Why bikes school should be less expensive Speech

Why bikes should be less expensive Do you like to ride bikes? Do you want bikes to be less expensive? Have you ever been to a bike store and couldn’t afford an amazing bike to ride? Well I know your pain, bikes are way too expensive! Bikes should be less expensive because it reduces traffic as bikes take up less space on the road than cars, so you can get to places quicker on your bike. Also you don't need fuel and bikes are way cheaper than cars. But bikes are still extremely expensive and NEED TO BE CHEAPER! If bikes are less expensive it will help the environment because there is less pollution and less pollution means less people will get ill. Making bikes cheaper means no more global warming. If there is no climate change that means the Earth's temperature will be the same. Bikes have to be less expensive because it helps reduce noise. When people have to go to work early and others are at home sleeping, it is annoying when people pass other people’s homes in their cars and honk really loudly. Bikes are quieter as they only have bells, and bikes do not have an engine. Therefore, if more people rode bikes, people would sleep better in the morning. If you sleep better in the morning and night, when you wake up you have more energy to ride your bike and you won’t be tired. When you're pumped up it feels like you can do anything and go anywhere on your bike. Overall bikes should be less expensive because they don’t take much space on the road. Also, bikes help the environment unlike cars which pollute the Earth. Bikes are also much quieter. Bikes are amazing, I know I just love riding my bike and feeling the cool breeze and breathing in the fresh air. So, let’s go make bikes less expensive!

Argument

W.A.L.T: structure an argument


I believe my parents should get me a chrome-book so I can do my school work on it


Our audience is our parents or relatives we are trying  persuade  in getting a chrome-book for school.


I will need a chrome-book because it would save more paper and it would be easier to correct mistakes. I will also need a chrome-book for school because I would become smarter by searching words or facts up on Google.  I would also need one for school because it would  make it easier for the teacher to deal with chrome-book in class. Also I will be less annoying because I will be entertained and will not be disturbing  family, friends and acquaintances if I have a Chromebook. You also can be creative by using drawing apps and study apps on a Chromebook.


A Chromebook will be easier to correct mistakes because it has spellcheck,tense and punctuation capital letters and full stops it is also easier so you don’t need to rub out the word, letter or sentence it would also be easier by going on websites and searching up facts rather than buying or looking in books for the answer. If your school shares Chromebook between classes it will be easier for the teacher to deal with Chromebook rather than booking them for the class. Also any devices can make kids entertained because there are videos to watch and apps to study or have fun on with Chromebooks. It will be easier to do things and you can do whatever you like.


I’ll tell my parents what I’m going to do on the Chromebook. My parents would ask me what would I do on it and I would reply, I would finish all my school work on the Chromebook and study on apps like study ladder  sum dog and many more. I would also my parents them that I am responsible enough to have one. I will show them by walking my dog every day, doing all my chores and looking after my sibling (if I have one). The last thing I would say to my parent would be that if they wanted to see what I do at school I could show them on my own personal blog.   

Overall children ages up to 7 and further should get a Chromebook if they don’t have one because it is easier find facts on Google or  on websites instead of buying books for them. If you are a busy parent you should buy a Chromebook for your child because it will keep entertained  and more quieter. It  is also easier for the person to correct mistakes. You can also see family and friends on a device so you do not have to go to their house. to visit them. Also more than one person can use the device so they can learn to share!
