Beauty in my mind
We all like beautiful things, but have different views about beauty. Some people think that they own beauty if they have good appearances. In my mind, a really beautiful person is the one with the qualities of kindness, honesty and strong will.
On a cold morning last winter, I saw a moving scene when I was buying breakfast in a breakfast shop. A girl bought a sandwich and a glass of hot milk in the breakfast shop. When she was about to leave, she found a beggar who looked so cold and hungry near the breakfast shop. To help the beggar, the girl went close to him and offered her food to him. The beggar accepted the food gratefully, and the girl went away with a beautiful smile on her face.At that moment, I saw the real beauty from the girl’s smile.
Let’s be a real beautiful person!
In my point of view,all of us should save…
In my point of view,all of us should save water. People can’t live without water. But the real situation is that the shortage of water is becoming a serious problem in many parts of the world due to growing population and the pollution of the rivers and lakes.
To deal with the water problem, we can do something to avoid wasting water in our life. Firstly, we should remember to reuse water. For example, the water left over after washing vegetables can be used to water plants or to clean the floor. Secondly, we had better limit our shower time. Also, we can call on more people to save water in different ways.
In short, water holds great value to human beings. Let’s do as much as we can to save water.

Giving is Receiving
I’m a student from Green Middle School. My name is Li Ming. I like helping others because I think it makes me very happy. I often help my classmates with their schoolwork. Sometimes I help clean up city parks. I go to the old people’s home and do some cleaning for them once a month. So I’m pretty popular there. I often visit the children’s hospital to cheer the sick kids up. I read stories and sing songs for them. I am good with children. I also give money to charities to help people in trouble.
I think giving is receiving. Helping others is helping ourselves. Do you agree with me?

How to keep a good relationship with parents
How to keep a good relationship with parents
In my opinion, I have too many rules at home. My parents never allow me to go out with my friends at night. They don’t allow me to choose my own clothes, either. And they pay too much attention to my exam results. I think my parents don’t quite understand me.
However, I try my best to understand them. Although they don’t allow me to make my own decisions and give me too much pressure, I know that it is because they really love me and want me to have a bright future.
In order to keep a good relationship with my parents, I study hard, listen to them, talk to them as friends, tell them my troubles, and help them do more housework.
Happiness is important in our life. In fact, happiness is always around you if you put your heart into it.
I will never forget one thing. Once, I had a bad mark at a math test. I was shy and afraid to meet my parents. But when I got back home late, my parents knew what happened, they said to me: “It doesn’t matter, my child. Remember we’ll be always beside you when you need help. We believe you can be better next time. Never give up!” I was moved and made up my mind to work harder and harder.
I feel happy. Whenever I am in trouble, I can feel my parents’ love. I want to be a good child for my parents.

The Hero in My Heart
As we know, most people have heroes in their hearts. For me，Liu Xiang is the hero in my heart. He is a famous Chinese sportsman.
Liu Xiang is good at running. In 2004，he won his first Olympic gold medal in the men’s 110m hurdles event in Athens. Then, he set a world record in the same event in Lausanne. Besides training and taking part in competitions, Liu Xiang also likes singing and he sings well.
With his hard work, he is winning competitions one after another. This encourages me to study harder from now on.

I am glad that you are interested in Chinese kung fu. Here I’ve got good news for you. The first kung fu festival of our school is going to be held from July 7 to 9, 2019. I’d like to invite you to the festival. You can watch many kung fu competitions and enjoy wonderful shows.
Chinese kung fu has a history of thousands of years. Practicing kung fu is a good way to improve our health. Besides, it helps us to develop strong wills. Most of us like it very much. I hope you will come and experience Chinese kung fu culture.
Looking forward to seeing you soon.
With the development of the activity of reading English classics,our school has had a discussion about whether it is necessary for middle schoolstudents to read English classics.
With the development of the activity of reading English classics, our school has had a discussion about whether it is necessary for middle school students to read English classics. I think reading English classics is not only necessary but also important. First, we can learn a lot about Western history and culture by reading. Second, by reading classics we can enlarge our vocabulary and improve our writing. Finally, it can help us with our lifelong learning. So I often spend my free time reading English classics.
I am in the Reading Club. And I often take notes while reading. What’s more, I sometimes ask the teacher for help if I have difficulty reading books.
If some students are weak in English, they can read the short and easy English stories at the very beginning. Well begun is half done. Next, they should keep reading and never give up. Then their English will be improved little by little.

How time flies! Three years of junior high school has gone by before we know it.
Each time I look back on my school days, I feel regretful, because one of my wishes hasn’t been realized. That is to learn how to play the guitar.
Although I am really interested in playing the instrument, I was busy working at my lessons. Besides, there was much homework to every day.
The end of junior high school is the beginning of new life. If I can enter the senior high school, I will take part in after-school activities to learn to play the guitar. I believe I’ll live a colorful life in the senior high school.
