Sarah has quite a busy schedule. She attends her local elementary school on weekdays. After school she usually comes home and does her homework. Sometimes she goes to the public library to study.

At home, Sarah also does chores around her house such as washing dishes, clearing her room and taking out the trash.

Piano Lessons

In addition to work, she has hobbies. On Tuesdays she goes to the house of Mrs. Patten for piano lessons.

Sarah can now play about twenty different songs.


On Thursdays, she goes to a gym for her gymnastic class. Some of her friends are members as well, and they train together. They have participated in several competitions, though Sarah has never won.

Then there’s her art class. On Saturday mornings, Sarah joins her friends at an arts and crafts center. There they work on various art projects such as drawing, painting, ceramics, basket weaving.

Work and Play

But Sarah’s life isn’t all study and work. She also enjoys visiting her friends, going to the shopping mall and watching movies at the theater.

At this time, Sarah is undecided about what she wants to become when she grows up. Perhaps a doctor, lawyer, air stewardess, teacher, artist, concert pianist or gym coach.
