The best gift of all...

My students took part in the international HIPPO warm-up writing contest in December. Their task was to write about the best gift of all in no more than 50-80 words.

The best gift of all is my tablet. I got it for New Year as a gift from my dad and mum. It is white and its name is Xpad. 
My tablet is not very big or heavy. I use it to surf the Internet, listen to music and play games. My favourite games are My Talking Tom, Sky Whale, Subway Surfers, Lep's World and Minion Rush.

For me, the best gift of all is my Santa pyjamas, a present from my parents.
My pyjamas are red and white, so I look like a real Santa. And, I am not a Santa without reindeer! My pyjamas come with brown reindeer socks, a gift from my sister.
This New Year's Eve will be very special because my friend also got the same one-piece pyjamas and we are going to celebrate it together in our Santa pyjamas.

The best gift of all is a special watch. It can get you back in time. It can even take you to the age of dinosaurs. You can see that wonderful world and a lot of dinosaurs of different colours. The watch can even tell you the story about their life.
You can read about this watch in some books, but it would be great to get it as a gift.

The best gift of all is my new computer.
My computer is big and black with good and loud speakers. It has got a clean monitor and a big keyboard. It has also got a small mouse and a clover mouse pad. My computer is quick.
I like my computer because I can play games and surf the Internet. It is very useful.

The best gift of all is my bike. I got it as a gift for my eighth birthday.
It is red and black. Its seat is red and black too. Its tyres are black and white. It can reach speeds up to fifty kilometres per hour!
As soon as I got my bike, it changed my whole life! I started cycling and doing all sorts of bicycle acrobatics.

The best gift of all is my new sneakers for volleyball. My parents bought them over a month ago. They are white with a bit of pink and very comfortable.
I wanted those sneakers from the moment I saw them in the shop. I think that I run faster, jump higher and play better volleyball in them.
When I got them I was very happy. I love volleyball and this gift helps me to play it better than ever.

The best gift of all is our parents' love.
My mother's name is Olivera. She loves cooking and watching films and TV series. My mum does a lot of work in our house.
My father's name is David. He always smiles. My dad is funny and can sometimes get angry, but rarely. He can cook delicious soup. We play video games together.
I love my parents and they love me too. They are the best parents in the world!

Luka Mićić V3

The best gift of all is my twin brother Luka.
He is very funny and silly. I love him because he loves doing different things than me. We talk about music and we have a band too. I play the electric guitar and Luka plays the bass. We train judo together and sometimes meet as rivals in the finals.
This is little weird, but I think that my world would be boring if we did and loved the same things.
