Hello welcome back to my blog! today, I Have finished my response to text. This really cool article is called trespass by Vince Ford, what I like about the story was the end when they were skimming rocks across a Waterhole. What I found interesting about this presentation was the Vocabulary because Even though there was some hard words i could still read the article and figure out what it means. The most easiest part of this presentation was the Challenge because I could tell what was happening in the story and I could Write it down in this Presentation.

My Opinion Writting

Hello welcome back to my Blog today we learnt about Video games. We had to learn about if Video games should be taught in school here is my Writing task Hope you like it!

 

In the space below begin your writing;

________________________________________________________________

I will Argue That video games should be taught in school. To support my Argument I will use 

Three points;

 school can teach you how to play Calmly instead of raging and Swearing.

 It can  help you communicate with other people.

You can Practise gaining your skills and participate in an E-sports tournament and Stream on twitch to make money.

______________________________________________________________________

Firstly, I think Gaming should Be taught in school because It could teach us how to play more calmly instead of raging over little things, Cyberbullying and violence.But if we don’t learn about Video games then lots of people will get High blood pressure and stress which is not good for anyone .

 

Secondly, Gaming can also help Mental illness like Anxiety and Depression 

 By realising your stress by Playing with friends to make you feel better rather than being sad. 

 

Lastly, I agree with this because if we were taught Video Games in school then We could Gain our skills and participate in an E-Sports Tournament and Win because of what we learnt in school. You can also make money from Streaming on twitch while playing Video Games. This is good Because you can Communicate with other people in the game and Make friends

We could also learn Video Games in school to teach other people how to play and Become 

Good like other Twitch Streamers and players.

Would You Rather

Hello  Welcome Back to My Blog. This is my Would you rather writing  the choices were To Live in a World with no video games or Live in a world with no computers. This is very good because Technology Can sometimes cause some Cyber-bullying. What was Hard for me was the Examples and the point of the Writing.

 

    Would you rather?

 

Live in a world with no computers?

 

OR

Would you rather live in a world with no video games?

 

My choice would be to live in a world with no video games. Video games can sometimes give bad education and can cause cyberbullying. Instead of playing video games you can play Board games like Hopscotch and Hot Potato. If We didn’t have Computers then it would be hard to research like Learning about the Earth. We wouldn’t be able to Research any information about the Earth.
