Deirdre Blackmore’s fourth-graders at Langley Park Elementary in Hyattsville are the Class of KidsPost for September. Their favorites include things that just don’t go out of style: Dr. Seuss, Monopoly and pepperoni pizza. This is the first Class of KidsPost for the school year. If you’d like to see your class featured, ask your teacher to go to kidspost.com to download our questionnaire, fill it out and send it, along with a class picture, to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your class is chosen, we’ll send you a KidsPost Chesapeake Bay poster and KidsPost pencils.
The favorites include Monopoly, “Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing” and sports games.
Ms. Blackmore’s students don’t spend much time online — less than two hours each week.
The colorful Cool-math.com, which features math games, jigsaw puzzles, mazes and strategy games, was number one with these kids.
No debate here. Pepperoni was preferred.
There was a tie. Chocolate and vanilla were top vote-getters.
The variety of career choices among the fourth-graders included teachers, police officers, basketball players, doctors and members of the military.
These kids decided that the biggest problems are pollution, global warming and airplane safety.
