10 Things That Helped Us All Survive Elementary School In The 90s

Going to elementary school is something that we all had to do, but we all had different experiences. Socially, elementary school was a battlefield. It was exhausting and more dramatic than it needed to be, but at least we all grew up before the internet was a thing. Nowadays kids have to deal with their bullies following them home, at least virtually, and never getting a chance to be alone. Even if it's from their friends, kids should have some time to themselves, right? Disney ChannelWell, when we grew up in the 90s, times were just a lot simpler. Who

5 Reasons Why The Scholastic Book Fair Will Always Be The Best Part Of Elementary School

Being in school 5 days a week is kind of like having a full time job, only instead of getting paid in money, you have to sit there and learn. You get sent home with homework, you have to write book reports, you have tests and presentations and all of it is a lot of effort for a growing brain. But there was a place, one beautiful reprieve from our tortuous experience where we could feel at peace. That place was the Scholastic Book Fair. Once a year our schools would treat us by bringing the book orders to life.

8 Lies Our Parents Told Us That We Believed For An Embarrassingly Long Time

Our parents, our grandparents, and sometimes even our teachers would have to tell us things to make us do what was best for us. But sometimes, they seemed to have told us a bunch of lies that were just nothing more than downright false. Sure, it's understandable when they need to make sure we eat our veggies or go to bed early enough so we aren't cranky the next day, but honestly, some of the things our parents said were just completely false for no reason. I don't know why they have to lie to us. I mean, I guess

7 Weird Rules We Were Forced To Follow At School That We're Still Cranky About To This Day

Elementary school, middle school (or junior high depending on where in the country you are), and high school are probably the scariest years of your life. Yes, there is all this propaganda that claims that they are "the best years of your life," but if that's true, then oh boy... There were so many rules and regulations, all of which were claiming to be in place for our own good, but a lot of the time it felt as though they were just completely ridiculous. Do you ever wonder if it was just a crazy power trip? Were they just

They Told Us They Could Erase Pen, But It Turns Out Blue Erasers Have An Entirely Different Purpose

Going to class and using pen was a pretty confident move. What, you don't think you're going to make a mistake? I spell my own name wrong on a regular basis, how can you be so sure of yourself? Well, then came those blue erasers. The so-called pen erasers would help even those who are overconfident in their spelling abilities. In theory, they were supposed to remove the pen from your paper, or at least that's what we all thought. Instead, we would be left with torn paper and illegible notes. I was always terrified of writing in pen, so

7 Things The "Bad Kids" In Your Class Always Did No Matter How Much The Teacher Yelled

As a former good-two-shoes, I can't pretend like I did any of those cool "bad" kid things, but I do remember seeing them all happen. Elementary school was basically a battle between the teachers and the students, and their weapons may not have been very advanced, but they were effective. A teacher could assign as much homework as they wanted, but as a kid, your attacks are limited. You don't have a lot of things you can do that will solidify your cool kid status without having you kicked out of school. It wasn't easy, but I guess some of

8 Memories We All Have From Elementary School Lunch Time

Elementary school lunches were something that I will never forget. I have no idea why they were so memorable, but they are what I remember most from school. 1. Halloween trade-off.Ah November 1st, National Candy Trade-Off Day. This was the one day a year that every kid would come to school with a lunch box full of candy, and whatever your mom packed you underneath it, which did not matter. If you were smart, you brought all the candy you got from the night before that you hated. Everyone traded off, and the best candy went to the highest
