We grow up in change. Growth makes our life full of meaning. Looking back on the three years of junior high school, I have experienced many changes in my study, thoughts, personality, life and so on. The biggest personal change I’ve ever made is that I have fallen in love with reading.
When I was a child, I didn’t enjoy books at all. Later, my mother always read stories for me and bought me books. Gradually, I began to love reading. While reading, I feel like talking with a wise man. Reading is also a fantastic way to enjoy my free time.
Books are my friends. And they will benefit me a lot.
提示词：holiday, activities, colorful, meaningful, museum.
In the holiday, Xiao Li and her classmates took part in many activities. Xiao Li joined the art club, and she practiced handwriting carefully. Some girls joined the cooking club, and they felt very excited about it. They didn’t do that in the past. Their parents thought it was a waste of time. They only needed to study. But children were really fond of cooking. Some were in the sports club to do exercise, such as running and playing basketball. Others went to the history museum. There they learned a lot about the heroes in their hometown. They made great contributions to their hometown. Children admired them very much.
All the children fell in love with the holiday activities. They would leave sweet mmories during their lifetime. What colorful and meaningful activities they had!
提示词：at the clinic (诊所)；junk food；stomachache；medicine
Possible Version One:
One day, Li Hua had a stomachache. His father took him to a clinic right away.
At the clinic, a nurse asked what was wrong with Li Hua. He answered, “I had a stomachache, maybe I ate too much junk food last night.” Then, the nurse took him to see a doctor. The doctor examined him carefully. He told him to take some medicine and rest in bed.
One day later, Li Hua felt better. He realized that he would cat more vegetables and fruit, less junk food in the future.
Possible Version Two:
Li Hua is a boy who likes eating junk food very much. Last night, after dinner, he started eating again as usual. A few hours later, a strong feeling of stomachache struck him and his face turned pale at once. His father took him to the nearest clinic. Soon a nurse came and asked what happened. The doctor gave him some medicine and told him to stay in bed. He didn’t feel better until he took the pills.
Junk food is delicious, but it is not so healthy. We should eat regularly and do sports often. The better living habits are, the healthier we’ll be.
How is everything going?
How is everything going? I’m glad to tell you my one-day experience in rice fields.
On June 18, my classmates and I went to the community farm. When we arrived, we visited the farm and watched videos on farming. Then we worked together with farmers. Some learnt to harvest rice. Some helped to carry rice while others picked ears of rice from the fields. Through the activity, I’ve got the pleasure of hard work and learnt to value each grain.
Have you had any experience of this kind?

Me and my after-class course
In my school, there are many kinds of after-class courses. I choose the course of DIY. DIY literally means making things by hand.
My first assignment was to use the colored bubble mud commonly used by primary school students now, paste a colored blessing on the small board, and then make a frame with colored wool. Because I think everyone has a different understanding of happiness. I made a word Fu into color. It’s quite a test of a person’s patience to do some simple handicrafts, such as cross stitch, folding thousand paper crane...
Through this study, I learned that we can make handmade in many ways. Waste beverage bottles, wool, ice cream sticks and so on can become raw materials for handmade. We can create our own satisfactory works through our own imagination.

A suitable way for me
I am a student, who pretty like reading. I like to read different kinds of books, such as humorous, scientific, literary and so on. As the old saying goes, books are the ever-burning lamps of accumulated wisdom. I think reading is useful for me. First of all, I can get a lot of knowledge from reading. Some of them can not be learnt from school. Meanwhile, reading helps me broaden my minds and relax my body. Last but not least, reading keeps me in a good condition. It teaches me to be lenient to everything. Meantime, I can think our world and our lives. So, I think readig helps me a lot.
