We are learning to write to persuade. What would you say to persuade someone to keep their pile of old tyres? Our writing had to include:
several ideas for uses for the tyres.
elaborate on each idea by giving reasons why each is a good idea.
If you have tyres in your paddock and you don’t know
what to do with them here are some things that you could do with them. You could
use it as a planter because you could plant fresh fruit and vegetables. So you
don’t need to go all the way to town to get vegetables and fruit and waste your
money. If you make a planter you only
need to go outside and pick them. You can also make a tyre swing so if you have
kids they can have fun on it. You can also make a ladder with the tyres and if
you have a tree at home you can make a tree house. And when you have made your
tyre ladder you can put it under the tree house door. So if you have kids they can play in it and
if you put the tyre swing on the same tree they can also play on the tyre swing
as well. You can also make a tunnel and maybe your kids, if you have kids, it
could be their secret lab. When you have kids you can also use the old tyres
for tyre races and roll them down the hill. When the tyres hit the bottom they can get the
tyres and bring the tyres up and they can hop in the tyres and roll in it and that
is if the tyres are big enough for them. They will hop in and... WOOOOOSHHHH down
the hill they go and make sure you check the hill BEFORE THEY ROLL DOWN THE
BECAUSE THERE MIGHT BE ROCKS. You can
also make a tyre tower and stick it with wet mud and then cut a hole at the
bottom so your kids can have fun.
Why would you want to throw away old tyres? You
might think you want to throw them away, but I would keep the old tyres.
If you keep your old tyres and you have kids, old
tyres would be the best things for kids. You could distract them by making them
a swing. Then go and do whatever you want. Then they might love the swing so
much they want to climb to the top of the swing and they go right to the top of
the tree. They come back down to play on the swing. They go super high and you
want to make more of the swing.
They might have had enough on the swing, do not
throw the swing away. You should not throw away the other pile of tyres because
they could come in handy to make something else.
You could have running races with the tyres. Get
more people and have a tyre race with all the other people. Then you shall run
super-fast with your tyre. Race up and down hills and through deep mud as deep
as water. You might crash into a giant tree. Once you finish the race the thing
to do is, don’t throw away the tyres.
These are some reasons why you shouldn’t throw away
your old tyres.
Keep those tyres. So don’t chuck that pile of tyres
because you could use it for planting a vegetable garden. You get fresh food
straight out of the garden and then you know what? You don’t have to pay and
waste your money.
You can make a swing out of a tyre for your kids so
your children won’t be pestering you and your wife.
If you have a farm you could put tyres on the edge
of the cover for silage so your silage won’t blow away. So you will still have
at least silage.
If you have some fish and you don’t want to waste
your money on just a small fish pond, you could use a tyre and put some water
in the tyre and then you have a free home-made fish pond.
If you are hungry you can just get fish and
vegetables from another tyre that is very useful too. Then you get fresh,
yummy, home-made, not paid.
A tyre is also useful for a ladder because if your
kid has got a ball or something and it has got stuck on the roof, your kid is
not happy. Then you could get some super glue and put some super glue on each
tyre and stick them all in a big stack. Then you climb up the stack of tyres.
Oh I forgot you had to super glue the stack of tyres to the ground so you don’t
fall. THEN you climb up the stack of tyres and then put yourself on the roof
and then get the ball or thing that was stuck on the roof. Then you get
something that will get super glue off. Your child will be happy. Trust me, it
Do you know that there is another way that is very,
very super dooper good? If you don’t have a swimming pool and your kids really
are desperate to have a swimming pool, well I can tell you a very clever way to
make one and not have to pay money to get one dug in. Just listen to me and you
and your wife and kids will be happy and your hearts will be full of joy. Your
kids will appreciate it a lot, trust me.
So shall I get started and tell you? OK then. You
just get a tyre and cut it straight with a chain-saw and super glue them
together and make a square for the outside frame. Then you dig a deep hole all
the way so there is like a square hole just in the middle. Then you put
concrete on the sides and at the bottom. Then you put water in it and there you
go. A swimming pool - not paid again (I like saying that).
I have got another excellent idea that will help
you keep those precious, useful tyres that are very super good. If you’re going
camping and you weren’t organised and forgot your tent and it was raining and
you brought tyres, then you could hide under the tyres to keep dry.
That’s all I think I will tell you. So remember you
can use lots of ways to use those helpful, useful tyres. I hope you use those
tyres for all the things I said.
