I took a survey of 87 fifth-graders at my school and asked: “What is your favorite TV show?” Here are the top three shows:

“Dance Moms” 25

“Full House” 19

ESPN’s SportsCenter 19

Other shows that received votes were “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “The Wizards of Waverly Place” and “Liv and Maddie.”

A lot of kids enjoy “Dance Moms,” as it is very popular with both girls and boys. “Dance Moms” is one of my personal favorite shows. It is a reality show about a team of young competitive dancers. Abby is the dance teacher. It is so interesting because sometimes Abby is nice and sometimes she is mean. The show is exciting and also funny. If you have never watched “Dance Moms,” I won’t spoil anything but you have to watch it!

It was interesting to see who picked what TV show. I was surprised to see that some boys liked “Dance Moms.” Good choice. I liked doing the survey, but it was also hard work. It was fun counting the votes and analyzing the results.

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

“Full House” is all reruns all the time but it is a favorite that every kid (and parent) seems to like.
