Sport is the best hobby a child could have.

Sport is the best hobby a child could have. Most people would agree that sport is very important to people's lives, but there are lots of other thing to consider.

To start with sports can be expensive (e.g club fees, uniforms), everyone knows that professional adult players earn heaps of money that would make up for it. If there's lot of kids in your family it's hard for your parents to pay the fees. If you continue your sports until your an adult you could get a good sport job like being an all black player and a black fern.

In my opinion, sports is the best hobby because it's good for your body, but the fact is you should have another hobby like gaming in case you retire from sports. Sometimes your hobby is your job but it's good to have other hobbies like being a gamer and being really good at puzzles. If you retire from being a sport player you could make your other hobby your job.

It would be beneficial if all kids played sports because it good for your develop and you could leave your screen timeout.

Sentence starters for persuasive writting

Every Kid should learn how to swim?

I believe that every kid should learn how to swim(agreeing).

My first reason is as they grow up having kids and one day they will be having a joyful swim around but suddenly their kid got too far to the sea and started to drown and what do you do? (thinking)what?.

Not knowing what to do because you can’t swim the reason why you never had learned a lesson how to swim, what would happen to you child?!.

To start with, most people will agree that kids should learn to swim while there young.

In my opinion kids should have the chance to swim and they should learn how to swim in a deep pool.

If the kid learn how to swim in a baby pool they will pretend to swim but the thing is that they were actually touching the ground.

I’m absolutely certain that every child in NZ should learn to swim. It is important to acknowledge that paying for swimming lessons can be very expensive, especially if there are more than 1 kid in each family. In light of this, the NZ school system requires students to learn to swim and this is usually free.

It would be worthwhile if every kid should join a swimming lesson so they can learn how to swim


Kids should get free time at school everyday?

I disagree that kids should get freetime every day. My first reason is  if they have free time everyday because the kids get bored and have nothing else to do they just have anything in their little brains with something smart just video games and to much eye looking at the netbook playing just games.

In my opinion they should be only playing games and having free time because when they get to collage they will do anything is act dumb because of nothing that they had learn all they had learn is how to play a game that through these year no learner that means they have to start the whole year again of not knowing what to or just staying in one class for a bit.

But on the other hand people or kids will agree just because they are sick of learning they all just want to is play games and parents well some won’t even care just mind what they are doing.
