I know teachers usually have negative feelings about video games. Kids need to go outside and play and when they’re inside, they need to read and do learning activities… I get it. Thing is, I love video games myself and I can’t argue with the draw.
This morning, David came up to me with a question.
“Mr. _______, do you know that game, Mario Brothers for Wii?” He posed.
“Oh yes, I love that game, it’s so much fun,” I replied.
“Mr. ______, I can’t stop playing it, I am addicted,” he said rather seriously.
I suppose there are many worse things to be addicted to than Super Mario Brothers for Wii, so David should be just fine.
