Rain makes the grass green and it makes your garden grow. There are always
which is why it is often humid in the summer.
Warm air rises, and with it rise the water droplets. These tiny drops rise if cold
air blows in. Mountains can also make them rise, which is why it rains a lot there.
When the air holds lots of water droplets, clouds form. If a lot of water droplets
gather in the clouds, the clouds become heavy.
Danger of the water droplets to fall as rain.
It was an afternoon in the middle of July. I went to the beach. I liked my
friends, but sometimes I want to have some personal time to think. I got out of my
car and walked. The beach was always so admirable that it brought peace to my
heart. I enjoyed the wonderful smell of the ocean. The smell was so strong. The
sunset was beautiful. The wind made my hair fly around. I guess it’s my lucky day,
the beach was quiet. It was quieter than the park at night.
I walked to the middle of the beach and sat down on the sand. Once again the
feeling of peace struck me again. The beach was so calm. This was rare because it was
always crowded. I closed my eyes and tried to remember every detail I saw that day.

Jerry: Hi Fei, how's the new job going?

to the park and fly a kite!
Jerry: Are you kidding?
Fei: No. Look, I have this kite my uncle gave me.
Jerry: Hey, it's a butterfly. It must look really cool flying high in the sky!
Fei: So, are you up for it?
Jerry: Okay... But where can we fly a kite in such a big city?
Fei: We can go down the street.

Write down numbers on the board as follows:
1, 10, 11, 6, 17, 80
2, 20, 12, 7, 18, 90
3, 30, 13, 8, 19, 100
4, 40, 14, 9, 60,
5, 50, 15, 16, 70
With the numbers on the board go through the pronunciation of the numbers
with the class. Make sure they understand the difference between confusing numbers
like SIXTEEN & SIXTY. In other words emphasize numbers that might sound
confusing. After this, make two teams and explain that the teacher will say a number
out loud and they will have to race to the board and find the number and cross it out
with the marker or chalk. The student who gets it right scores a point for his/her team.
Take turns doing this until all students or most get a chance.
Sources of light
Different natural and other sources of light includes Sun, candles, bulbs, lamps
What sources of light do you use every day? The sun is the biggest source of
light. It warms the world so plants grow and animals can live. It allows you to work
and play. Without the light of the sun, all life on earth would die. We also have
electric light bulbs that bring us light. How about candles and flashlights?
These light sources all need energy – from electricity, wax or batteries – to
Day and night
At the same time we rotate around the sun, our planet is also spinning on its
own axis. The axis is an imaginary line through the center of Earth. Earth makes one
full spin on its axis every twenty-four hours, moving us from day to night and back
into day. Light from the Sun shines on Earth as it spines, but it only lights up half of
our planet at one time. Most people get about twelve hours of light and twelve hours
of darkness every day. This gives us time to go to school or work and to play, and it
is also gives our bodies time to rest and sleep.

should I go back?" said the other goat. "Better you must go back." “You must go
back", said the first goat, "because I am stronger than you." "You are not stronger
than I", said the second goat. "We will see about that", said the first goat and he put

“If we fight, we shall both fall into the river. I shall lie down and you may walk
Then the wise one laid down on the bridge and the other goat walked highly
over him. So they crossed the bridge comfortably and went on their ways.
