My first time ice-skating
My dad and I were going to Iceland, so I can learn how to ice-skate. I was thinking,”Ice-skating. One foot, than another, I can do this!” When we got there my dad yelled,”We’re here!” My body trembled with excitement.
When I went on the ice, I almost tripped and fell down, so I did a crazy dance. One of the teachers looked at my name tag and saw that my teacher was named Jenna. She pointed where Jenna was. I tried to skate to her spot, but I couldn’t. I wobbled all the way there. Jenna looked sweet and kind, so I said to myself,”This is going to be the best ice-skating year ever!”
I tried hard to do the same thing Jenna did,but I couldn’t.This is what she told me to do:
First,she told me to do a swizul. She said it’s like doing a figure eight.Then, once I got the hang of the swizuls, Jenna told me to do S’es. She told me that it was like swiming in an S line, except you are not in the water, but your arms are like you are swimming. While I was doing it, I saw my brother and my dad. I really wanted to show them that I am a great skater.So I took a deep breath. The air temperature was like a freezer. I did my best to show them that if I try really hard, I can do it corectly.
After lessons, there is practice.The practice is when you do all the stuff you learned from lessons and practice them.When I did the practice I tried my hardest to do the swizuls and the S’es. While I was practicing my swizul and S’es, I fell down few times.The first time I fell down, I got angry with myself. It was like I wanted to scream out loud, it was like I wanted to quit!!
Next Sunday I was wiggiling in my seat. I was yelling in my mind ”Drive quicker! I want to go to ice-skating!” We got there, whent inside and I started to put on my ice-skates. I got on the ice and started to do what Jenna said. I thought that maybe I was improving a little bit. When lessons were done, I stared to practice. The only two new things I Iearnd were spirals and pumps. A spiral is when you lift up your leg high, and pumps are when you pump your leg back and forth, just like you are a pumping up a broken tire.

I really liked your story. I have not learned how to ice skate one time I went to to ice skating classes but i still have not learned. I think it is cool that you did not quite. I have a post that is called Never Give Up On Your Dreams you should visit my blog and read it sometime. Is it fun ice skating. Do you ever get scared because you think your going to fall.
