do does doing make makes making
Our children don’t do much homework, but they do a lot of work in
school. My son George likes making furniture and things like that more than doing lessons. He sometimes makes nice chairs out of old boxes in his class. He
and his friends make a lot of noise while they are working, of course.
George is good at sport: he does the high jump very well. Such sport does
children a lot of good, I think. Don’t you?
