"I can't wait to go back to school!" said Mike.

"Me too! I can't wait to see our friends again!" said Melanie.

"I am also excited, but I am also nervous because it is my first day in the second grade," said Chris.

"Don't worry! You will do great," said Mike.

The day finally came for Mike and his friends to go back to school. They were all very excited because they were going to be second graders!

Mike walked into the classroom and saw his friends already there.

"Hi Mike, I am happy to see you," said Melanie.

"I am also glad to see you," said Chris.

Mrs. Jones walked into the classroom with a big smile on her face, because she was also excited for school to begin again.

"Welcome back everyone! I am glad that you are all here," said Mrs. Jones, "I hope that everyone had a good summer."

The kids all said that they had a great summer.

"But I was wondering if you could tell me what you did over the summer?", said Mrs. Jones.

"The first thing I remember doing over the summer was reading with my family," said one boy. "Then we went to the park where we played on the swings and got food."

"I remember when we went on a canoe ride at a place where my family camps for summer," said Mike.

"I had fun at home over the summer because I got to read books from the library and talk on the phone with my friends," Melanie added.

"I went to the circus and saw all of the animals there," said Chris.

"It sounds like you all did a lot of fun activities over your summer breaks," Mrs. Jones told her students.

"We did have a great time," said Melanie, "but we are also very excited to begin our first lesson of the year."

"We are all very excited," said Chris, "but I was wondering if you could tell us what we will be learning this year?"

"You will be learning about reading, writing, math, science and social studies," said Mrs. Jones, "you will also be learning about subjects that you have already started in kindergarten and first grade."

The kids were happy that they were going to learn new subjects as well as subjects that they already knew, because it would make it easier for them to learn new things.

The kids happily started their first lesson and they were reading books with words in it! Mrs. Jones wrote the words in big size on the blackboard, so they could see how words are written.

Mike loved looking at how many words he knew already while Melanie enjoyed seeing how many new words she could learn during her second-grade year at school.

Chris was also happy because he got to see all his friends again after being apart from them for three months over the summer break.

Time flew by and the kids didn't even notice. How fun it was to be back at school and they can't wait for all the new adventures to unfold.
"我等不及要回学校了!"迈克说。

"我也是!我好想见我的朋友们啊!"梅兰妮同意道。

"我好兴奋啊,但也很紧张,因为这是我上二年级的第一天,"克里斯补充说。

"别担心!你没问题的,"迈克安慰他的朋友。

迈克和他的朋友们终于等到了开学的日子。他们都很兴奋,因为他们就要是二年级的学生了。

迈克走进教室,看到他的朋友们已经在那里了。

"嗨,迈克,很高兴见到你,"梅兰妮朝迈克招手。

"我也很高兴见到你,"克里斯微笑着说。

琼斯夫人走进教室,脸上带着灿烂的笑容,开学了她也很开心。

"欢迎大家回来。我希望你们每个人都过了一个很棒的夏天。"

孩子们都说他们度过了一个愉快的夏天。

"但你们能不能告诉我你们在夏天做了什么?"琼斯夫人问道。

"我记得夏天做的第一件事就是和家人一起读书,"一个男孩说。 "然后我们去公园玩秋千,吃好吃的。"

"我记得有一次我们去我家夏天露营的地方划独木舟,"迈克说。

"整个夏天我都在家里玩得很开心,因为我可以从图书馆借书看,还和朋友煲电话粥,"梅兰妮补充道。

"我去了马戏团,那里好多各种各样的动物,"克里斯兴奋地告诉大家。

"听起来你们在暑假都有很多有趣的活动。"

"我们确实玩得很开心,"梅兰妮回答道,"但我们也很开心回来上课。"

克里斯紧接着说,"我们都很兴奋,您能不能告诉我们今年我们要学什么啊?"

"你们要学习阅读、写作、数学、科学和社会研究,"琼斯夫人说,"还要继续学习你们在幼儿园和一年级已经开始的一些科目。"

孩子们很高兴他们将学习新的科目,以及继续一些已经开始的科目,这样会让学习新事物更容易一些。

迈克和他的朋友们愉快地开始了第一堂课,他们开始阅读有字的书啦!琼斯夫人在黑板上将这些字写得大大的,这样他们就可以看到这些字是怎么写的。

迈克喜欢看他已经认识了多少个字,而梅兰妮想知道她在二年级能学多少个新字。

克里斯也很高兴,因为在与他的朋友们分开了三个月后,他终于又可以每天和他们见面了。

时间飞逝,孩子们都没有注意到。回到学校是多么有趣啊,他们迫不及待地期待着前方所有新的冒险。
