Lesson 6---Communicate with Sign
No matter where we were, we looked at the sign, and then we can understand the sign means.
With the image and color, we can know the sign what the means are at first.
There were traffic signs, and the sign where showed up in the department store, the often were used in our life.
International signs meant that didn’t need words or language to know what the sign means.
We can communicate with sings from country to country by international signs.
Don’t need to speak language to understand signs, that is, international signs.
If you want to the bathroom, you won’t ask someone for help, you just looked signs and also found out where the bathroom was.
There were kinds of signs in our life becoming convenient.

Lina, please see the revision and compare this with yours.

No matter where we are, we can see signs. When we see signs, probably we can understand the meanings of the signs. That is because, with the image and color, we can know what the sign means first.
There are different kinds of signs in our life, such as traffic signs on the street and direction signs in the department store. There is also one kind of sign—it is international signs. International signs have no words or no language, but we still know what the signs mean. We can communicate with sings from country to country by international signs.
We don’t need to speak any language to understand signs. For example, if you want to go to the restroom, you won’t ask someone for help. You just looked for the sign and find out where the restroom is.
Signs make our life become convenient.

(Lesson 9)
If you had a account, it would credit each morning with $86,400. However, it will not carry over from day to day. What will you do? Can you draw out all of the money? Of course, you can’t. Why can’t I draw out all of the money? That is because it is TIME.
Everyone have 24 hours each day, so we have to good purpose. Time is not come back. Therefore, we should hold the time. Time waits for no one. It is going fast, if you don’t catch it.
As a student, we should study hard every moment and enjoy our time. Angry is a day, happy is a day. Yesterday has passed. We should hold the time and expect tomorrow.

Lesson 9 The Value of One Day.
The author is talking about we have 86400 seconds in every day and use metaphor. If there is a bank, we have 86400 in it. We can not put it to good use and we will lose the time. It say if it s a bank, we can not carry over balance from day to day. Each second is very important to us. For example, the author says the value of one second can save the person who just avoids an accident. If we can use this time, we can do more and more thing.
The time in our life is important to us. If we can use time to good use and we will not lose everything. You likely heard people say,” Time is money or Time fly.” This saying is true. If we do not make the most of our time and we will lose. We must treasure any time. Time does not wait for anyone.

Hello friends! Today I want to introduce lesson9 “the value of one day”. First, the author compares time to the bank. Everyday bank credits $86,400 in your account, and every night it writes off. Thus, you have to finish using it. Every moment there is probably a person who avoids an accident. No matter if it is one year, one day, one hour, one minute, one second or one millisecond; you have to realize the value of time. Under a good use of time, how would you spend your 86400 seconds? There is no drawing against the “tomorrow”. There is no going back. Time does not wait for you. Therefore, treasure every moment that you have! Make the most of today.

Kacey was a man who lost both his legs in an accident. He didn’t give up his dream — playing basketball on the team. Although he had no legs, he still could do many things as well as others people. He made his dream come true. He wasn’t the best player on the team, but he practiced very hard. He also could play the baseball well.

The author gave us some examples of physically challenged people. They weren’t healthy, but they were active. They didn’t let their problems stop them from doing anything that they wanted to do.

Where there is a will, there is a way. We can’t afraid of anything and do things without perseverance. When you are having trouble next time, just say‘you can!’With strong perseverance and wills, you will achieve what you expect to do.

We can’t promise you that life in senior high will be wonderful, but we hope you have a good start in your high school life.

Hello everyone! Today I want to introduce lesson 2 “Celebrating a New Baby”. Do you remember what did your parents do when you were born? You might forget but maybe they had photos. In most cultures, people celebrate new baby with some type of ceremony. For instance, people in the United States celebrate new baby with decorating their door. If the balloon on the door is blue means their baby is a boy. Pink ones are for girls. Sometimes they put the news of their baby in the newspaper. In Korea, they have a ceremony when baby was born 100 days. In Mexico, many new parents take their baby to church.
New babies have one thing in common. They all need names but it decide on different ways. The baby maybe has the same name as his father. Or named by someone. The new parents will receive many presents when they have a new baby. But they really need sleep.

Hello everyone~!!
Today I want to introduce lesson ten “Little Penguins” in our textbook. It was talking about the Little Penguin’s life. The Little Penguins’ father and mother are very tired to feed their babies; they should go fishing all day long and no more time to relax. Little Penguins only thirty-three centimeters tall, weigh only one kilogram. Little penguins are the smallest penguins in the world. There are lots of Little Penguins in Phillip Island; it is very interesting to me. They have to swim up to twenty kilometers to catch the fish; they sometimes jump in and out of the water like dolphins. Little Penguins have become one of the most-loved animals in Australia! Little Penguins are so cute!! If I can travel to Phillip Island, I must see Little Penguins out of the water in evening.

Lesson6 Communicating with Signs

This lesson let me know a lot of things. Some signs have simple lines. People can’t understand something without signs. Signs are important for everybody to understand something. A lot of signs are very common. We can see them everywhere. International signs have become increasingly important around the world as more and more people are traveling from country to country. No language is necessary to know what these symbols mean. Someone from many countries. They are speaking many languages and have different culture. International signs are certainly a great help to travelers.

Lesson4
Kecey McCallister is eleven years old. He dreamed of playing basketball. He practiced very hard. Now he achieves his dream which is on the Boys’ Club team. He can dribble and pass as well as the others kids, but he moves the court and shooting a basket is difficult for him, because he has no legs. Why doesn’t Kecey have legs? When he was six, he lost both legs in an accident. But he never gives up his loves-sports.
Many physically challenged people hard work. They make their dream come true. Sharon Hedrick won the women’s wheelchair 800-meter race in the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Diana Golden raced against able-bodied skiers on one leg, she came in 10th. Everyone can learn many things from physically challenged.

Hello everyone, I’m J.D. Today, I'd love to introduce the Lesson 9--The Value of One Day. The author of this article wants us to imagine that there is a bank which credits your account with time. And the balance never carries over from day to day. So, if you don't put time to good use, you will consume time just doing something not important. You have to invest time to good purpose and make the most of today, because it writes about that there is no going back with time. Besides above-mentioned things, the writing tells us some interesting sentences. For example, if you'd like to know the value of one year, you may ask a student who failed a grade or if you want to understand the value of one month, you can ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby. Eventually, treasure every moment you have. "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift--that's why it's called the present"!

Lesson 2- Celebrating a New Baby
Many people mark important things by have a ceremony. Maybe when you are a baby, you have some photos, too.
In the US, they will be exciting when they have a new baby. They always decorate their front door. When the baby is a girl, they put pink balloons. When the baby is a boy, they put blue ones.
People celebrate a new baby by some ceremony. In Korea, in Mexico, in some African, they all have own traditional to celebrate a new baby. Babies all need one name. Some babies have a name by their parents. Some of them decide name by family traditions. Some babies will get names at religious ceremonies. The parents have new baby always receive presents from their friends. The presents are great, but they have s little baby. What do they really need? "Sleep" I think so.

Lesson 7 “Science in the Kitchen”
Science is all around us. If we look something closely and maybe you can see the science that makes it work. There are two examples. One is “Heat Air Expands” Sometimes when you boil an egg and it causes the egg shell to crack. Then you can use a pin to make a small hole into the bottom of the egg that give air a way to escape. So in that way, your egg won’t be crack.
The other is you can put the onion in the refrigerator before you cut it. Because onion carries a kind of compounds will make you shed tears. And in the case of the onion, you can prevent yourself from shedding too much tears
You can tell your mom or maybe your cook and they will love you more.

Lesson 2--Celebrating a New Baby

It’s a pleasant thing for a family to have a new baby. The proud parents usually celebrate it in different ways in different countries. In the United States, if the new parents want to share the happiness to their neighbors; they will decorate their front door with balloons. Pink balloons or blue ones mean the baby is a girl or a boy. In Mexico, the new parents put some special clothes on their babies and take them to church.
All the babies need names. Their names may be chosen by their parents before they are born; some of them may depend on family traditional. Some of the new parents even put the news about their babies in the newspaper.
Did your parents celebrate for your birth when you were born? Go and ask them!

Kacey was a man who lost both his legs in an accident. He didn’t give up his dream — playing basketball on the team. Although he had no legs, he still could do many things as well as others people. He made his dream come true. He wasn’t the best player on the team, but he practiced very hard. He also could play the baseball well.

The author gave us some examples of physically challenged people. They weren’t healthy, but they were active. They didn’t let their problems stop them from doing anything that they wanted to do.

Where there is a will, there is a way. We can’t be afraid of anything and do things without perseverance. When you are having trouble next time, just say ‘you can!’ With strong perseverance and wills, you will achieve what you expect to do.

Super good!

Hello everyone! Today I want to introduce lesson 2 “Celebrating a New Baby”. Do you remember what your parents did when you were born. You might forget but maybe they had photos. In most cultures, people celebrate new baby with some type of ceremony. For instance, people in the United States celebrate new baby with decorating their door. If the balloon on the door is blue, it means their baby is a boy. Pink ones are for girls. Sometimes they put the news of their baby in the newspaper. In Korea, they have a ceremony when baby was born 100 days. In Mexico, many new parents take their baby to church.
New babies have one thing in common. They all need names but it decide on different ways. The baby maybe has the same name as his father, or they may be named by someone. The new parents will receive many presents when they have a new baby. No matter what they need, most importantly, they really need sleep.

Lesson4-I Can
Kacey McCallister wanted to play basketball but he lost his leg in a traffic accident when he was six-year-old boy. But he didn’t give up. He played many sports. For example he can play baseball and basketball very well. He didn’t let the accident stop him from making his dreams come true.
Besides pointing out Kacey McCallister, the author also points out other successful examples such as Sharon Hedrick who raced the Marathon in a wheelchair and competed Olympics and Diana Golden who raced able-bodied skiers.
Nothing can possibly prevent us to realize the dream. Just try our best and believe we can.

Lesson6 Communicating with Signs

People can’t understand something without signs. Signs are important for everybody to understand something. A lot of signs are very common. We can see them everywhere. International signs have become increasingly important around the world as more and more people are traveling from country to country. No language is necessary to know what these symbols mean. Someone from many countries will depend on them. They are speaking many languages and have different culture, so international signs are certainly a great help to them.

Lesson4
Kecey McCallister is eleven years old. He dreamed of playing basketball. He practiced very hard. Now he achieves his dream which is on the Boys’ Club team. He can dribble and pass as well as the others kids, but moving the court and shooting a basket is difficult for him, because he has no legs. Why doesn’t Kecey have legs? When he was six, he lost both legs in an accident. But he never gives up his love-sports.
Many physically challenged people work hard. They make their dream come true. For example, Sharon Hedrick won the women’s wheelchair 800-meter race in the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Diana Golden raced against able-bodied skiers on one leg, she came in 10th. They have something in common. It is “never give up your dreams.” So, everyone can learn many things from physically challenged.

Hello everyone, I’m J.D. Today, I'd love to introduce the Lesson 9--The Value of One Day. The author of this article wants us to imagine that there is a bank which credits your account with time. And the balance never carries over from day to day. So, if you don't put time to good use, you will consume time just and do something not important. You have to invest time to good purpose and make the most of today, because it writes off. There is no going back with time. Besides the things mentioned above, the writer tells us some interesting sentences. For example, if you'd like to know the value of one year, you may ask a student who failed a grade or if you want to understand the value of one month, you can ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby. Eventually, treasure every moment you have. "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift--that's why it's called the present"!

Lesson 2- Celebrating a New Baby
Many people mark important things by having a ceremony. Maybe when you are a baby, you have some photos to celebrate your coming, too.
In the US, they will be excited when they have a new baby. They always decorate their front door. When the baby is a girl, they put pink balloons. When the baby is a boy, they put blue ones.
People celebrate a new baby by some ceremonies. In Korea, in Mexico, in some African, they all have own traditional ways to celebrate a new baby. Babies all need one name. Some babies have a name by their parents. Some of them are decided by family traditions such as religious ceremonies. Parents who have new baby always receive presents from their friends. The presents are great, but they have a little baby. What do they really need? "Sleep," I think.

Lesson 7 “Science in the Kitchen”
Science is all around us. If we look something closely and maybe you can see the science that makes it work. There are two examples. One is “Heat Air Expands.” When you boil an egg and sometimes heat causes the egg shell to crack. Then you can use a pin to make a small hole into the bottom of the egg that give air a way to escape. In that way, your egg won’t be cracked.
The other is you can put onions in the refrigerator before you cut them, because onions carry a kind of compounds that will make you shed tears. And in the case of the onion, you can prevent yourself from shedding too much tears
You can tell science in the kitchen to your mom or maybe your cook and they will love you more.

Lesson 2--Celebrating a New Baby

It’s a pleasant thing for a family to have a new baby. The proud parents usually celebrate it in different ways in different countries. In the United States, if the new parents want to share the happiness to their neighbors; they will decorate their front door with balloons. Pink balloons or blue ones mean the baby is a girl or a boy. In Mexico, new parents put some special clothes on their babies and take them to church.
All the babies need names. Their names may be chosen by their parents before they are born; some of them may depend on family tradition. Some of the new parents even put the news about their babies in the newspaper.
Did your parents celebrate for your birth when you were born? Go and ask them!

It is a pleasant summery nightfall. The tourists are sitting on benches on a beach to see Little Penguins. Then, 700 Little Penguins walk out from the water. They have been in the water to catch fish for their babies all day and they are going home now.
The Little Penguins are the smallest among all kinds of penguins! They are only 33 centimeters tall and one-kilogram weight when they become adults. They have two babies on the summer every year. The penguins live in holes called burrows. The burrows were mad of grass, twigs, and leaves so as to make the nest comfortable for their children. They take turns sitting on eggs to keep them warm for five weeks and the babies will batch. They also take turns stay home or catch fish. They have some interesting behaviors. If two penguins are irate with each other, they will state at each other. When one is angry, but the other one is not, the penguin that is not angry will walk away with its head and body hold very low. If Little Penguins want to have lovers, they will imitate their lovers or clean lover’s feathers. No wonder they are more popular animals in Australia-they are so attractive!

Iris 提到...

The Little Penguin lives on Phillip Island. Many tourist sitting on the beach and see penguins stand up and walkout of the water. All of parent penguins, and they have been in the water all day catching fish to feed their baby. Little Penguin are the smallest penguin in the world. The penguin lives in hole in the ground called burrows.
They make their burrows comfortable and warm. Little penguins behave in other ways. When two penguins are angry each other, they will stare at each other. Aren’t their behavior cute?
