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.
