter if they are young or old, big or small, or the same religion or race. They treat their students as if they were fully fledged adults; with respect and kindness. That, is an ideal teacher.

The Ideal Teacher by Noah


In language arts class we are currently reading The Giver. In this book, the setting is in an ideal community where everything is perfect in the eyes of the people who live there. An ideal teacher in the ideal community would treat kids nicely, explain directions thoroughly and be patient. Some things that an ideal teacher shouldn’t do are: don’t just give worksheet after worksheet and project after project, this just makes students very tired out. Instead of giving thousands of worksheets and just handing them in, take a while and discuss them. Ideal teachers should also incorporate fun projects and not make them due in a very short period of time.

Right now in Language Arts we are reading The Giver by Lois Lowry. This book is about a perfect society. The perfect teacher to me would be a lot of things. The perfect teacher to me would joke around with the class, but also be serious when teaching. One of the most important qualities in a teacher for me is motivating. Motivating can mean a lot of different things, but for me it means that I know that there is always someone that I can see when I get a not so amazing grade. Someone that I know will explain a concept to me until I understand, no matter how many times it takes. But most of all, someone that is like a friend to me. I know that they would be older than me, but they would be there for me like a friend.
