C Lots of kids hate school, a new study found. Usually this kind of feeling doesn’t last long, but what happens if you feel this way too much? School is a part of life and getting a good education can help you build the kind of future life you want. So let’s talk about school and what to do when you don’t like it. If you don’t like school, the first step is to find out why. You might not like school because you don’t have enough friends, or maybe you don’t get along with your teacher. Sometimes there is a big problem with your schoolwork. Then you may be getting farther and farther behind, and it may seem that you’ll never catch up. When you know why you don’t like school, you can start taking steps to make things better. It’s a good idea to talk to someone about your problems with school. Your mum, dad, teacher or school counselor(顾问) will be able to help you. Another good idea is to write down your feelings about school in a notebook. It’s a great way to let out emotions(情绪).

example, if we want to use our money wisely, we need to shop carefully. We need to know how to compare(对比) the prices of the things in different shops. We need to be able to compare the quality of different brands(品牌). We need to know how to make a choice when we shop.

We have to realize that the choices we make can affect(影响) the rest of our lives. Just as importantly, our choices can also affect other people. The next time you decide to waste time in class, play a joke on someone or talk loudly at the cinemas, think about this: Who else does your choice affect? ( ) 56.

作文范文： Nowadays playing computer games is a very common hobby, especially among teenagers. However, different people have different opinions about playing computer games. Some people think playing computer games can help them type faster. In addition, it can make your relationship with your friends and family members better and closer.
Others think playing computer games too much can lead to some problems. Firstly, spending long time in front of the computer screen will bring health problems, for example, it will make you more near-sighted and bring you headache. Secondly, spending too much time in playing computer games may make your grades lower/worse. In my opinion, as students, we shouldn’t play computer games too much. It’s bad for us. We should try to control ourselves.
