There are many kinds of cars in this world. My grandfather thinks this is because cars are like their drivers. He says, “rich people have expensive cars, big people have large cars, and old people drive old cars. But I don?t agree with him. My neighbor Mrs Hill is 82 years old, she drives only on Tuesday and then she drives only to the bank. She never drives more than 30 kilometers an hour. Do you think Mrs Hill has a very old and small car. No, her car is new, it is very large and it can go 200 kilometers an hour. My friend Mike is an artist. He paints beautiful pictures with lots of colors. But his car is black. Mrs Bates has a very very old car. It often has some trouble. Does she drive that kind of car because she is poor? No, she has 4 restaurants and 2 million dollars in the bank. My uncle Joe has a very small car. Every Sunday he drives to the country with his wife, his three children, his mother and his dog. Now you have read about my friends and their cars, do you agree with my grandfather? Maybe you have a car, does it say something about you?”

Jacks is the name of game, it?s quite popular with the children. To play Jacks you will need a small rubber ball and ten small 9
building blocks call Jacks. Here are the rules for this game. To begin, you put the ten Jacks on the floor or ground in front of you. Through the ball up but not too high, pick up one Jack and then catch the ball. Keep the Jack in your hand, and then go on picking up the other Jacks one by one. You lose your turn if you do not catch the ball, you do not pick up the Jack or you drop any Jack from your hand. When you finish all ten Jacks, you now try to do the same thing again, but with two Jacks at one time, this is more difficult of course. You lose your turn if you make any of 3 mistakes or if you don?t pick up two Jacks each time.
