I will never forget the test I took in third grade before I was one of 3 children in my grade admitted into the "Academically Talented" program. I found it to be so incredibly fun and interesting. It was not book-smarts (as I find myself to be only average with those things), but it was like a bunch of puzzles. At the time I had no idea what it was for... I just found it to be so enjoyable. And the program itself was a lot of fun, too-- we got do "stories with holes in them" and design board games and have our own news program. While much of school bored me, that program excited me!
