                                    The Boy who cried “Wolf”
      There was once a shepherd-boy who kept his flock at a little distance from the village.
Once he thought he would play a trick on the villagers and have some fun at their expense. So
he ran toward the village crying out, with all his might,
      “Wolf! Wolf! Come and help! The wolves are at my lambs!”
      The kind villagers left their work and ran to the field to help him. But when they got there
the boy laughed at them for their pains; there was no wolf there.
      Still another day the boy tried the same trick, and the villagers came running to help and
got laughed at again. Then one day a wolf did break into the fold and began killing the lambs.
In great fright, the boy ran for help. “Wolf! Wolf!” he screamed. “There is a wolf in the flock!
      The villagers heard him, but they thought it was another mean trick; no one paid the least
attention, or went near him. And the shepherd-boy lost all his sheep.

                                           Snow Maiden

      Once upon a time there lived a couple in a village. They had got married for a long time,
but so far they did not have a baby yet. Every single minute they prayed to God, begged for a
baby, but it never came true.
      One day, they went to Snow Mountain. They made a girl from snow and they dressed her
beautifully. When it got dark, they decided to go home and left the snow girl alone. The
following morning, someone knocked the door. “Any body home?” she said. The old woman
inside opened the door and asked, “Who are you?” The girl said “I‟m Snow Maiden, your
daughter”. The old woman was surprised and happy. “Oh really? Thanks God! Come in, please!”
Since that meeting, they lived happily. Snow Maiden was beautiful, kind, diligent and helpful.
Her parents and all of her friends loved her very much. One day, Snow Maiden played with her
friends. They played fire. At first, Snow Maiden just looked at their play. Suddenly, her friends
      asked her to jump on the fire. Of course she refused it because one thing that made her afraid
      was the fire. It‟s because Snow Maiden was made of snow, so she should avoid the fire. But her
      friends kept on forcing her to jump on. Finally, she could not do anything then she did it. She
      jumped on the fire and she melted. Her friends were so sorry about this, they cried and cried
      hoping Snow Maiden could live again, but it was useless. Snow Maiden would not be back
      anymore her mother tried to entertain Snow Maiden‟s friends and asked them to make a new
      Snow Maiden. They went to a snow mountain and started making it. They expected to have the
      new Snow Maiden. Days passed but their dreams never came true.
            Poor them!
                                             The Two Goats

            Once there were two him thin goats. Both of them were hungry. They were tied together
      with a brown rope. They wanted to eat the green leaves from two separated bushes. One bush
      was on the left. The other bush was on the right.
            The goats thought they could do everything on their own. The first goat wanted to go to
      the bush on the left, but the second goat wanted to go to the bush on the right. However, the
      rope was short. They tried but they could not reach the bushes. They were sad.
            Then, the goats decided to work together. First, they are the leaves of the bush on the
      right. Then, ate the leaves on the left. The leaves were delicious. They were happy.

                                     The Dragon of Mount Kinabalu

             Long ago on the top of Mount Kinabalu in Borneo, there lived a dragon. He owned a large
      and beautiful pearl. People believed that he controlled the weather with it.
             The emperor of China heard this and wanted the pearl. He sent his two sons, Wee Ping
      and Wee San to Borneo to steal it. The princes, together with one hundred soldiers, set sail for
      Borneo in twelve sailing junks.
             When they arrived in Borneo, The set out immediately to find the famous mountain. Their
      journey up the rugged slopes of Mount Kinabalu proved very difficult. The dragon guarded his
      cave very fiercely and killed many of their soldiers.
             Then Wee San had a clever idea. He climbed a tall tree, so he could see the dragon‟s
      cave. He noted what time the dragon left his cave to hunt for food and what time he returned
      to it.
             Next he ordered his men to make a fake pearl and a large kite. He waited until the dragon
      left his cave. Then he placed the fake pearl in a bag, slung it across his shoulder and flew up to
      the mountain-top on the kite. He exchanged the real pearl for the fake one and then his brother
      pulled his kite back to the ground.
             The brothers quickly returned to their ships and set sail for China. They sailed safely
      home. The emperor was thrilled with the pearl and gave a big party to celebrate his sons‟

ROWING COMPETITION ( Title from me, is it fit enough?)
           It was a warm day in March. I was very excited. The day had finally come. I was in the
      rowing team for the Olympics. I got up very early and exercised as always. Then after breakfast
      I drove to Drummoyne. My team arrived and at last it was time to start.
           Ready, set and the starting gun went off. We began in the third position and were slowly
      moving closer. There they were. We could see the second boat and then we did it.
           We moved past. My arms were aching. My whole body was sore but we all rowed harder.
           The first boat was just in front I saw a dark shadow near the boat. I looked again. What
      was it? I was sure it was the shape of a cigar. „Oh my God‟, I thought, „I must be seeing
      things. A shark in Parramata River? Impossible!‟
     Just then I pulled my oar out of the water. „Oh no, why only half?‟ I thought. Then I knew.
I shouted to my team, „Shark! Shark!‟ and suddenly we forgot the race.
     We rowed faster than ever back to shore. We made it. Phew, we were safe!.

Paragraf 1–3 merupakan orientation, mengapa? Karena paragrap 1-3 mengenalkan kita
(pembaca) pada tokoh cerita, waktu dan tempat kejadian.

Paragraf 4-5 berisi peristiwa inti yang ingin diceritakan. Oleh karena itu kedua paragraf in ikita
sebut complication.

                                                     Horrible Fly

    I am used to travelling by air and only on one occasion I have ever felt frightened. After
taking off, we flew low over the city. It slowly went high to the sky. But suddenly it turned
round and flew back to the airport.

    An airhostess told us to keep calm and to get off the plane quietly as soon as it touched
down. Everybody on board was worried and we were curious to find out what happened. Later
we learnt that there was a very important person on board. Earlier somebody told the police
that there was a bomb on the plane. After we landed, the police searched the plane carefully.
Fortunately, they did not find a bomb and five hours later we were able to take off again.

                                                My Bad Experience

    I was driving along the coast road when the car suddenly lurched to one side. At first I
thought a type had gone but that then I saw telegraph poles collapsing like matchsticks. The
rocks came tumbling across the road and I had to abandon the car. There was an earthquake.
When I got back to town, there wasn‟t much left.

Contoh Teks Report:


Penguins are birds that cannot fly. There are eighteen different species. They are all splendid swimmers and can propel
themselves through the water at rate of 30 kilometers per hour. They live only in the southern seas of the world, on the
island of Australia, in New Zealand, South Africa and southern South America. Those that live in the snow and ice cannot
build nests.

The biggest are the Emperor penguins which stand about 1.2 meters and weigh about 75 kilograms. When a female lays
an egg, it is the male that keeps it off the ice by resting it on top of his feet. When the chick hatches, the male, which will
not have eaten for two months, then goes off to feed while the female stays with the chick to-feed and protect it.

Adelle penguins gather in huge colonies, sometimes as many as half a million in one group.

Rock hopper penguins are so called because of the way they hop from rock to rock. They have long crests on their
heads. Their chicks are covered with soft down when hathced. They are helpless at first and needed to be looked for
several weeks.

As far back as 1499 it was noted that the jackass penguin brayed like an ass. It is also known as the black-footed
penguin. Gentoo penguins live on many of the Antartic islands. They are very friendly and do not fear man. King penguins
also live in the Antartic. They toboggan on their stomachs at the great speed on the ice to escape their enemies.



Plants are living beings. They need food, water and air for survival.

Plants derive their food from the earth and the air. If you look at their roots, you will find that ends of these roots are like
fine fibers. We call them root-hairs. They absorb water and minerals, then transport them upwards to the leaves through
the trunk and the branches. It is the leaves which prepare the food.

The green material, chlorophyll, prepares the food like a machine. It converts the carbon dioxide taken from the air and
water from the ground into sugar with the help of sunlight. This chemical reaction is called photosynthes. In fact, the
chlorophyll takes energy from the sunlight and uses it to synthesize the hydrogen from water and carbon from carbon
dioxide for making sugar. This reaction also gives out oxygen and water which are excreted by the leaves.



The radio is one of the most popular mass media in the world. Almost all people are familiar with it and most of them own

The radio is effective for distance communication. People get information about the world as soon as possible just by
listening to the radio at home. They also find entertainment like drama, music, etc. on the radio. They can also use radio
to send their family messages. Radio is also good for saying hello to a friend orn sends other kinds of messages just as a
social interaction. The radio is very important to the police, too. During emergencies where telephones do not work and
transportation is impossible, using radio will be very useful.

The history of the radio begins with Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian expert at telegraph. In 1901 he succeeded in
transmitting the Morse code signal for the letter S from Cornwall, England to Newfoundland across the Atlantic.

Contoh Report tentang hewan


Goannas are large Australian lizards which belong to the reptile family.Goannas are yellowish-brown in colour and grow
to about a metre in length.They live in burrows and eat insects, lizards, mice, eggs, and flesh of dead animals. To breed,
the female goanna lays about six eggs in a termite mound.


Contoh Report tentang tekhnologi

                                                          Fax Machine

Fax, the short term for facsimile is a telecommunications technology used to transfer copies (facsimiles) of documents,
especially using affordable devices operating over the telephone network. The word telefax, short for telefacsimile, for
―make a copy at a distance‖, is also used as a synonym. The device is also known as a telecopier in certain industries.
When sending documents to people at large distances, faxes have a distinct advantage over postal mail in that the
delivery is nearly instantenous, yet its disadvantages in quality and its proprietary format have relegated it to a position
beneath email as the prevailing form of electronic document tranferral.


Whales are sea-living mammals. They therefore breathe air but cannot survive on land. Some species are very large
indeed and blue whale, which can exceed 30 cm in length, is the largest animal to have lived on earth Superficially, the
whale looks rather like a fish, but there are important differences in its external structure: its tail consists of a pair of broad,
flat, horizontal paddles (the tail of a fish is vertical) and it has a single nostril on top of its large, broad head. The skin is
smooth and shiny and beneath it lays a layer of fat (blubber). This is up to 30 cm in thickness and serves to conserve heat
and body fluids.
