Alazhays Speech

Gaming is more educational than sports.

Some people say gaming is bad for children and does nothing for their learning. Well I disagree.
My name is Alazhay and i strongly disagree that gaming is bad for children and does nothing for their learning.

Firstly, One of my reasons is because games teach you to Build, Drive and everything else. Gaming is not bad considering it helps with architecture if you play Minecraft. Gaming should be part of the school curriculum.

Secondly, Researched facts say Gaming helps you by improving critical thinking skills and reading comprehension as well as teaching you new eye coordination skill sets. Gaming stretches your mind so you think harder and use skills. Also a proven fact is because it relieves stress.

Thirdly, Gaming /is an awesome way to learn and earn money at the same time. If you're a youtuber you start getting paid for advertisements on your videos or when you hit 1,000 views on your uploads you get $8.00. Youtubing is a awesome activity. The #1 Highest ranked Youtuber in the world is PewDiePie with earnings of $14 million dollars a year. Now does this want to make you agree with me

Fourthly, Gaming teaches you coordination and you also have to multitask in gaming. In action games you have to use Accuracy and Strategy and Anticipation. Decision making and Problem is a big part of Games like Minecraft Story Mode. When you play games you develop faster reflexes.

So these are my reasons why I disagree about people thinking gaming is bad for children and does nothing for their learning. Thank you for listening to my speech. 


  1. Kia ora! My name is Matthew I go to karoro school. In class we are doing haikus, What is a Haiku you ask? Wait….you didn't ask that? “Wait Matthew, I DID ask that!” You exclaim. Good, anyway that just shows how crazy I am. A haiku is a poem with three lines, the first line has 5 syllables next has 7 syllables then the last has 5 syllables. Get it? I’ll give you an example:


    Space is peaceful,I
    would love a chance just for me
    to go into space!

    It comes from japanese.

    Back to the topic, I very strongly agree to your statement. Honestly!, I play video games all the time and I feel pretty smart (not really)and I also play hockey and I love them both equally the same (i'm lying) Video games Are very (extremely) fun! I also watch you sometimes (all the time) and i'm fine (wrong again!). Also, have you heard of jacksepticeye?(*cough* best youtuber *cough* subscribe *cough* or else *cough*) sorry about him.

    Of course i'm not crazy I was just joking (not really please help me) as I was saying before I strongly agree and It is a very fine persuasive text.
