A Counting Contest
The three boys walked over to the square table. They each placed a
shiny quarter on it. A friendly woman tied green towels around their
necks. She placed a slice of red watermelon in front of each of them.
Then she said, "Eat your watermelon. Save the black seeds. The one with
the most seeds wins $2.00. Begin!"
The happy boys quickly ate the watermelon and counted the seeds.
George had 10, Hernando had 1 2, and Len had 15.
"Hooray! I win!" shouted lucky Len. "Let's celebrate! I'll buy all of us big
ice cream cones."

Early in the summer, Mark got a new skateboard for
his birthday. Sirrce then, he had been on the skateboard
every day. He did nothing but practice every hour that
he was awake.
Mark's parents made sure
that he learned to skateboard on
their driveway, where it was
safe. They told him that he must
always wear long pants and
shoes. They also gave him the
right safety equipment. He had
a helmet, knee pads, elbow
pads, and gloves.
Mark was good at sports.
ln no time, he was better at
skateboarding than his friends.
"l can't wait around for you
snails to learn! l'm too good!"
boasted Mark. "l'm going to the
skateboard bowl where there are
high rampsJ'
\
N
Soon Mark no longer saw his
old friends. He was too busy at
the ramp talking to the older boys
and learning new tricks. The big
boys taught him "kick turns,"
"wheelies," and "lip tricks."
Mark got better and better
at skateboarding. Everyone said
that he would be a champion
some day.
44
But Mark was not a champ at home. He never
helped with any of the work around the house oL yard.
He never answered when his parents talked to him. He
acted as if his little sister Julie was not even there. He
did not look at her, help her, or say a word to her.
His school friends did not want to be around Mark.
He always boasted about how great he was on the
skateboard. He made fun of them all the time because
they were not as good as he was.
Mark was so busy thinking of himself' that he forgot
his family was going to the beach for a week. When Dad
reminded him to pack his swimsuit and fins, Mark was
upset. "l am not going to that stupid beach!" he
shouted. "l do not want to do anything but skateboard!"
Mom shut her ears. She packed Mark's things, but
she did not put in any of his skateboard equipment. 'We
are going to the beach, and so are you;' she told Mark.
Once he got to the beach, Mark started to have fun
swimrning, fishing, and learning to dive. He did not think
much about skateboarding until the family went to a mall
to shop. Mark saw that a smooth sidewalk went down a
hill from the mall to the parking lot. "That hill is perfect
for skateboarding," he thought. r
45
Then one day, Eric, a friend Mark had made at the
beach, showed 'Mark his skateboard. Mark grabbed the
board from Eric and headed toward the mall.
Eric tried to get his board back. 'You can't
skateboard," he said to Mark. "You don't have any
equipment. You are not even wearing shoes."
But Mark kept going. When they got to the mall, he
jumped on the board. He did not even look down the
hill to see if there was anything or anyone in the way.
ZOOM! ZOOM! Down he went! People jumped out of the
way as Mark raced past.
There were some tiny stones on the sidewalk. Mark
did not see them. BANG! The skateboard wheels hit the
stones! Mark did a backward flip and smashed down on
the sidewalk.
It was an awful day for Mark. When he came to, he
was at the hospital. He had two broken bones in his left
arm, three broken bones in his right arm, and mashed
toes on both his feet. The doctor told Mark that toes that
get mashed from skateboarding without shoes are called
"hamburger toes."
The doctor also said that many skateboarders break
their elbow bones. These breaks are called "skateboard
elbows." "You're the champion!" the doctor said to Mark.
"You've got not one, but two skateboard elbows."
Underline the right answer to each question.
1. What do we know about Mark?
a. He helped his sister all the time.
b. He boasted a lot.
c. He liked to work in the garden.
d. He did good work in school.
