MY DEAR AMAZING IPAD
Reesha Resham Ganglani, P2
My dear amazing iPad, The sight of you makes me glad. In a beautiful case you are clad, But your empty battery makes me sad.
Watching videos on YouTube, Or home-based learning for school,
There’s so much we do together,
Especially the new game which is so cool.
I wish to meet you every day,
But homework must be done,
So I look forward to the holiday,
To spend time together as one.

Technology is amazing, It’s advancing the world. But it is ruling over us, And causes our lives to swirl.
A smartphone can guide you, With information and more. But in hard times it’s a friend, That will give you a shoulder for sure.
The technology will advance
And gadgets will change. But it’s your family and friends
That always remain.
We are drowning in our gadgets And lost all within. The Real World is the people around,
Not the gadgets therein.
Technology is an addition today
Of this tech receiver. In simple it’s termed As Technology Fever.

Thank goodness there is technology. Everyone needs the computer and phones.
Critical Ops is the game I love. How have we lived without technology? No one knows the answer. Our technology is so expensive but yet so good,
Laying endless possibilities. Our lives are filled with technology. Googling is the way to go. Yippee for technology, that helps us daily.
MY FRIEND THE IPAD
Matthew Gim Kai Sheng, P3
The clock strikes six, my playtime is here, I get to see my iPad dear. The work is forgotten. My fingers trail the sleek and smooth surface,
Oh so much joy!
Tap, tap, tap. My boredom relieved. Games and videos, my favourite things.
I wish I can play more, Alas no! iPad my companion... What can I do without you?
TECHNOLOGY IS PART OF US
Poh Yi Xuan Eunice, P2
When my parents are travelling My heart feels like something is missing.
Technology is mankind’s blessing,
WhatsApp being part of our lives, It keeps us always connected Though we are miles apart. Technology is indeed something we can’t do without.
Nurul Jannah Binte Norul Anuar, P2
A machine that rests on your lap, Close it and away we go. To see the words you have to tap, tap, tap.
Can’t live without it, This much I know.
Ho Jun Heng Jayden, P5
Technology is loved by all, who doesn’t love it? Eliminate every other thing, soon there will be only technology!
Cool stuff, it’s awesome! Handphone and tablets are examples. Not like humans, technology can live for a long time. Oh I forgot computers! Look at people, what do they use these days, technology!
Options, there are many, like it or not, technology will rule!
Google, Firefox, Internet Explorer, information online: You must not miss out!
Tanay Ramachandruni, P6
Technology is the prevalence of the generation
Despite the age partition.
Technology may make the world a better place
I’ll tell you, if you can keep up pace.
At first we were amazed by a simple light
Then followed by an advanced space shuttle taking off in the night.
We look at places from across the world
without a peek into a book, filled with pictures painting words
But only with a sneak at technology, so absurd!
On the other side of the coin, it is a ruse
Whatever we do, technology makes a bruise
It runs our lives until we bereave
from the alarm on our phone to the evening TV
Just count our aboriginal’s gibe
Our patience has all gone grey
This has become the way
Reminiscing and rewinding our lives has all gone astray
Man has been gifted with a great shine
Although they never assumed it would be their demise
It seems man’s intelligence has begun to backtrack
Similar to being subdued in a flashback
Of how they did it 100 years ago
Technology is a devil in disguise
And it is only up to us to be wise
There is still a chance for us to turn our lives around
And until it is too late, let us make a rebound!
TECHNOLOGY AND ME
Lovelle Nah Xin Yu, P5
Give me back my calendar,
Give me back my mirror,
Give me back my DVD,
Give me back my book.
Give me back my parents,
Give me back my cousins,
Give me back my aunts and uncles,
Give me back my friends.
Give me back my perfect eyesight,
Give me back my focus,
Give me back my health,
Give me back my life.
Give me back, give me back, I would give up my phone.
VIDEO GAMES! A VIRTUAL ESCAPE OR VICARIOUS TRAP
Ang Jun Ray, P6
A virtual escape,
Misused by many others;
A vicarious trap.
PLAYING VIDEO GAMES
Anaqi Shurahbeel Bin Iskandar, P5
Playing video games is immersing myself into virtual reality;
It is the sound of explosions of grenades in the background.
Video games is the smell of gasoline and death in war,
And also the fear of my enemies.
Playing video games is the taste of dried bread for breakfast in the bunker.
It is also the taste of salty sweat dripping down my forehead,
As I curl my finger around the trigger.
Playing video games is the exhilaration of vanquishing my nemesis.
TECHNOLOGY AND ME
Kate Lui, P3
Technology is powerful.
Technology is helpful.
But technology can be harmful.
So I should be careful.
Technology is remarkable.
