The 17 fifth-graders in Charlene Howard's class at St. Francis DeSales School in the District are this week's Class of KidsPost. Here's some of what they told us about themselves.

* Favorite author: Roald Dahl is the fave with six votes.

* Favorite TV show: "That's So Raven" (five votes) beat out "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" (two votes).

* Favorite thing to do with your family: Make dinner reservations for this group. Six kids said "go out to dinner."

* Favorite sport: Basketball (five votes) edged football (four).

* Time spent on the Internet each week: Five kids said less than an hour. Five others said 1-2 hours.

* How do you listen to music? Eight kids said they listen on the radio. CD players, iPods and "don't listen much" each got three votes.

* What subject do you wish was taught at your school? Five students said they wanted to learn Spanish.

* Favorite ice cream flavor: Chocolate (five votes) won a narrow victory. Vanilla and chocolate chip cookie dough each got four.
