Write to Learn - Reading vs. Other Activities
Dear President of the School Board,
Kids should be more involved in reading because of how helpful it is to them. I think that more kids should be involved in reading because this way they can learn new things. I think that kids would get more encouraged to read if they are able to pick their own books and decide which ones are right for them. We are able to do that now, but I think we should be offered some more choices for our reading. This will make it easier for us to choose our own books and decide what works for us.
A way that I think we can get people encouraged to read instead of playing video games is to get more books that can fit our choices. We can get our own options of what we want to read. I think the books that fit me the best are books with a lot of paranormal activity and things with ghosts. These books fit me best because I know that they are easy for me to understand, so I can retell what has been happening in the books. I enjoy reading these types of books because they can be easier to understand.
I think that more kids need to start reading more than playing video games, watching TV and any other thing. I honestly don't really read that much outside of class, but I think I need to since reading is really important. Reading is important for any class no matter what. You are going to need reading class for anything in your future. We are always going to need our reading skill, so we need to practice it.
Kids now need to learn that they are going to need reading in their future. This is really important for their future, graduating and getting into a good college. Some teachers could maybe encourage their students to read. Some kids parents could also help out if they want their kid to have a good future. Reading is very important for our education and more students should be influenced to read more. Maybe, some kids would choose reading over video games if the book was based on a video game. We could also find a good genre of books for other kids to read.
In my opinion, I think I need to read more outside of school. I might want to do some more reading during class time, but I still think I can read more outside of school. I say this because I usually will only read during class time. I know I can find a way to read outside of class, but I usually choose not to. A way that I think I can read more outside of class by finding the types of books I like reading. There are certain types of books I can enjoy reading and be able to understand.
My main purpose of writing this is because I think kids should be influenced to read more books instead of always playing video games and watching TV. This will help with their education and future. They are going to need their reading skill in order to get good grades in school and do good things anywhere else. This is a very important skill I think everyone needs to have. I think that I might want to choose more books that fit me like scarier ones. That will encourage me to read more. Those are some ways I think kids can get encouraged to read more than playing video games.
