By Teera Ades One day, Adina was in gymnastics class. She was with all of her friends. She was always behind on what they were learning. Her goal was to do cart wheel on the balance bean. While she was trying to do a cart wheel on the balance bean, she fell. All of her friends laughed at her and told her she wasn’t good enough for their gymnastics class. She went home and told her mom, “Everybody laughed at me and said I shouldn’t be in their gymnastics class.” Her mom said, “Keep on trying.” Adina told herself, “I will do a cartwheel on the balance bean.” She practiced and practiced at her house until she knew how to do it best. Next week, she went to gymnastics. She showed all of her friends how she cart wheels on the balance bean. Her friends were impressed and took back what they had said about her.
