Spring Discovery
  This spring, we’ll gather in the forest to play games, tell stories around the fire and explore nature!

Join us for any of the Kestrel Sundays!

Together, we’ll safely explore nature and build lasting friendships with each other and stay in the village where the children have enriched their life at each spring camp.

Children walk away from Kestrel feeling at home in nature
and at home in themselves.

Each day begins with a morning circle where thanksgiving,

songs and games bring us further into our bodies. The days are filled with nature-based games that expand our awareness, storytelling from skilled instructors and visiting elders, singing songs inspired by nature’s beauty, exploring the forest and looking for mysteries, sculpting clay, and wandering the caves. At the end of the day, with leaf and flower crowns on our heads, our faces painted and smiles on our faces, we’ll return!

Kestrel is where your child will:

Play and explore the beautiful outdoors.

Experience and practice a variety of wilderness skills and native technology.

Practice awareness, quiet mind, animal farms, curiosity,

exploration, telling the story of the day and gratitude.

Face personal and group challenges tailored to build awareness, self-confidence and group unity.

Our Kestrel instructors are expert in guiding children to safety and helping them freely move in the direction of their own curiosity.
Cost:

$80 per day, $225 for all 3 days

Instructors:

Jonathan Gonzalez, Stephanie Geisel, Paul Tobin, teen instructors and other visiting elders.

Location:
Stony Kill Road in Accord, NY

  Some scientists will say it is impossible to read minds. They will also tell you that you can make educated guesses on what a person might be thinking or feeling. Perhaps there really is nothing mysterious about the power to read minds. Perhaps it is simply human sense based on observation and educated guesses after all, but that’s really a useful ability to learn.

  Learn body language. How a person moves and holds their hands, and even what their eyes are doing are actually telling about what is going on inside their head. For example, pupils (瞳孔) tend to grow larger when you are interested in or excited about something. If you are talking to someone and making eye contact, finding their pupils are large and round, chances are that they are not feigning interest in the conversation. Someone biting their nails is probably nervous. Someone who folds their arms across their chest when they are not cold is probably trying to put a barrier between you and themselves.

  Learn to mentally put yourself in another’s place. Scientists have recently discovered that your brain has neurons (神经元) that become active when you watch someone do something the same as we did the action ourselves. So when you are able to open yourself to understand how other people are feeling, you can figure out reasons and predict future actions, reactions, even thoughts.

  Sometimes you can use Extrasensory Perception (ESP) (超感知觉) to read someone’s mind. This does not mean you will literally be able to read their mind like a book. Instead, you will receive impressions or feelings, which are difficult to explain.

  To improve your ESP abilities, take up meditation (冥想). Because meditation helps enable you to purposely put your brain in a state of relaxed awareness where you will be more successful in reading people and receiving impressions.

Practice and combine all of these steps. You will soon find yourself able to read people’s minds.

24.What is the passage mainly about?

A.The ways of reading people’s minds.

B.The steps of learning body language.

C.The necessity of learning to read people’s minds.

D.The relationship between minds and body language.

25.What does the underlined word "feigning" mean?

A.Expressing.

B.Pretending.

C.Finding.

D.Declaring.

26.Why can you read someone’s mind when you mentally put yourself in his/her place?

A.You suddenly have the ability to understand his or her feeling.

B.Your imagination ability and your past experience are combined.

C.Some neurons in your brain improve your observation ability.

D.Your past similar experiences make some neurons in your brain active.

27.How does meditation help with mind reading?

A.By making educated guesses on minds.

B.By learning to make eye contact.

C.By changing ESP abilities for the better.

D.By strengthening impressions received.

  "Stop all the rushing and screaming: too much excitement is bad for families. Kids are missing out on an essential life — relaxed down time, " says Dr. Charlotte Reznick.

  "Parents work, and kids do scheduled activities — there’s little family time without pressure," says Reznick. "One parent is taking the son to a soccer game, and the other parent is taking the daughter to her swim meet. Then there’s the art class, baseball practice, extra tutoring, and more! By the time the family meet up for dinner, everyone is exhausted."

  All the rushing makes for a short temper. "When parents are reduced to shouting at their children to get them to listen, they lower their own self-esteem as well as losing the respect of their children," says Dr. Carl Pickhardt. "While parents think it shows they’re serious about what they’re saying, they are really just showing helpless desperation at not getting their way."

  These days what kids are learning at school and from the outside is a lot greater than it used to be even just a generation ago.

  "The problem is that stress relieving activities — reading, taking walks or hot baths, watching the sunset and other activities are not even part of most kids’ experience any more,"says Reznick.

  "There are so many more social interaction opportunities in our computer age, but not all of them promote meaningful connections, which is another potential outlet for stress," she says.

  One way to relieve stress is a simple technique called "the balloon breath". It’s a great way for everyone to become calm so that they can respond thoughtfully rather than just react.

Here’s how to do it. Imagine a deflated (未充气的) balloon in your stomach — about two to three inches below your navel (肚脐). Slowly breathe in to a count of 1... 2...3... and feel the lower belly expand, and flatten as you slowly breathe out to a count of 1...2...3...

28.What can we infer from the second paragraph?

A.Kids can hardly enjoy family time due to heavy burdens.

B.Saturday is the only leisurely day of the week for kids.

C.The life of kids is becoming rich due to extra classes.

D.Parents have no time on weekends to care for their kids.

29.What does Dr. Carl Pickhardt think of parents when they yell?

A.They have no self-confidence.

B.They take what they say seriously.

C.They are always behaving like children.

D.They are less respected and seem desperate.

30.What is the function of "the balloon breath" according to the seventh paragraph?

A.To make one cool down.

B.To test one’s patience.

C.To raise one’s awareness.

D.To fill a balloon with air.

31.What is the purpose of the author writing this passage?

A.To tell educators to be patient.

B.To advise parents not to make life too stressful for kids.

C.To encourage kids to pursue creativity.

D.To show that kids need patience and love from their parents.

  Opera is an art form that celebrates the human voice. No other art form creates excitement and moves the heart in the way that opera does, especially when performed by a great singer. Opera is an important part of the Western classical music tradition. It uses music, words, and actions to bring a dramatic story to life. Opera started in Italy at the end of the 16th century and later became popular throughout Europe. Over the years, it has responded to various musicals. In recent decades, much wider audiences have been introduced to opera through modern recording technology. Some singers have become celebrities thanks to performing on radio, on TV, and in the cinema.

  However, in recent years, opera has been facing serious challenges. One current challenge to opera is economics. The shortage of money raises the broader question of how much should be paid to support opera singers and other artists. Society seems to accept the large salaries paid to business managers and the multi-million-dollar contracts given to sports athletes. But what about opera singers? Somehow, people have the idea that artists can be creative only if they suffer in poverty, but this is unrealistic. If artists, including opera singers, lack the support they need, valuable talent is wasted.

  Not only the shortage of money, but also the way money is managed in the opera world has led to hardships. Principal singers are generally paid performance fees once they complete a show. They typically receive nothing during the many weeks of rehearsal (排练) before a show starts.

  Another problem faced by opera is how to meet the demands
of audiences who are influenced by popular entertainment. Pop singers are often judged as much on the basis of how they look as how they sound. These demands may be unrealistic and possibly harmful. Opera singers simply cannot make a sound big enough to fill a large theater or concert hall without a microphone if their body weight is too low. Emphasizing physical appearance over singing ability may cause audiences to miss out on the human voice at its best.

There are no easy solutions to opera’s problems and there are many different opinions about the value of opera. However, every year many young people register for music courses with hopes and dreams of developing their talent in this special art form. The fact that opera has survived many obstacles and continues to attract the rising generation shows that it remains a respectable art form full of value.

32.Which of the statements is TRUE according to the passage?

A.Opera singers’ life stories are dramatic.

B.Opera will soon appear on TV and in films.

C.Opera fans thank celebrities for performing.

D.Opera develops by adapting to new conditions.

33.What can we know from Paragraphs 2 and 3?

A.Opera singers are financially insecure.

B.Opera singers waste their valuable talent.

C.Opera singers get paid before the show.

D.Opera singers perform better if they are poor.

34.What does the author try to say in Paragraph 4?

A.Popular culture has had a positive influence on opera.

B.Audiences know best how opera should be performed.

C.Microphones should be used to make opera more enjoyable.

D.Opera singers’ voices should be valued more than their looks.

35.What would be the best title for this passage?

A.The Economic Challenge to Opera

B.Opera Faced with the Difficulties

C.Opera as Part of Popular Culture

D.The Historical Context of Opera

三、七选五

Developing good study habits isn’t easy.   36 In this way, you’ll become more and more successful as a student.

Start by allowing no interruptions.   37 You have to give 100 percent of your attention to your work. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted by friends or fellow students. Keep your goal in mind; know what you have to do and when it needs to be done. Don’t let other people influence you into not doing your work.

  38 If you study best in the morning, plan to do your hardest subjects first. Remember not to leave today’s work till tomorrow. A delay like this is called "procrastination". If you delay for any reason, you’ll find it more and more difficult to get things done when you need to. You may rush to make up the time you wasted getting started, resulting in careless and error-filled work.

Another good way to study is to take part in partnered and group-study sessions. These allow students to share ideas, and help each other deal with difficult material.   39 

Forming good study habits can be difficult at first, and requires energy and a strong will. But if you commit yourself to it, success will be yours.    40 By doing so, you will know that you have tried. If you are satisfied with what you’ve done and know that you have tried your best, your grade will be the icing on the cake.

A. Figure out when you’re most productive.

B. It’s impossible to study while chatting or watching TV.

C. Always give your best in the classroom and in study sessions.

D. Putting off your task for any reason can make it difficult to finish on time.

E.You may do well enough but maybe you can hardly achieve your goal easily.

F.But start with a plan,put in a lot of hard work,and studying will become easier.

G.In addition,learning among students is a good way of getting a firmer grasp of the material.

  Life in the Slow Lane

  I always seemed to be rushing through my life. I’d   41 my seat belt and slam(猛踩) the accelerator to get where I wanted to go. Or, at the mall, I’d   42 the stores like a runner in the hundred-meter dash. There just weren’t enough hours in the day and I was afraid I might    43 something if I didn’t hurry up.

  And then one day, as fate would have it, I ran out of   44 . As my car coasted off the road, I looked at my watch and hit the steering wheel   45 .I had a meeting in fifteen minutes and I hadn’t even finished   46 for it.

  But as I got out of my car, a(n)   47 thing happened. I looked out towards the east, and the   48 was just beginning to shine over the horizon. There was a low misty   49 hanging over the river, and some ducks were cutting thick, smooth trails(痕迹) across the otherwise glass-like surface of the water. A few sailboats   50 at anchor, their mirror images extending out before them.

  I was shocked. This   51 scene had been going on right outside my car every morning and I had never   52 time appreciating it. I had been rushing around in such a   53 that I had been missing everything!

  I was quietly,   54 , patiently watching as the sun painted a brand new day when a co-worker finally   55 my car and stopped for me. I had somehow been transformed. Life went from a fast break dance into a slow waltz. I began taking long, slow walks   56 my yard and neighborhood, noticing for the first time all the neighbors, mysteries and wonders   57 were right there for me to see all the time. Not only were there sights that I had been missing, but I began to hear entire   58 all around me: birds singing, wind blowing and leaves rustling.

  59 one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, beautiful and indescribably magnificent   60 in itself.

五、语法填空

I had hardly sat down on the train and opened a bar of chocolate   61 a really old man with huge bags sat down across from me. I said hello   62 him, smiling sweetly and then I suddenly thought, "Why not offer him a piece of chocolate?" So I did. He was quite   63 (surprise), but accepted and thanked me. He said that people didn’t usually do things like this for   64 (strange) — at least that was what I understood, because he was speaking a really   65 (usual) dialect, and the train was loud.

Then he opened one of his bags and gave me   66 handful of freshly picked cherries,   67 (explain) that he had just taken them from his orchard. The cherries were really lovely, better than those in the shops, and I enjoyed them very much. It had been just an impulse (冲动) to offer him a piece of chocolate, but if I   68 (do)so, I would never have tasted those lovely cherries,   69 I didn’t even know he had at the time. Life is about giving and taking, and it’s   70 (general) true that if you give, you will receive.

Here is a funny story. One day three mouses said proudly to each other that they each could drink more wine, so they decided to have a drinking contest. At last they both felt dizzy. One suggested, "Will anybody go to the wine cellar to fetch another bottle of wine?" The first stood up and down then fell to the ground. The other two laughed and said, "He was drinking and couldn’t walk." The second stood up. He just made several steps and couldn’t help thrown up. The third laughed hardly and then it was their turn. He stood up and made one step, two steps... Nothing is wrong. He went straight to the wine cellar but took a bottle of wine. He stood there for while, turned back and said excitedly, "Ha ha, where is the cat now?"
