Last Friday, 6-year-old Landon Johnson went to the River Town Crossings Mall in Grandville with his family. While there, the boy and his cousins took turns chatting with Santa, sharing their Christmas desires.
After telling the man in red he wanted a Wii, a toy dinosaur and a remote control car, Landon hopped off Santa’s lap to rejoin his family. But a few moments later, he raced back to Santa’s side: he’d forgotten to tell him something important. Specifically, Landon shared his worry with Santa that his autism(自闭症) would land him on the “naughty list.”
His mom, Naomi Johnson, explained to WOOD-TV this week that Landon is often told he’s “naughty” by people who mistake his autism for bad behavior. “You get the stares when you’re at the grocery store if he’s too loud,” Johnson said. “He’s been told by other people before, ‘You don’t need to be so naughty,’ or, ‘Why are you naughty?”
Johnson says Santa took the time to listen to Landon’s worries, and held the boy’s hands all the while. “Santa sat him next to him and took Landon’s hands in his and started rubbing them, calming them down. Santa asked Landon if it bothered him, having Autism? Landon said yes, sometimes. Then Santa told him it shouldn’t. It shouldn’t bother him to be who he is,” Johnson said.
Landon told Santa that he sometimes “gets in trouble at school and it’s hard for people to understand that he has autism,” but that he’s “not a naughty boy.”
“You know I love you and the reindeer（驯鹿）love you and it’s OK. You’re a good boy,” Santa told WOOD-TV about the chat with Landon. “You’re a good boy, you know.”
Johnson said she was incredibly moved by Santa’s thoughtful words. “This stranger in a red suit told my son the same message I’ve been trying to get through to him for a while now — that he’s special and I love him just the way he was made,” the mom told Today.com. “Seeing Landon’s face light up in that moment was just incredible. I couldn’t stop crying. He was the real Santa Claus.”
24. What did Landon do after he raced back to Santa?
A. He shared Christmas desires with Santa.
B. He checked if he was the real Santa Claus.
C. He told Santa how his autism had bothered him.
D. He asked for a toy dinosaur and a remote control car.
25. What did Santa tell Landon to do?
A. Avoid those who mistake him. B. Remain what he is.
C. Try to change the way he behaves. D. Tell others about his autism.
26. What can we infer from the text?
A. Every child is quite possible to be bothered by autism.
B. Chatting with Santa was a special Christmas gift for Landon.
C. Santa Claus is always popular with children and their parents.
D. Naughty boys are hard to understand because of their bad behaviors.
27. What’s the best title for the text?
A. It’s OK to be you B. Autism is really a problem
C. Find time to chat with Santa D. Don’t stay with naughty boys
When kids hit puberty(青春期), their bodies and minds go through tons of changes, including the larynx, the voice box in the throat. The larynx is what gives you your voice. You can find your larynx by touching the front of your throat and humming（哼）. When you feel vibrations(震动) under your fingers, you’ve found it!
When the larynx grows larger during puberty, it sticks out at the front of the throat. This is what’s called an Adam’s apple. Everyone’s larynx grows during puberty, but a girl’s larynx doesn’t grow as much as a boy’s does. That’s why boys have Adam’s apples. Most girls don’t have Adam’s apples, but some do.
But why is it called an Adam’s apple? If you think it’s called that after the story of the Garden of Eden where Adam ate a piece of the forbidden fruit that got stuck in his throat, you’re right. An Adam’s apple sometimes looks like a small, rounded apple just under the skin in the front of the throat.
This larger larynx also gives boys deeper voices. Actually, girls’ voices get a little bit deeper as their larynxes get larger, too. But because boys’ larynxes grow so much more, it makes their voices deeper than girls’ voices.
The larynx doesn’t grow to its new size overnight, though. If you’ve ever heard a teenage boy’s voice sound squeaky(发短促尖叫声的), you’ve heard a larynx trying to get adjusted to its new size!
28. Who has Adam’s apples after puberty?
A. All kids. B. Most girls. C. Most boys. D. Boys.
29. What makes a person’s voice deeper?
A. The size of the larynx. B. The length of puberty.
C. The amount of body changes. D. The shape of one’s throat.
30. Which of the following is true about the larynx?
A. The larynx comes after Adam’s apples.
B. The larynx grows gradually in one’s teens.
C. The larynx grows the moment a person is born.
D. The larynx is a piece of apple stuck in the throat.
31. What’s mainlytalked about in the text?
A. Where an Adam’s apple exists. B. What an Adam’s apple is.
C. When teenagers have their puberty. D. How squeaky a teenage boy’s voice sounds.
A group of kids at McIntyre Elementary School, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, have created a special bench to make sure their fellow classmates aren’t left out on the playground. Called the “Buddy Bench”, students can use the seat as a safe and supportive place to let others know they’d like to be included in playtime, but may be too shy to ask.
The concept of the Buddy Bench is simple: Students who want to partake in playground games and activities, but may feel hesitant, can take a seat, which signifies(表明) to other children on the playground that they may need something extra to encourage them to participate.
The idea for the bench came about last year, when Farrell, school counselor at McIntyre Elementary, was conducting a leadership group to help students overcome shyness and gain confidence. Four fourth-grade students came up with the idea for the Buddy Bench in this workshop, and worked with Farrell to draft a letter to present to the Parent Teacher Staff Organization to make the bench a reality. The PTSO approved the students’ proposal, and installed(安装) a bright metal bench with a cheerful sign that reads “Buddy Bench” on the school’s playground.
Since it was installed on Nov. 16, the bench has been effective. The simple concept has resonated with(引起共鸣) the students, and already has created a better environment within the school community.
“Each day, I go to see the buddy bench working,” Farrell said. “The lessons they are learning now will benefit them throughout their entire lives. It is simply a beautiful example of kids wanting to be kind and continue to be kind every day.”
32. Who is Buddy Bench created for?
A. Students who love games and activities.
B. Students who want and continue to be kind.
C. Students who are left out on the playground.
D. Students who are in Farrell’s leadership group.
33. Who thought of the idea for the Buddy Bench?
A. Farrell. B. Four students. C. The PTSO. D. Some parents.
34. What does the word “they” in the last paragraph refer to?
A. The PTSO. B. Buddy Bench users.
C. The workshop members. D. Farrell and teachers.
35. Which of the following statements can show “the bench has been effective”?
A. More and more creative ideas have come up.
B. The workshop kids have set a good example.
C. The PTSO has decided to provide more buddy benches.
D. Some shy students have found friends on the playground.
If someone says you are smart, what do they mean? 36 The answer is not as easy as you might think. This is because the word smart has many meanings.
For example, someone could say you look smart or are dressed smartly. 37 To use a slang expression(俚语), they could say, “You look really cool!”
38 If you accidentally trip over a chair and fall down, you might shout, “Wow! That smarts!” If you are standing too close to a campfire, you could say your eyes are smarting from the smoke of the fire. Here the word “smarting” means a sharp pain.
39 If someone is smart as a whip(鞭), they are able to think very quickly.
However, different people have different ways of being smart. Some people are considered street smart. They may not have a strong education. But they are good at dealing with people and problems in the real world. Other people might be book smart. 40 But they may not be so smart when dealing with people or real-world problems.
A. Is it a good thing or something bad?
B. This means they have spent many years in school.
C. In fact, maybe that person is no longer your friend.
D. But the most common meaning of smart is to be intelligent.
E. That means they like what you are wearing and your physical appearance.
F. In fact, a child who has a smart mouth makes rude comments, not smart ones.
G. But if something smarts, it can be unkind or hurtful, either physically or mentally.
Our character, 41, is a combination of our habits. “Sow a thought, harvest an action; sow an action, harvest a habit; sow a habit, harvest a character; sow a character, harvest a 42,” the saying goes.
Habits are powerful factors in our lives. Because they are consistent, often unconscious 43, they constantly, daily express our character and produce our effectiveness or ineffectiveness.
As Horace Mann, the great educator, once 44 it, “Habits are like a rope. We weave a string of it every day and soon it cannot be broken.” I personally do not agree with the last part of his 45 . I know habits can be learned and unlearned. But I also know it isn’t a(n) 46 fix. It involves a 47 and a faithful commitment.
Those of us who watched the lunar voyage of Apollo II were quite amazed as we saw the first men walk on the moon and return to earth. 48 to get there, those astronauts obviously had to break out of the huge gravity pull of the earth. 49 energy was spent in the first few minutes of 50 in the first few miles of travel, than was used over the next several days to travel half a million miles.
Habits, 51 have huge gravity pull more than most people realize or would 52 . Breaking deeply 53 habits such as delay, hesitation, impatience or selfishness that go against basic principles of human effectiveness 54 more than a little willpower and a few minor changes in our lives. “Lift off” 55 a great effort, but once we break out of the gravity pull, our freedom 56 a whole new dimension.
57 any natural force, gravity can work 58 us or against us. The gravity pull of some of our habits may 59 be keeping us from going where we want to go. But it is also gravity pull that keeps our world together, that keeps the planets in their orbits and our universe in order. It is a powerful force, and if we use it effectively, we can use the gravity pull of habit to create the cooperation and 60 necessary to establish effectiveness in our lives.

The dinners we had every Sunday when I was a boy were feasts fit for a king. There 61 (be) loaves of bread ready to be eaten. They were great with butter and even 62 (good) when you dipped them in the sauce. My grandma, who we called "Nanny", would always bake them a day ahead so they would be ready. I remember 63 (watch) her hand make the dough（面团）. I would often ask to help only because I wanted to have 64 bite of the dough before she placed it in the pans to bake.
One day I 65 (foolish) asked Nanny why she didn’t just buy bread at the store 66 (save) time. “Because they’re not as good,” she said with her thick 67 （Italy）accent. Then she laughed, smiled, and gave me a piece of dough to eat.
Nanny was right. Today I buy my bread at the store and it isn’t as good. It is factory-made and 68 (lack) all the taste, warmth, and love that Nanny put into hers. Store-bought happiness is a sad substitute for homemade joy. 69 you want lasting love, permanent peace, and endless joy, then you have to bake them 70 your own.

The old saying “The early bird catches the worm.” show us the importance of planning, working hard and trying constant. To achieve outstanding results, most people must plan ahead and work diligently to overcome all kind of difficulties.
That has been my own experience, either. When I first started high school, I seldom passed my exams, so I never prepared well. Later, my teacher, Mr. Black, advised me plan everything in the advance. She asked me to study hard as well. After a year of putting his advice onto practice, I can now easily pass all my exams. There are no shortcuts to succeed.
