Start School Later

Alarm Clock 2

Do any of you wake up and want to go back to sleep? Well I do. Do you want to sit at your desk nodding your head like a zombie? I don’t. And think of the teachers! Staying up late a taking care of their children and checking our work, looking for mistakes that we made. And I think here the most important fact that I learned when people don’t get enough sleep, they could get sick. All kids and teachers should benefit to start school later.

If kids got more sleep, they would stay more focused in the lesson, and would get better grades. Imagine you’re a teacher and you saw one of your students dozing off in La La Land(La La Land is what we call in our class if one of our students is not paying attention). How would you feel???

Think about the teachers staying up late doing chores and taking care of their family…Well I think when people don’t get enough sleep the could get pretty grouchy. And I experienced that with my mom every school morning.

Here is the most important fact-when people don’t get enough sleep their immune system get weaker and people can catch the Flu or a cold really easy. If we could start school a little later kids would miss less and get more progress done because their organzm gets enough sleep.

I suggest to start school later so that kids would have much more fun, stay much more healthier, much more energetic, much more focuse etc. And I hope you agree with me.

    Dear Alexandra,
    I think that we should start later. Most days I wake up at 6:00 and I think that school should start later I can’t agree more.
    love your friend,

    Dear Alexandra,
    I have actually wrote many pieces of writing about starting school later so I completely agree and know a lot about this topic. I like the paragraph about the poor teachers having to grade 30 kids papers, thinking of lesson plans, check 30 students writing, and much more. I bet teachers have a lot better things to do, so if we start school later the teachers will have more time to sleep and relax.
