One day, a mother horse told her son, “My child, will you 1 (happy) go and carry this bag of wheat to the mill(磨坊) to make it 2 flour?” The little horse agreed without hesitation and 3 (run) out of the house with the bag of wheat on his back.
After some time, the little horse came to a river, 4 blocked his path to the mill. He suddenly got 5 (confuse). Looking around, he saw a cow. So he asked, “Auntie Cow, can you tell me whether I can cross the river?” The cow answered, “Definitely you can. The water is very shallow.” When the little horse was about 6 (cross) the river, a squirrel shouted to him, “Don’t cross the river. You will drown.” Not 7 (know) what to do, the little horse decided to go back to ask his mother, who said, “My son, it’s not enough to only listen to others; you have to give it 8 try by yourself, and then you’ll know the answer.”
With those words, he walked carefully across the river. The water was neither shallow nor
9 (deeply). It was just fine for him. Finally the little horse crossed the river and completed his task. He also learned to overcome 10 (difficulty) by practicing instead of only listening to others.
Nowadays more and more Chinese teenagers find life more difficult w 1 their parents. They don’t know how to do housework. Because their parents do almost everything for them at home. This is a big p 2 .
Joy is 15 years old. One day, her parents went away on b 3 , so she had to stay at home a 4 . At first she thought she would be happy because her parents weren’t in. She could do a 5 that she liked. But it was six o’clock in the afternoon, she felt h 6 . “Oh, it’s time to have supper. Where can I get my food?” she said to h 7. Later she found some food in the fridge, but she didn’t know how to cook. At that moment, she m 8 her parents very much. F 9 she could only go to the supermarket and bought some food to eat.
Many of teenagers are the same as Joy. So I think they should learn some basic life s 10 , like cooking, tidying up their rooms or dressing themselves. They shouldn’t depend too much on their parents.
Travel can teach kids more than a textbook. Travelling with kids is good f 1 them. They can find new interests. Travel makes information alive for kids, and makes it much more exciting than studying textbooks or d 2 experiments in the lab. While traveling, they learn h 3 to deal with new situations, and communicate with other people. They learn patience, because sometimes i 4_ takes a long time to get to some exciting or interesting places.
I’ve been traveling since I was seven years old. For me, to stop traveling would be like taking something a 5 from my soul（灵魂）. I can’t live without traveling and I wouldn’t be who I am if I don’t travel. Some people think it’s h 6 to travel after having kids. But in my opinion, when people become parents, it doesn’t m 7 they couldn’t travel any more. My children have been traveling since they were three weeks old.
Bringing a new life into the world comes with many responsibilities（责任）and I’d love to be a good mother. One of my duties is to educate my children. I’m so t 8 that my parents took me on family trips when I was y 9 . I’ve learned that the outside world is more colorful than the little one I was living in. Of course, I want to pass these travel e 10 on to my children.
I value the memories I have traveling with my children. I’m sure they will always remember them in their lives.

On Easter, April 9th in 1939, more than 75,000 people came to the Lincoln Memorial（林肯纪念馆）in Washington, D.C. They heard the famous African-American singer Marian Anderson g 1 a free open-air concert.

Mo Yan, Song Zuying, Jiang Kun…these big names often 1 in newspapers that Wu Tianbao read. But this 12-year-old boy never thought he would talk to these famous people face to face. 2 , it happens.
From March 3 to 7, he interviewed these members and deputies(人大代表) during the two meetings held in Beijing. He was one of the 120 student reporters who got the chance to report on the yearly meetings. Xinhua News Agency chose these students from different places around the country. Just like professional reporters, they reported on the meetings by 3 .
Wu interviewed several members. But among them, he liked Mo Yan who won the Nobel Prize 4 , because Wu himself is very 5 in writing. When he saw Mo coming out of a meeting room, he rushed over quickly and asked for an interview. “He is kind and patient, just like my grandfather,” Wu said. He asked Mo about his thought for canceling(取消) zhongkao and making the school years shorter. “His answers were very nice. I feel like he pays a lot of 6 to education and teenagers,” Wu said.
The interview only lasted for a few minutes, but student reporters prepared a lot before. They learned how to come up with questions and write news stories. They often kept working 7 midnight.
But the student reporters enjoyed it. Zhao Sicheng, 12, from Zhejiang, is one of them. For him, 8 a reporter not only improved his communication skills, but he also learned a lot. “Almost every member’s answers were creative and helped solve some problems,” he said. “For example, I asked the runner Xu Dongxiang how she kept practicing running. She said, ‘Because I love it. Find something you love, and you will find it easy to stick to it.”
One afternoon, Anna found an interesting stone（石子）. She___1__it up and looked at it carefully. Then Anna ran into the room and showed it to her___2__.

“I had a collection of about 30 stones,” he said. “ I _5___a stone hound （迷） back then.” Anna’s father laughed.x k b 1 . c o m
“You were a what?” asked Anna.
“A stone hound. It is__6___person who collects stones,” said her father.
“It is interesting. I want to find out where stones come from and ___7__they are made,” said Anna.
“Stones are __8__by processes（过程）in the earth（地球）。Stones are results（结果） of high temperatures（温度）, __9___some are results of activities（活动）in the earth,” said her father .
“ I thing I will start my stone collection right now,” said Anna.”Would you like to come with __10__?”
“Of course!” said her father.
In a school some trouble was caused by the students, who were naughty（调皮的）and didn’t follow the school rules. They often fought with each other and they didn’t f 1 each other. One day a new teacher came to this school. When he heard that, he came up w 2 a good idea. He told each of his students to b 3 a clear plastic bag and a bag of potatoes to school. For every person they didn’t want to forgive in their lives, they chose a potato, wrote the person’s name on it, and put it in the plastic bag.
Some of their bags were very h 4 . They were then told to carry this bag with them e 5 for one week. They would put it beside their bed at night, on the seat when they s 6 in a car or on a bus, and next to their desk at school. Days of carrying the bags a 7 with them made students get to know what a weight they were carrying in their minds. And they had to pay so much attention to it all the time t 8 they didn’t forget it or leave it in embarrassing places. As time p 9 by, the potatoes went bad and made people feel sick.
Too often we think of tolerance（容忍）as a gift to other people, and it clearly is for ourselves! If we choose to keep our sadness and hatred (仇恨) in our hearts, we will have to carry them around all our lives. After that, the students got on w 10 with each other and didn’t fight any more. Learn to forgive, and you will be happier at the same time.
