For the whole school year, we have holidays four times. Spring and autumn last only a week and at this time of year nothing special will do. I either just go out with friends, or we go out of town, if the weather permits. When parents have time, then we go to the dacha, to barbecue. At this time there are often rains, so it happens that it takes a few days just to sit at home playing computer games. While studying for games, there is little time left, and you can play during the holidays. Winter holidays last two weeks, and at the sameRead More →

Recently we all class visited the Historical Museum. This two-story building of an ancient building is located in the center of the city. At the entrance of it there are a tank and a cannon – as battle symbols of the military prowess of our grandfathers, great-grandfathers, who defended our land from the fascist invaders.

Special attention of Russian writers in the 50s-60s of the XIX century attracted three themes: serfdom, the emergence of a new force in public life – the heterogeneous intelligentsia and the position of women in the family and society.

In nature, everything is interconnected. Man and animal are children of one mother – nature. They often help each other. Animals feel care, affection and the owner answer the same. The dog is the first pet to appear from a long time near a person. It helps to protect the house, the cattle… During the Great Patriotic War, in the field hospitals there were dogs-orderlies who found the wounded, helping them to survive: they had a medical bag on their backs and with it the wounded soldiers survived. And how many dogs, perished from fascist bullets! Grateful service is carried by rescue dogs searching forRead More →

Perhaps, in many years people will return to the theme of the Great Patriotic War. But they can restore the events, only having studied the documents, memoirs. It will be later. And now those who bravely rose to defend our country in the summer of 1941 are still alive. Still fresh memories of the horrors of war in their hearts. Such a person can be called Vasil Bykov. V.

My acquaintance with the library took place at an early age, when I was six years old, and I went to a kindergarten. But the impression was so strong that I still remember everything in detail. Huge rooms, stacked shelves. And books on them. Books were everywhere: above, below, on shelves, in cabinets. I then thought: “Can all this be read?” And I promised myself that when I learn all the letters of the alphabet, I will necessarily read all these books. Time passed. The need for a book, in reading, has become inalienable for me. Home library, school and, finally, the search for interestingRead More →

Good is the good that is honest and useful, all that requires us to be a person, a citizen, a family man. This is when we do something and do not demand anything in return, there is no self-interest.

People forgot about their earthly purpose – to do good, to loveRead More →

I like to celebrate all sorts of holidays. It seems that these are some unusual days, in which something interesting will happen. In general, my favorite holiday is the New Year, because it is celebrated by all people, everywhere the festive atmosphere. A birthday is an individual holiday, in which only the birthday person and his relatives participate. Earlier, when I was little, my mom was organizing my birthday.

And I always baked a big cake with cream and chocolate, in which I insertedRead More →
