To me, music is food and water. W_1_ _ music, I can't live happily, or I will feel sad in life. I know this is not true for everybody.

We spend our lives playing or writing music.
Someone said, "T___9___ music a child goes into a world of beauty, learns to take c___10___ of others and makes his mind and body strong." Music is an important part of our lives.
Betty was a new student in my class. She was really little for her age of 12. The boys in 1. m class often laughed at her. She would open a book, pretending to 2. r , with tears dropping on the open page. I looked at this tiny girl and decided to 3. h her.
But how could I do that? One day, when I went into the classroom, I got a 4. c . I saw a picture of a train on her desk. And she was making a copy carefully. It was perfect!
I was surprised and thought that she could do something in the coming talent show. So, I took Betty to see the art teacher, Miss Parker, and showed the picture that was 5. d by Betty. “Wow, it’s wonderful, ” said Miss Parker. Then she showed us a poster she had painted 6. f the talent show．“I need more of these, but I just don’t have enough
7. t . You draw so well and even 8. b than me. Could you help me, Betty?”
On the day of the talent show, Betty’s posters were everywhere —all over the hall and all over the school, and each one is 9. d .
“And finally, ” said Mr Brown, the schoolmaster, at the end of the show, “we have an unusual 10. p . I’m sure you’ve all noticed the wonderful posters.” Everyone nodded. “One of our own students painted them.”

Last fall I walked with a friend in my hometown. He was
1. r as the most stupid one among my childhood playmates, but he has been number one in an enterprise now.
When we came to a crossing, a blind man walked from another direction. Testing the road with his bamboo pole, the blind was walking very 2. s towards the road we were going in.
I chatted with my friend as we were 3. w . I talked about my five job-hoppings(跳槽) within two years and the experiences I was still going 4. t in the plight(困境) then. My friend nodded and smiled, but he 5. k silent all along. After a while, I occasionally looked back and found the blind man had disappeared.
“Where is the blind man?” I shouted out.
“He has walked so far!” said my friend with a smile.
“How can a blind man walk much 6. f than us? It’s strange!” I said.
“Why impossible? We look in all 7. d and walk half-heartedly while he is walking whole-heartedly.” said my friend.
Hearing this, I was 8. s . What a simple 9. t ! Just think, if I had learned a little spirit of the blind man walking, how could I be down and out now?
Although the scene has passed for one year, what my
10. f said keeps lingering(挥之不去） in my ears.

Now students’ English handwriting (书法)gets worse and worse. That makes their teachers feel w__1__. Is your English handwriting beautiful? If not, here are four steps that really work!
◆Use paper with lines
Using paper with lines can keep you writing straight instead of up or down when you write
English words or sentences. Those lines on the paper can help you to write words in the r__2__ size. Be sure to fill the lined space completely. And make sure those capital letters (大写字母) are written properly.
If your writing is hard to read, try slowing down a little. For some kids, going slower makes the handwriting clear. If you write too fast, it’s hard for you to stop where you should, and even w__3__, you may make more mistakes.
◆Hold your pencil right
When you hold your pencil in a correct way, writing is much easier. Some kids press down really hard when they write. That makes the handwriting not nice. Try to be relaxed and don’t hold the pencil so hard. Let your writing appear nice and clean. If you do so, people will guess you are a student with a good h___4 _.
◆Draw more pictures
Drawing can improve your handwriting. You need to use the skills to c__ 5__ your pencil better when you are drawing pictures. Even though you have no chance to draw at school, you can practice by y__6___ at home.
Handwriting is very important. Imagine you are a world-famous movie star or a well-known sports player, what do you do when your f__7__ run up to you? Give them your autographs(亲笔签名), of course.
You have probably never heard of Amy Winterbourne, but she is a most u 1 woman. She lives in a house that she built herself out o 2 trash. Well, the stuff used to be called trash, but now it’s called “recycled” material. The windows and doors came from old buildings around the town that were being pulled down. The walls are made from old glass bottles that are g 3 together. The roof is made from d 4 tiles. And the fence is built out of used soda cans. Amy recently won an a 5 from the Help Save Our Planet Society. The president Jackson Smith said, “Amy is an i 6 to us all.”
I’m sure you all know how important recycling is. Recycling is when you collect old things and turn them into new things. It sounds like magic. B 1 in fact it’s very scientific.
How it all works? The first thing is to collect items that can be recycled. Soda cans are made out of metal. Some bottles of juice are made out of g 2 . Magazines and newspapers are made out of paper. Bags are made out of plastic. Many o 3 old things can be recycled，too.
Let’s get back to the process（过程）of recycling. Once you put all your items in a recycling factory. There，the materials get separated. They go into d 4 piles. There are special machines that crush（挤压变形）each pile together. The materials c 5 into square cubes（立方体）. They are really heavy. It is h 6 for humans to carry them. Companies buy these cubes and turn them into n 7 products.
Now let’s take a closer look at how old paper is transformed（改变形态）. First the paper is torn（撕）into tiny p 8 . Then a special water with chemicals is poured onto them. The fibers start to stick together. In time，a completely new roll of paper is c 9 ! If there were things written or printed on the first paper，they disappear.
Recycling keeps our planet healthy. It reduces waste and saves money. It a 10 saves energy. You can do your part. So just remember the golden rule：always recycle your products!

Last year, four children waited for their school bus every day for ten minutes, on the same dirty street corner. Old bottles, parts of old bikes, and empty soda cans (苏打罐) could be
1. s everywhere around the bus stop. The trees were brown and had no leaves, and there weren’t any flowers at all.
One Friday, one of the children looked at the corner and

A poor farmer had a friend who was famous for the wonderful apple tree he grew．

The friend a 9 ．“If you planted the tree in the sunlight, at least someone could e 10 the fruit．Now you not only have robbed everyone of the fruit，but also you have destroyed a good apple tree”
Three rich ladies met every day by the river. They sat there and talked the w 1 day. Once, they quarrelled. One of them said, "Look, how white and beautiful my hands are!" A 2 one said, "My hands are more beautiful." The third one said. " Mine a 3 the most beautiful." Just then, an old woman beggar（乞丐） came up to them. "Beautiful ladies," she said, "I'm old and can't work. I'm hungry. Please give me something to eat."
But the t 4 ladies gave her nothing. They only asked her to tell them who h 5 the most beautiful hands.
A peasant woman (农妇) was also sitting by the river. She was poor and her hands were rough（粗糙） because of h 6 work. The old woman beggar came up to her and said, "I'm hungry. Please give me something to eat." The peasant woman took out her only cake she had and gave the beggar a h 7 .
The old woman beggar ate it and drank some water. Then she took the peasant woman by the hand, brought her b 8 the rich ladies and said, "Now, I shall tell you whose hands are the most beautiful. The hands of the poor peasant woman are rough because of work, but they give us food; they are m 9 more beautiful than your hands which have never d 10 anything."
Have you heard of sumo(相扑)？It’s a sport s 1 to wrestling(摔跤). In fact, robots do sumo too.
Three students from Jinan Experimental Middle School won the sumo competition d 2 the 16th Robofest World Championship in 2016. Robofest is an international competition that challenges students to design, build and program robots. In 2016, it was h 3 at Lawrence Technological University in the USA.
Two robots fight each other on a table for the match. A bottle is in the c 4 of the table. If a robot pushes the other robot or the bottle off the table and r 5 on the table for three seconds, it will win.
The Chinese team won two rounds. What were the secrets that helped them win? First, they made their robot p 6 . Their robot looked like a large forklift(铲车). Also, they used a high-powered motor. The motor made their robot stronger when it f 7 with each other. At the same time, their robot was very c 8 . The team designed some program to help their robot deal with different problems.
In one round, their robot was pushed to the end of the table and a 9 fell off. But suddenly, it stopped and moved the other way i 10 . Their robot had a special program . As soon as it discovered the table’s end, it would move back and present itself from falling off. Really amazing, right？
What can you do to keep healthy? Perhaps for children, healthy eating is one of the most important things. Here are some ideas about h 1 to eat healthily.
A good breakfast is very important to children. It's n 2 to have it in the morning. But some children often go to school without breakfast, just because they want to sleep a little l 3 . Remember that a good breakfast will help you study better.
"My dream is that all the Chinese children can get half a kilogram of milk a day." The Chinese Premier(总理) Wen Jiabao said this during his v 4 to a milk farm. Milk is also very important to children's health. It makes children grow stronger. It's better for you to drink a glass of warm milk b 5 going to bed. That will help you have a good s 6 .
Having healthy food is the most important. That means eating lots of different kinds of food, e 7 fruits and vegetables. Don't eat too much chocolate o 8 ice-cream. Some of you p 9 to eat fast food, but in fact it is not good for your health. Try to eat healthy food as much as possible. Have healthy eating h 10 , and you will have a strong body.
Some western countries insist that China is one of the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitters （温室气体排放者）. But in fact our government has taken actions a1
to struggle with climate change.
Firstly, the public are educated to p2 more attention to the environment. As the government expects, the people have reached a very h3 level of knowing low-carbon economy（低碳经济）. I 4 you watch TV, listen to the radio or read newspapers, you’ll find low-carbon lifestyle has become a fashion. Secondly, developing renewable energy is another action. The government is b 5 many wind farms and solar power stations in the deserts. Of course, w 6 a long time, China will continue using the coal. At the same time, the government has been making l 7 to punish those people who dare to destroy the environment. Besides, some s 8 have suggested that greening the deserts is more important than developing new forms of energy. Their l 9 research shows that 80% of the CO2 in the atmosphere comes from land?use.
As we know, China hasn’t a 10 a balance between the green lifestyle and the economic growth, but we are on the way. We’ll take more actions to reduce the greenhouse gas emission.

Good health is the most valuable thing a person can have. It is important to remember that the body needs proper c 1 in order to be healthy. There are three things that a person can do to help stay in good shape: eat right food, get enough sleep, and exercise regularly.
Proper nutrition (营养) is important for good health. Your body cannot work well if it doesn't receive the proper kind of "fuel". Don't eat too much food with lots of sugar and fat. Eat plenty of foods which are h 2 in protein(蛋白质), like meat, fish, eggs and nuts. Vegetables and fruits are very important because they p 3 necessary vitamins and minerals (矿物质) . However, don't eat too much. It is not helpful to be overweight.
Getting the proper amount of sleep is also important. If you don't get enough sleep, you will feel tired and get angry e 4 . You will have no energy. So, be sure to have seven to nine h 5 of sleep each night. It you do, your body will feel strong.
F 6 get plenty of exercise. Exercise makes the body strong and prevents you from putting on weight. It also improves your heart and lungs. If you follow a regular exercise program, you will probably i 7 your life-span (寿命) 1 Doing exercises is not only good for your body, but it is fun and enjoyable, too.
If you eat the right foods, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly, you will all live to be much older and wiser.

A 2 one said, "My hands are more beautiful." The third one said. " Mine a 3 the most beautiful." Just then, an old woman beggar came up to them. "Beautiful ladies," she said, "I'm old and can't work. I'm hungry. Please give me something to eat."
But the t 4 ladies gave her nothing. They only asked her to tell them who h 5 the most beautiful hands.
A peasant woman (农妇) was also sitting by the river. She was poor and her hands were rough because of h 6 work. The old woman beggar came up to her and said, "I'm hungry. Please give me something to eat." The peasant woman took out her only cake she had and gave the beggar a h7 .
The old woman beggar ate it and drank some water. Then she took the peasant woman by the hand, brought her b 8 the rich ladies and said, "Now, I shall tell you whose hands are the most beautiful. The hands of the poor peasant woman are rough because of work, but they give us food; they are f 9 more beautiful than your hands which have never d 10 anything."
The whole school was talking about the winter camp. And everyone was looking forward to it 1. e me because I thought I would get homesick.
When arriving at the camp, we were 2. a to ski down to field by the coach. I skied carefully, but I still hit a piece of ice and fell down.
“Ha! Ha!” Behind 3. m , somebody started laughing. I looked back to see who was 4. l at me. To my 5. s , I saw a girl in the same embarrassing position that I was in. “I thought I’d be bad at this, but it 6. s more difficult than I expected!” she said. Suddenly, I started laughing, too. After being so 7. a of falling, it was a comfort that made me not fear it anymore.
The next day, 8. t I didn’t want to go ski jumping, I was chosen to do that first. But when my 9. f left the ground, I felt I was flying and it was wonderful.
Just do your 10. b to meet every challenge. You’ll never imagine how much you will get.
Many books have been written about “the art of giving”. But what about the art of
r 1 ? Sometimes, receiving a gift can be difficult, especially when someone buys you a gift you don’t want!
“I remember when I was about twelve years old, my parents b 2 me a purple purse,” laughs Guo Xiaojing. “It really made me feel embarrassed(尴尬), because I thought the purse was really ugly！Still, I pretended (假装)that I liked it b 3 I knew it would make my parents happy!”
Han Ling agrees. “That sounds like my grandparents！A few years ago, my grandparents gave me an orange sweater f 4 my birthday. I used to wear it every time I visited them, but when I left their house, I took it off! Of course, this made me feel g 5 . It was a very nice thought, but my grandparents have different taste from me! I think it’s hard to buy clothes or other personal things for people.”
To make things easier, some people would rather just give money. In some cultures, h 6 , receiving money can make people uncomfortable. “When someone gives me money, it j 7 makes me think they’re being lazy,” says John Wilson. “In England, we have a saying: It’s the thought that counts. When s 8 gives me money, I feel they don’t think at all. I prefer to receive a gift that has some thought behind it. I don’t mind if it’s something I don’t need. If someone has thought about a g 9 for me, it always makes me happy.”
Different people have very different thoughts on this subject! So maybe the art of receiving is e 10 more difficult than the art of giving! What do you think?
