In a 2005 survey of 2005 schoolchildren in six cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, it was found that about 77% of them were short of sleep. Should school hours be cut? In new survey taken by the China Daily website, almost 70% of the 1, 133 people online agreed with cutting school hours, while 20% disagreed and 10% gave no answer.
Liu Xing (12-year-old, 6-grade student): I get up at 5:50 every school day, have breakfast at 6:15, leave home at 6:30 and, after a 30-minute bus ride, arrive at school at 7:00, a full hour before lessons start. Besides, I spend my weekends taking classes in math and English, as well as learning to play the piano.

Thirty years ago, I walked into your bakery and asked for some loaves(条) of bread to sell. At that time, I was 12 years old. A young lady s 71 me that day. She gave me five loaves and wished me good l 72 .
I took the loaves and went out to sell them. It t 73 me all day, but I sold them all. At the e 74 of the day, I had some money. I was the h 75 boy in the world as I walked home that evening.
The next day, I went to a bicycle shop. I paid a deposit(定金) on a new bicycle.. And then I started my next j 76 as a newspaper delivery boy. Soon I c 77 pay the rest of the money for the bicycle and the bike was mine. I was so proud of m 78 !
Today I still work in the delivery business. I have a lot of trucks to send goods all over the country. I live in a beautiful house, but I don’t ride a bicycle these days. I drive a large nice car.

Playing is serous business for children. In fact, it’s what they do best! Ask them why they do it, and kids will probably say, “Because it’s fun!” But it’s much more than that. It’s also good for them.
83 Studies show that from birth babies begin learning through play. They use their five senses to get know their new world. Touching allows them to discover how different things feel. Brightly colored toys and clothing help develop a baby’s sense of sight(视觉).
When small children choose which toy to play with, they begin developing their abilities in making decisions.
Children love toys that allow them to use their imagination. Sometimes an empty box is more fun than a high-tech toy. That’s because a box can become anything a child imagines it to be.
Crayons, paints and Play-Doh(彩色塑泥) are also good because they allow children to crate. Traditional building blocks teach important pre-math skills like problem-solving.
84 Playing doesn’t become any less important once children start school. Many valuable(有价值的) lessons about life are learned on the school playground. Kids learn how to share, take turns and play by the rules.
81. What can children do best in their childhood?
82. What kind of toys do children love?
The boy is to go to school.
