The Dot book reminded me of when I learned to ride a bike. It does because the teacher encouraged the kid and when I learned to ride my bike it took encouragement from my parents. Even though I fell off I got back on and was able to do it just like the kid in The Dot who succeeded in art because of her teacher.
Have you ever thought studying was a waste of time? I used to, but after this event, my mind changed. I usually pay very good attention in school, so usually I don’t have to study, and still get good grades. But I am not very good at social studies, and I decided not to study for a test, and that’s why this extraordinary day happened.
When we had a hard test on social studies, I thought it wouldn't be a big deal. When we started the test I got through most of it, but there was one question I couldn't comprehend. Social studies was the last class, so my marvelous third grade teacher thought I could finish it after school. I tried to think of the answer and couldn’t.
Because I was after school for thirty minutes trying to figure that out my dad even went into the building to figure out why I was so late. Eventually I figured it out though, and I learned that I should study for a test, especially if it is the last class of the day, because I don’t want to go through that again.
Just then I wish I had studied, so I didn't have to stay after school. Now I do study, so I get better grades on tests. This event has never happened to me ever again. I wish I had studied, so this never happened in the first place.
