10 Life Lessons Learned in Elementary School

Elementary school is very important in every child’s psychological development, we never stop learning life lessons, but in this article, we focused on 10 life lessons learned in elementary school.

Children constantly learn from observing others, therefore it is no surprise that children acquire small wisdoms from various everyday situations in elementary school. Elementary school can be a very stressful experience for children, especially the first grade when everything is new and unfamiliar. It is in elementary school where children first learn how to interact with others, they acquire critical thinking and learn the importance of constant learning. Teachers have an immense influence on children; they are truly the leaders who shape our future leaders. Nevertheless, children can also teach their teachers or at least remind them of honesty, joy and innocence that the children carry in the hearts. If you don’t remember your experience from elementary school and you prefer your memories from high school then read the article on Important Life Lessons that you Learn in High School. As we said before, we never truly stop acquiring life lessons.

10 Life Lessons Learned in Elementary School


Every school teaches differently, whether you had a bad teacher or a good one (if you’re lucky) there’s always a lesson. For example, children in Japanese elementary schools learn from a young age about the importance of cleaning after themselves. Some schools in Tokyo encourage students to spend 20 minutes a day cleaning a school. Imagine all life lessons children learn about kindness, sharing and cleaning the space where they spent time. Once children learn how to appreciate the space they’re in they will never violate it and destroy it with carelessness.

In order to conduct a list below we’ve consulted pages such as Our Everyday Life, Edutopia, and Read Simple, where readers shared their significant life lessons learned in elementary school. After reading different experiences and adding some of our own, we tried to highlight these 10 life lessons that are generally the ones the majority shares. As always don’t be a stranger reader and share your experience in the comments. We would love to hear some of your interesting life lessons you learned in elementary school.
