    Humphrey and his wife Hildy had ten white sheep, eight black-faced sheep, and five long-legged lambs. Early every autumn, they would drive their sheep onto the ground beside the big, yellow barn(畜棚). Then Humphrey would hold each sheep still while Hildy cut off the wool.

    When they finished, there were twenty-three soft piles of wool on the floor, and twenty-three pink, skinny sheep jumping around happily as they were freed into the field. Humphrey and Hildy collected piles of wool and put them in the house.

    The next few weeks were very busy. They finally finished on a cold, fall evening. Twenty-three bright, woolly blankets lay in cheerful piles around the kitchen. They would sell the warm blankets when winter came. By the time the snow flew, the sheep's wool would have grown long enough to keep them nice and warm. Humphrey and Hildy both smiled, content with a job well done, and went to bed early.

    The alarm clock went off at 5:00 a. m. Humphrey and Hildy listened to the local weather report. "The earliest cold air in history," The announcer said, "has brought a freeze(霜冻) to our area! So put warm coverings, folks!" They stared at each other in horror.

    "The sheep!" shouted Humphrey. They hurried to put on their clothes and raced outside. What a freeze it was! The golden autumn grass fell to the ground, and the sheep without wool were shaking with cold painfully. Their pink skins had turned blue.

    "What will we do?" Hildy cried. "The barn can't hold so many sheep."

    Outside the messy kitchen, Hildy had a good idea, eyes falling on the blankets.

  • 6、阅读下面短文,从短文后的选项中选出可以填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。

    Let's face it: Nobody really likes doing chores (家务) around the house. But at a certain age, our kids are old enough to start lending a hand with the housework.  But what exactly are the benefits that young children and teenagers get from doing chores?

    Chores help teach life skills. They're young now, but they won't be kids forever! Washing clothes, cooking and cleaning the room are just some of the skills kids will need once they finally move out.  So it is really important to make kids learn them at home.

    Chores teach kids how to follow directions. Whether you are giving instructions to a small child or a teenager, describing what you are expecting them to do and then doing it will teach them how to follow directions.  Remember, only age-proper instructions can help them learn this important skill.

    Chores teach responsibility and respect. Having your children clean up their own messes will give them a sense of responsibility. Task them with assisting in making the family's meals.  These will help them understand all that their parents do to keep the home running smoothly and be more respectful of it.

     Everyone in our home has their own jobs to do in order to allow our house to function. It not only lessens our own stress level and to-do list, but it teaches our kids that we all must work together as a team. They may complain, but they've come to understand that the chores they are tasked with each day or week are all a bigger part of keeping the family functioning.

    A. Chores encourage teamwork.

    B. They can benefit from doing this.

    C. Or let them sort their own clothes.

    D. Speak to them at a level they'll understand.

    E. These are also things that schools do not fully teach.

    F. Encouraging kids to do chores will build their confidence.

    G. Chores help improve planning and time management skills.

    Jeffrey Hall, a teacher of Communications from the University of Kansas (KU), has used his research to define the exact amount of time necessary to make friends with someone. He's also found how long it will take to deepen a relationship. His new study found that it takes around 50 hours of time together to go from being someone's acquaintance to a casual friend. It takes about 90 hours to go from being a casual friend to a friend, and more than 200 hours before considering someone a close friend or best friend.

    But it isn't spending just any kind of time together that deepens a friendship—hours spent working together, for example, don't count as much as hours spent getting to know someone by hanging out, joking around, playing video games, and doing more playful activities. The study explains that these kinds of activities help us to form a deeper connection with someone. "We have to putthat timein," Hall said. "You can't make friends without any effort."

    The results of the study come from the analysis of 355 responses to an online survey from adults who said they had moved in the last six months and were looking for new friends in their new environment. Survey participants were asked about new relationships as well as hours spent together and activities they did. They were then asked to rate their resulting relationships according to one of four stages: acquaintances, casual friends, friends and close friends.

    The main conclusion that Hall came to is that making close friends takes serious effort. So if you want to have some best friends, you have to know that spending time with someone is the most important thing.

    (1)、How long does it take to turn an acquaintance into a friend?
    A、About 50 hours. B、About 90 hours. C、About 140 hours. D、About 200 hours.
    (2)、What does the underlined part "that time" in paragraph 2 refer to?
    A、Time spent working together. B、Time spent finding new friends. C、Time spent helping a new friend. D、Time spent doing fun things together.
    (3)、Which may help deepen a friendship according to the study?
    A、Trying to understand your friend's feelings. B、Enjoying quality time with your friend. C、Treating a new friend like a close one. D、Being generous to your friend.
    (4)、What is the main purpose of the text?
    A、To solve a relationship problem. B、To introduce a teacher from KU. C、To present the findings of a new study. D、To discuss the importance of friendship.

    Breakfast is food for the brain and for the rest of your body, say experts in children's nutrition. And taking in those morning calories are worth it, even for people concerned about their weight, a new study finds. Middle-school students who eat breakfast are more likely to have healthy weight than those who skip breakfast. This is true even for students who eat two breakfasts—one at home and one at school.

    "Not skipping breakfast sets you up to not overeat later in the day, " concludes Marlene Schwartz. This psychologist studies obesity(肥胖) and directs the Rudd Center for Obesity & Food Policy at the University of Connecticut in Hartford.

    Breakfast is considered so important that many schools now serve it as well as lunch. But at least one study has found that a lot of these kids who take part can end up eating two breakfasts, Schwartz says. People become concerned that kids who eat breakfast at home and at school may become obese.

    In fact, Schwartz now says, that's not what her data have turned up.

    Her group studied some 600 middle-school students. Over three years, students from 12 different schools—in fifth, sixth and seventh grades—were asked about their breakfasts. Throughout the study, about 34 to 44 percent of all students said they regularly ate breakfast at home. Up to 17 percent, or almost one in every six kids, regularly ate breakfast at school. On the whole, about one in every 10 kids ate breakfasts both at home and at school.

    Eating habits change somewhat as the kids get older. For instance, fifth graders were more likely to regularly eat breakfast at home. But by seventh grade, 22 percent of the studied kids skipped breakfast frequently. Surprisingly, at every age, kids who ate breakfast were less likely to be overweight.

    (1)、What can we infer from paragraph 1?
    A、Breakfast is more important to your brain. B、Eating two breakfasts is better than eating one. C、Eating breakfast might not cause kids to gain weight. D、People concerned about their weight should skip breakfast.
    (2)、What's the possible result of skipping breakfast according to the passage?
    A、Being more popular. B、Putting on weight. C、Becoming thinner. D、Being sick.
    (3)、What can we learn about Schwartz's study?
    A、It took her four years to finish her study. B、Eating habits remained the same as the kids got older. C、Three different grades' students took part in her study. D、The number of students who ate breakfast at home was smaller.
    (4)、What's the main idea of the passage?
    A、Breakfast is more important than lunch. B、Eating habits should change as the kids grow. C、Kids who eat breakfast are less likely to be overweight. D、It is important to develop a good habit of eating two breakfasts.

    My high school life has been filled with many ups and downs, whether it was social or academic. Even though my current high school was not my first choice, I never regretted attending Southside High School. "Since you have chosen it, then it is the best for you, " said my parents.

And I had to miss out on one of the most important speech and debate competitions all year: States. I was heartbroken. I realized that I could not survive my junior year on my own, so I had to get help fast.

    Once I got a tutor, my grades went from Cs, Ds, and even some Fs, to nothing but As and Bs. I slowly started to gain my confidence back in all of my classes and even myself.
