_A gigantic family with six kids are in the train station. After they have boarded their train and are leaving the station, they realize one child is lost. This can become a common problem if you have a big family. I think smaller families are better than bigger families because small families don't need to spend as much money for a large house, it's harder for the members of a smaller family to get lost, and parents will have less work to do with fewer kids.
Imagine that you were strolling around Mars, enjoying the pink sky, which reminded you of cherry blossoms. Then you jumped into a spaceship. When you stepped out, you shook hands with an extraterrestrial creature. This is a possibility if we work hard enough. In my opinion, astronomers and astronauts should spend most of their time, energy, and money trying to make Mars a place that is possible for human life and trying to find extraterrestrial creatures. I think this because then some of Earth's population can go to Mars, scientists can extend their knowledge of the universe by learning from extraterrestrial creatures (if they find any), and on the way, scientists will improve technology, and soon, everyone might acquire something the scientists invented for space use that will be really helpful for daily life
Recess Madness! By Alvin
I think students should have longer recess because recess is great for your health, it helps kids become better students, and recess helps kids learn to like school more. If you disagree about recess, it's a free country so you can disagree with me if you want, but let me show you why I believe kids need more recess.
Imagine a classroom where kids are asking their teacher questions every second. Whoever that teacher is, she would be very busy constantly answering questions. If kids had their own laptops, they could look up the answers to their own questions, instead of constantly asking their teacher. I think kids should have their own laptops at school because then they could do their own research anytime they have a question, they could practice their computer skills, and parents would save money on buying thumb drives for their kids.
Would you like a friend who speaks a language you don't know so you can't communicate? I didn't think so. People should learn foreign languages so that they can understand what people from other countries are saying. Learning a foreign language is also interesting, and it can be helpful too. You never know when you might need to translate a foreign word.
Toys Get an Education By Keo
Children should be allowed to bring toys to school for many reasons. Some children need toys to concentrate on their work, class can be boring for some kids, and if kids have any free time, they won't have anything to do if they don't have toys.
I think dodgeball is a great sport for school. It is a healthy sport for exercise, it is really safe, and it teaches teamwork, too!
Are you thinking about a hamster or a fish as a pet? Are you wondering whether to choose an aquatic or land animal? You don't have to choose, you can have both! An eel can breath air and live under water. Eels make amazing pets for many reasons. Eels are gentle, but not as boring as a fish, and you will have so much fun playing with your eel for at least ten years. And of course, eels can do amazing things. What amazing things, you ask? Buy an eel and you'll find out yourself!
The whistle blows. I slowly get in line and wait for my teacher. Everyone groans when we walk into the school building. We try to hide our bored faces. We trudge up to our classroom. "One third of American children don't even get any recess," I tell my friends quietly so I don't get caught by the teacher talking in the hallway. I feel sad deep inside for those kids. I wonder, "Why does recess have to be so short?" My head feels like it is going to explode. I guess you can tell, I think recess should be much longer!
Would you like to play a game where you run, play, and exercise, all at the same time? Students should be allowed to play dodgeball at their school. First of all, dodgeball is great exercise, dodgeball incorporates a lot of different sports into one, and dodgeball is just plain fun!
