I’m very excited to begin our next writing task! Students in grades 7 and 8 will be asked to write about an amazing gift they either gave or received that cost zero dollars! Yes, no money at all! In today’s materialistic world, money seems to mean everything,,,but happiness and contentment can come without money. This comes in time for the holidays, where people shop til they drop and spend an enormous amount of money to make others happy. Is that really necessay? I look forward to the discussion .
