We clean up the school every Wednesday afternoon under the supervision of our teacher. The teacher assigns some of us to clean the floors, some of us to pick up trash, and some to do other things.
     My job was to water the plants. We all have fun cleaning up the school. Thatfs why our school always looks good. We have planted green plants and beautiful flowers around the playground. And we have lots of big trees around our school. Thatfs why the school atmosphere is refreshing all year round.

The scary typhoon went away today. I went out into the garden and saw that the wind had blown over the flowers and trees that my grandfather had worked hard growing since we were little. That made me sad. Lots of the longan fruit that we eat for snacks on our bicycle rides had fallen onto the ground, and that made my brother and sister cry. We decided to fix up the garden, so we picked things up and planted new plants. Now, the garden is better than ever.
