Who is the greatest teacher in Chinese history? Many people would think of Confucius, whose birthday was September 28. Although he lived over 2,000 years ago, people still remember and respect him for his contribution to the education today.

The whole family drove me to the camp. When we arrived, I saw a lot of kids, 63 (连词)I didn’t know anyone. I began to feel nervous. They gave me a little card 64 (介词) my name on it. Then a girl, who looked 65 (old) than me, came up to me and said, “Hi, Margie! I’m Sara. Our cabin is the Pines.”
66 (Final) the time came when my parents said, “Well, Margie, goodbye. Have a great time. And don’t worry; we’ll write to you often. ”
