Children have always enjoyed playing sports. Their parents love to watch them kick balls, run races and ride their bikes. Playing sports keeps children healthy and happy. Try different sports to find ones that you like to play and do them often. A soccer ball can go anywhere with you. A swim suit packs nicely in a suitcase and a bicycle takes you where you want to go for free. Be adventurous and have fun trying new sports.
Remember to keep adding to or making new lists of words in your notebook. Also, copy sentences that you like to reinforce proper English grammar and punctuation.
