  1. I loved english and reading when I was a kid.
    I hope my kids like them too!

  2. English English Enlish. I LOVED reading and writing. Hated math. Oh, and loved the Teacher’s Aid period. DIdn’t have to do anything!

  3. tracy rizzo says

    I loved history and literature-anything involving reading-i still do!!

  4. I remember the days leading up to the beginning of the new school year. We got so excited about our new school supplies, new teacher, new classroom, even the new homework. It was fun to get back in the swing of things. My favorite subject by far was English. I love to read.

  5. hands down my favourite subject was math — the answers were either right or wrong, no middle ground (at least not at that level), no arguments.

  6. My favotite was art. It didn’t feel like school.

  7. I absolutely loved art history in 5th grade. My friend’s mom was a curator at our local museum and volunteered to teach art history to us. Fun!

  8. My favorite subject was math. I used to take 3 or 4 math classes per semester in high school (math, math team, math sat prep…)

  9. I’m going back to school full time at the ripe old age of 32. My daughter is 7 months and I hope that I can teach her how important education is. Of course, now that I’ve quit my job a free backpack would be super helpful!

  10. I loved gym–is that a subject???

  11. Does recess count? My favorite subject was history.

  12. I loved (still do) music. For a long time I wanted to a music teacher. Now, I don’t know what I want to be when I “grow up”.

  13. my favorite experience was 2nd grade science fair! I knew my project was the best, but I was placed 2nd to the cutest guy in school so I didnt mind!

  14. Oh, English by far. I started keeping a list of the books I read in 4th grade. I still keep the list and love to look back over all the books I’ve read from childhood until the present.

  15. I loved art and english. Still do!

  16. Adrienne B says

    Definitely math. I went on to major in civil engineering but now I use those high level skills I learned on my two sons!

  17. It was a math/science toss up for me! But then I guess they could kind of be considered the same subject much of the time. 🙂

  18. I always enjoyed science. My favorite course of all times was in college, Embryology.

  19. I enjoyed a lot of subjects: instrumental music, geography, science. But in grade 12 I *loved* math. I don’t know why. In any case, I was inspired to take grade 13 calculus (where I went to school, grade 13 was required for university admission) in summer school. The whole course in 4 weeks. The first class, the teacher leaned on his desk, chuckled meanly, and announced, “Five hours a day of math; your worst nightmare.” Indeed, whatever crazy love I’d developed for math in grade 12 was long over by the time I sat the final calculus exam!

  20. Michelle G says

    I loved algebra. I know, I’m strange… 🙂 But I had a great teacher and she made it “click” for me. And there was something satisfying in solving for “y”.

  21. Sonja Heiser says

    English and drama were always my favorite classes. I suppose that’s why I am now a reading and writing teacher in a middle school (i.e. academics plus never-ending drama).

  22. Loved English! I could still spend a reading if I had the chance.

  23. I was a band geek. I looked forward to band class every day. Looking back I can see how awkward I was, but at the time I really enjoyed myself!

  24. My favorite subjects were always English & Art….or any time that I could read in class!

  25. Well, this will come as no surprise. My favorite classes were Public Speaking, Composition, AP Composition and Journalism. 🙂

  26. My favorites were English and Social Studies 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway!

  27. Amber Gros says

    My favorite subject would have to be Government. I know I’m weird. I found it extremely fascinating how everything worked.

  28. Biology was by far my favorite. Not quite the amount of writing required for langauge arts, but not as abstract as math.

  29. Alice Chang says

    My fave was art!

  30. My most vivid school memory was 4th grade and how terrible it was for me. My oldest daughter is now in fourth grade and I am looking forward to erasing my old memories with great ones this year!

  31. I was the 6th grade school spelling bee winner and am still bragging about it (at the age of 32!)

  32. Mine was Spanish, and boy I am lucky I did well in that class because hubby is from Guatemala and I wouldn’t be able to talk very much to him if I didn’t study Spanish in school! Everyone thought it was funny that a girl from a French-Canadian family living in Maine would be taking Spanish, but it certainly came in handy now, didn’t it?

  33. I loved art in school, and still enjoy it to this day.

  34. Loved algebra! Just made sense…so much so, could finish homework in class so no homework!

  35. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved art.
    I can remember drawing and painting for hours on end, even before I started school.
    I went on toe get two advanced degrees in art and I am now a full-time professional ceramic artist.

  36. Meg Pasquerella says

    Reading and Math!

  37. Usually English, but PE was my favorite when it was time for social dance!

  38. I loved English – i can never get enough of a good book – too bad I don’t have tons of time to read these days!!!

  39. Geometry was my fave. I had ever theorem and postulate memorized word for word. I wonder if I remember any of it now? Haha…

  40. AnhThu Hoang says

    Since I grew up in a small town, my favorite subject was social studies where we learned about foreign cultures and different social systems. That’s probably why my favorite hobby is traveling. My mother always said I always had one foot out the door.

  41. My fav subjects were History and Geography, loved learning about different cultures and places.

  42. My favorite subjects as a kid were English and Reading.

  43. I loved art class! One of my fondest memories is winning an art contest in kinder about self portraits. I drew myself looking out a window, and i was one of the winners. It got hung in the hall of my elementary school. Some 20 years later, and it’s still there! (Wonder if i can ask to keep it! LOL)

  44. Carey Waye says

    I always liked English, because it was easy for me and I got A’s on my papers. I dreaded PE and would spend most of the period hiding in the outfield during kickball and praying the ball wouldn’t head toward me.

  45. I loved my english literature class. I could curl up with a good book for hours and hours and hours! Although my “me” time is very limited nowadays, that’s still my #1 go-to when I have a few minutes to myself!

  46. 9th grade History – lots of movies were shown, though all I saw were the insides of my eyelids!

  47. Jeraldine Orlina says

    I loved music. It gave me an excuse to sing in public!

  48. My favorite subject was music in elementary school. I went to school in S.F. and there was not a dedicated classroom for our weekly music class. We met in an alcove in the cafeteria. I still remember the smell of mac and cheese and the dreaded fish sticks as we made our way through the cafeteria. Only on the days that they were serving roasted turkey and mashed potatoes, did I look forward to music class!

  49. My favorite subject was always science as a kid.

  50. My favorite subject when I was kid was math and art and my kids love the same subject too.
