Plant Trees

It was breezy yesterday and the weather was comfortable. My class teacher led our students go to plant trees near the suburbs. We took a bus there and then we started to work. We first weeded the grass together. Then the boys dug pits and girls planted the young trees into the pits. All of us worked very hard. In a short time, we were all wet with sweat. After the young trees planted, we began to water. There is a pond near, so we took water easily. At about four oclock in the afternoon, we finished all work and took a photo to remember this meaningful day. We were tired but happy.

My Free Time

As a middle school student, I dont have much free time, but I still have a lot of things to do.

How Ive Changed

When I was a little child, I used to play with my friends all day long. We found that almost anything could bring fun to us. But now, I am growing up, things seem to change gradually that I dont realize. I had a lot of time to play before, but now nearly all my time is spent on study and homework. I used to watch entertainment program but now I prefer news and English programs. Generally speaking, things turn better. Now, I am interested in reading and writing. I think that the more good books I read, the more knowledge I get. Writing is a good way to practice my thinking and improve my writing skills. Besides, I become more independent. I can deal with many problems by myself. I think its important change for me.
