                                              The Monster(1)

Jack crawled through a hole in the tree house floor.

Wow! The tree house was filled with books. Books everywhere.

Very old books with dusty covers.

New books with shiny, bright covers.

"look. You can see far, far away," said Annie.

She was peering out the tree house window.

Jack looked out the window with her. 

Down below were the tops of the other trees.

In the distance he saw the Frog Creek library. The elementary school. The park.

Annie pointed in the other direction.

"There is our house," she said.

Sure enough. 

There was their white wooden house with the green porch.

Next door was their neighbor's black dog, Henry. 

He looked very tiny.

"Hi, Henry! "shouted Annie.

"Shush! "said Jack, "We are not supposed to be up here."

He glanced around the tree house again.

"I wonder who owns all these books," he said. 

He noticed bookmarks were sticking out of many of them.

"I like this one," said Annie. She held up a book with a castle on the cover.

"Here's a book about Pennsylvania," said Jack.

He turned to the page with the bookmark.

"Hey, there's a picture of Frog Creek in here," said Jack. 

"It's a picture of these woods!"

"Oh, here's a book for you," said Annie.

She held up a book about dinosaurs. A blue silk bookmark was sticking out of it.

"Let me see it." Jack set down his backpack and grabbed the book from her.

【难点讲解】

crawl

1 爬,爬行;匍匐前进

e.g. 

Our body is just starting to crawl. 我们的宝宝刚开始爬。再比如房里着火了,越接近地面,二氧化硫等有害物质就越来越低,所以如果身处在这样危险的境地,应该匍匐前进。

We should crawl away from the burning house. 我们应该从燃烧的房子里面匍匐着出来。

2 这个词呢也指昆虫的爬行

e.g. There's a spider crawling up your leg. 有只蜘蛛正顺着你的腿往上爬。

缓慢行进

e.g. The traffic was crawling along. 来往车辆缓缓而行。也可以指时间的流逝

e.g. The weeks crawled by. 几个星期慢慢过去了。

卑躬屈膝;谄媚;巴结;拍马屁。表示这种意思时,crawl后面一般会跟to sb. 

e.g. She is always crawling to the boss. 她对老板总是阿谀奉承。

(这让助助想到了今年的春晚,有个小品《投其所好》里面就塑造了一个马屁精,那么马屁精究竟叫什么呢?我们可以用crawler来表示,加一个"er"就好啦~)

此外,大家注意一个短语哦,be crawling with sth 挤满,爬满。

e.g. The place was crawling with journalists. 在今后的学习中可以用到哦~


far away

遥远的意思

e.g. I live far away from my school. 我住的地方离学校很远。

far awayfar from的区别:

far away 用作表语或状语away可以省去因此far away = far ; 

far away from = far from.  

far (away) 后不接宾语;

far (away) from 后一定要接宾语。

此外,far from除了表示距离的”远离”之外,还有”远远不,完全不,决非”之意,后接名词,动名词或形容词。e.g. He is far from rich. 他一点也不富有。

elementary

1初级的;基础的

比如现在小朋友们学的都是基础英语课程,就可以这样说:an elementary English course. 现在同学们英语都处于初级水平,所以可以说:at an elementary level.   

基本的 

e.g. the elementary laws of economics. 基本经济法则。

3.简单的,容易的。  

e.g. elementary questions 简单的问题。

在文中,elementary school 是指小学,那么幼儿园怎么说呢?很多小朋友知道,kindergarten. 而中学我们可以用middle school来表示~

be supposed to do 

这个短语很重要呢,现在助助给大家总结一下。

(按规定、习惯、安排等)应当,应该,须。   

e.g. You were supposed to be here an hour ago. 你本应该在一个小时以前就到这儿。

这个意思其实就表示按照往常习惯、规定等应该做的事情。

2. 一般认为,人们普遍觉得会 

e.g. I haven't seen it myself, but it supposed to be a great movie. 

这部电影我还没有看过,不过人们普遍认为很不错。

那么这个短语的反义词是什么呢?很简单就是not be supposed to do sth. 表示不准,不应当,不得。 

比如有时候去公园,会看到警示语,上面写着:You are not supposed to walk on the grass. 不准践踏草坪。

glance

这个词就是扫视、瞥一眼、浏览的意思。

比如浏览报纸,我们可以说:He glanced at the newspapers. 

栗子想重点说明下与glance有关的两个短语。

首先,at a (singel) glance 立刻,一眼,(只)看一眼。

e.g. He could tell at a glance what was wrong. 他只看一眼就看出可问题的所在。

下面就是短语 at first glance. 这个表示乍一看;乍看之下。举个例子,  At first glance the problem seemed easy. 乍一看问题似乎很简单。同学们记住了吗?
