A teacher sent in this third grade test question which students in Utah will be tested on. The question comes from Pearson and is not a SAGE test question but regular pencil and paper. Although I enjoy an occasional video game with my children, and I agree with some of what is written in the article about some of the positives, I find this inappropriate because video games certainly do desensitize children and can addict them.
Ballerina on paper. Henrik Moses (Netherlands, 1968-). Moses studied art, philosophy and psychology. But, he never studied drawing or painting; he is self-taught. You can also find his works signed with his nickname Shimoda 7. “Realism is not an imitation of nature, it’s a representation of it.

A Journey to the Center of the Earth was not only the first real novel I ever read, but it was the first to teach me that you don’t always enjoy what you have to read. I was assigned to read this book in the 5th grade and to write a paper on it. It was so boring I just wanted to stop and give up, but if I did I would have failed. That book taught me that sometimes we have to read something that we don’t like to get a good grade.
