Read the story about Pat and her pet turtle. Answer the questions.
Pat has a pet turtle, Jasper. She loves it very much. She feeds it every morning and washes the fishbowl twice a week. She likes looking at it moving slowly. Sometimes she puts it on the floor and taps its shell with a finger, and then it hides its head and legs under the shell.
One day, Pat came home after school, and she called out to her pet turtle while she was walking into her room.
"Jasper, I'm home." When Pat walked into the room, she didn't see her pet turtle in the fishbowl. She quickly ran down to the kitchen.
"Mom, have you seen Jasper? It's not in the fishbowl," Pat said in a crying tone.
"No, I haven't seen it. Oh! Mrs. Williams visited me this morning with her grandson. I showed him your pet turtle, but I don't think he took it." Then Pat's mom called Mrs. Williams and asked whether she had seen Pat's turtle after her grandson was playing with it. Unfortunately, the answer was no. Pat felt very sad and stayed in her room quietly. Her mom told her she would buy her a new turtle, but she wanted Jasper.
That evening, Pat didn't say anything during supper. When she was about to go to bed, her mom yelled in the bathroom. "Pat, I found Jasper!" Pat instantly got up and ran to the bathroom. Jasper was under the mat. Nobody knew why it was there, but Pat and her mom were glad to find it. "I'm so glad to find you. I will never lose you again. Please don't let Mrs. Williams' grandson play with my Jasper ever again, Mom!" Pat said to her mom. "OK, I won't. I'm sorry, dear," her mom replied with a sorry look on her face.

Please review the safety manual on the wall one more time," the science teacher said.
"Ouch!" John cried out loud.

Read about Bill. Answer the questions.
Bill likes to play tricks on people. One day, he was in his brother's room and found a notebook on his bed.
"I'm going to hide it somewhere and give it back to him when he promises to share his cookies with me," Bill said to himself and hid it under the couch, but he forgot about it after supper that evening.
The next morning, Bill's brother, David, went to school without knowing that Bill had hidden his notebook. Unfortunately, he got detention in school for not bringing his notebook that he was supposed to hand in for his assignment. That day, he came home late from detention.
"Why were you late, David?" His mother asked when he walked into the house.
"I lost my notebook that I did my homework in, and my teacher didn't believe that I had done my homework, so I got detention," David said in an upset voice. Bill heard what had happened to his brother at school, and he felt sorry.
"I have something to tell you, David. I'm really sorry. I thought it would be fun to hide your notebook, but then I forgot to give it back to you. Can you please forgive me?" said Bill.
"It's not right to take others' belongings without asking. If you do that one more time, I will be very mad at you," said David in an angry voice.
"I won't do it again. I promise," said Bill.

When you injure your body, you will see different types of skin injuries: bruises, cuts, and burns. Your skin turns red or purple when you bump into something hard. A bruise appears when blood vessels in the skin are broken. If you break layers of your skin, you will probably get a cut. When your blood vessels are cut, the blood will come out and thicken to make a scab over your cut. When you touch something extremely hot or cold by accident, you get a burn. It gives you pain, redness and swelling, and if it becomes serious, you will see a blister or even experience temporary numbness.
