A few years ago, I was eating dinner with my children before we went to a museum. We were
talking 56 (愉快地) when a man walked up to me and asked if I had a 57 dollars to give him. I replied that I didn’t even have one coin on me. Of course, my kids stood up and said: “Yes, you do, mommy.” I was a little embarrassed because I felt as if they 58 (抓住)me not telling the truth. Normally, I don' t carry lots of money in my 59 . instead, I pay with my bank card every where I go.

___61 (表情) quickly changed into a smile. Then I went to get him some kinds of food. He thanked me when I h 62 him a bag of food. After he left. I had a talk 63 my children: "Usually, I don't always like giving money to everyone who asks for it. H 64 ,I am not against meeting the needs of others as I 65 as I have it. "I felt good knowing that the man had a nice meal that evening.
Is there an important exam right around the comer? You might be starting to fear, thinking that there' s no way for you to get a good grade because of the little time left to study. This is something all students may worry about. But you should accept the fact that you have to take the

I'm not much of a crier most of the time. But recently when I was reading a book on a plane, I started crying. Of course, it came as a big surprise when tears came up, no matter how hard I tried, I wasn’t able to control myself.
Oh no, not this now. I thought to myself. But even as the thought entered my brain. I felt the first hot drop of salty water coming down my face. I put my head down, hoping that I could go on reading.
In fact, the harder I tried, the more tears pushed their way out of my eyes. You could guess how surprised the man next to me looked.
I dropped my head in shame. He must think I was crazy. May be I could turn toward him, hold up the cover of the book and say in my crying voice. "I'm sorry, sir. It's just a really good book! "But I didn't say anything. Instead, I just put my head back against the seat and let the tears run. Do you know what decision I made while I was crying? My decision was that it was okay if he thought I was crazy. I'd rather be crazy than be the kind of person who wouldn't cry when the situation called for it, or who wouldn't let herself feel anything at all.
I’ve been that girl who has spent so much time trying to make sure people didn’t think I was crazy. But now I don’t want to be that girl any more ---that bored and sad girl. I'd rather be this girl who is able to forgive(原谅), love and act, even if it means being disappointed or being hurt again and again.

B. he may have trouble with some classmates.
C. there was little communication outside the meeting.
D. information exchange can solve simple misunderstandings.

It used to be that parents and teachers had set days and times for parent-teacher meetings, but ( 76 ). With the help of QQ, Wechat, school website and so on, parents and teachers can communicate with each other more easily and often. But some parents still don’t want to connect
with their child’s teachers. That's not right! Because( 77 ).
Be sure to call your child's teacher if( 78 ). When a child who used to love going to school, but now cries and fights getting on the bus, ( 79 ) Your child’s teacher can pay more attention to something bigger happening.
For example, you may find the teacher's notes on the test paper. They are often helpful for parents to understand what your child’s problem is. If they are unclear to you.. ( 80 ).

Possible version 1
I am Li Hua from Class 3, Grade 8. Here is my advice about our study travel.
I suggest going to Wufeng Houhe Forest Park. It is a beautiful park with green water and
mountains. There are many different kinds of plants, birds and other animals. We can get closer to the nature. I think June is the best time to get there. Because there is not too much rain at this time of year and the weather in the forest park is much cooler.
We will have lots of activities, such as climbing the mountains and studying about plants. I'm sure the travel will be both pleasant and educational
We can discuss the details(细节) later.
Possible version 2
I am Li Hua from Class 3, Grade 8. I advise we go to Beijing for the study travel. Beijing is
well worth visiting. It's not only a big modern city but also the capital with a long history. The trip will help us learn more about our traditional culture.
The best time for the travel is Autumn. It's the best season to travel in Beijing.
We can visit the Palace Museum and walk around the Beijing hutong. We can also climb the Great Wall. I'm sure we can have a happy and educational trip.
We can discuss the details(细节) later.
