Growing up, I wanted to be just like my mom. She was kind. People always seemed
to feel comfortable in her presence. For years, she was a volunteer in our
community. I loved going to the local nursing home with her where she taught a
On one summer day, Mama told me to get changed and meet her at the car.
I had planned to spend the day at the lake with friends. Why did she have to
ruin everything? I imagined the cool lake water. Irritated，I climbed into the
car and slammed the door shut. We sat in silence. I was too upset to make
“Tasha, would you like to know where we are going?” Mama asked calmly.
“No,” I said.
“We are going to volunteer at a children’s shelter today. I have been there
before and I think it would benefit you,” she explained.
When we reached the shelter, Mama rang the doorbell. Moments later, we were
greeted by a woman. She led us to the front room where all of the children were
playing. I noticed a baby whose body was scarred with iron marks. I was told it
was because she wouldn’t stop crying. The majority of the children had
noticeable physical scars. Others hid their emotional wounds.
As I took in my surroundings, I felt a gentle pull on my shirt. I looked down to
see a little girl looking up at me. “Hi. You want to play dolls with me?” she
asked. I looked over at Mama forreinforcement. She smiled and nodded. I turned
back and said, “Sure.” Her tiny hand reached up and held mine, as if to comfort
My mom taught me a valuable lesson that summer. I returned to the shelter with
her several times. During those visits, some of the children shared their
troubled pasts with me and I learned to be grateful for what I had. Today as I
try to instill (逐渐灌输) these values in my own child, I reflect back to that
experience. It was a time that I will never forget.

Children who spend more time reading with their parents have a greater chance of
becoming better readers than those who don’t. With the help from their parents,
children can learn techniques to improve their reading skills.
“A lot of parents think after their child learns to read, they should stop
reading to them,” Donna George said. “They are sadly mistaken.”
George offers her services to parents at the Title I Learning Centers. She said
reading aloud to children may be the most valuable thing parents can do. “It is
better for children to hear things at a higher level than where they are,”
George said. “Parents are their child’s first teacher.” Parents help their
children build listening, phonics, comprehension and vocabulary skills when they
read aloud to them.
Before parents can identify reading problems, they should escape the enemy
—television and limit the time their children spend watching television. George
suggested not allowing kids to have a TV in their bedrooms, setting a schedule
of when kids can watch or keeping a list of how many programs children watch.
Louise Joines said while her 14-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son enjoy
reading, the television sometimes becomes adistraction. So she tries to build
the situation by suggesting books the entire family will enjoy reading together,
like the Harry Potter series.
Parents who do not read themselves should not count on their children being
interested in it. If parents would read to their children at least 15 minutes
every day, children would not have so many problems in school. It is the
parents’ job to help build that desire in their children, and of course to know
what kind of books to read is also important.
8. According to George, reading aloud to children_______________.
A．helps them correct mistakes
B．is helpful to their reading
C．is parents’ first duty to their children
D．can get children out of television’s attraction
The underlined word “distraction”(in Paragraph 4) means something
A．can improve children’s reading
B．can help children’s right way of reading
C．can make children interested in reading
D．stop children from concentrating on reading
10. Which of the following is important according to the fourth paragraph?
11. If the passage is not completed, which of the following can follow the
A．Parents choose reading materials for their children.
B．Advice is given to control their children.
C．What TV programs children can watch during reading.
D．How children improve their reading by themselves.
Most heroes are not super. They don’t appear in comic books, on television, or
in movies. They just do what they believe needs to be done to make their world a
better place. Bike Batman is one of them.
Bike Batman is a 30-year-old married engineer who lives in Seattle, Washington.
He’s a cyclist who also buys and sells bikes as a hobby.
About three years ago, he was looking for a bike for his wife. He found one on
Craigslist, a website where people list things they want to sell. As he often
does, he also looked at Bike Index, a popular website that allows users to
register their bikes and post reports when they’re taken. The bike, which he was
considering purchasing, clearly matched one reported stolen on Bike Index. Then
he called the person who claimed to be the bike’s owner and arranged to meet
him— supposedly to complete the sale. When the two men met, Bike Batman told the
thief, “You’ve got two options. You can wait until a police officer gets here,
or you can just get out of here.” You can imagine what the thief did.
After that first success, Bike Batman developed a safer routine. When he sees
questionable bike ads on Craigslist, he cross-references(对照) the image with
bikes reported on Bike Index. Once he has confirmed it with the owner, he
arranges a meet-up with the thief and will call the Seattle police department so
that officers can participate in the action. In more than half of the 22 cases
in which he has got back and returned bikes, the thieves have been arrested. In
one case, Bike Batman even helped a family recover a wide range of prized
possessions that suspects had stolen during a home burglary.
His nickname came from a discussion with a police officer who suggested he be
called “Robin Hood”. Since he wasn’t exactly stealing from the rich and giving
to the poor, “Batman” seemed a better fit. The idea of a superhero punishing
criminals feels pretty silly to him, but the main reason he continues his work
is to keep up Seattle’s reputation as a friendly city.
12. Bike Batman is _____.
A. a superhero B. a website manager
C. a Seattle citizen D. a police officer
13. When Bike Batman discovers a questionable bike, he will first _____.
A. contact the owner of the stolen bike
B. look up the bike’s information
C. call the police department
D. arrange to meet the thief
14. Bike Batman helps find the lost bikes to _____.
A. become famous B. help poor people
C. punish bike thieves D. build a friendly city
15. From the passage, we can learn that _____.
A. Bike Batman felt relieved to see the thieves arrested
B. Bike Batman began his good deeds by accident
C. the police failed to perform their duties
D. the thieves refused to return the bikes

Why is pink or purple a color for girls and blue or brown for boys?
The answer depends largely41cultural values as well as personal experiences. To
the Egyptians, green was a color42represented the hope and joy of spring, while
for Muslims, it means heaven. Red is a symbol of good luck in many cultures.
During the Spring Festival in China, children43(give) money in a red envelope to
bring good fortune in the New Year. For many nations, blue is a symbol of
protection and religious beliefs. Greek people often wear a blue necklace hoping
to protect44against evils（灾祸）.

toward them. Green is said to be46most restful color. It has the ability to
reduce pain and relax people both mentally47physically. People48(work) in green
environment have been found to have fewer stomach aches.

（食欲）. Many decorators will include different shades of red in the restaurant.
And many commercial websites will have a red “Buy Now” button because red is a
color that49(easy) catches a person’s eye.
Blue is another calming color. Unlike red, blue is believed to cause people to
lose appetite. So50 you want to eat less, some suggest that eating from blue
plates can help.
