Monkey Bar Academy by #9

‘’Lily I’ve got a great idea!’’ I shrieked. We can teach Jenny and Danae how to do the bars. Keep in mind that these bars are special kind of bars ones you do flips on. Lily and I worked really hard every lunch recess to teach them everything we knew. We split up all the flips into 3 units and gave them mini tests. Then it came to the front flip switching hands. Both of our students were really struggling. No matter how many times we tried, they still couldn’t do it. Lily and I tried everything, or at least we thought we did.
Lily and I told Danae and Jenny that they wouldn’t have class that day. Meanwhile, we worked really hard to find out a way to make it easier. We found out that they just needed some self confidence. We came up with a brilliant plan. What we would do is hold their legs while they switched their hands. Then every time we saw them get better we would hold farther down on their legs. Now, let me tell you the clever part, when we saw them get really good we would raise our hands just off their legs, so it would look like we were holding them. We tried the first part of our plan and it worked like a charm.
Then came the moment of truth! I signaled Lily, to try the clever part of our plan on Jenny and it… worked! She didn’t notice a thing and did it perfectly. Same thing happened with Danae.
So I can prove that you can do anything with a self confidence and a little help from someone you trust. Lily and I never dared to share our secret with Jenny and Danae. So Shh! Don’t tell our secret!

  1. Dear monkey bar academy,
    I really
    Like that you are helping other people learn the flips, because that is exactly what good friends do! I had a lot of experience in the monkey bars last year and the year before that! I have been through this case when you can’t do the flips, and I assure you what you are doing to Danae and Jenny is something they should be very appreciative about:-)
    Love,
    Ellie m:-)

  4. Dear Monkey Bar Academy,

    I LOVED your story!
    It was really descriptive, and I think that Danae and Jenny really mustered some confidence, but don’t worry, I won’t tell your secret! 😀
    You are also teaching me during recess, and you are AMAZING coaches! I can’t wait to come back from the Christmas holidays so that I can continue to learn! You are such efficient teachers, there hasn’t been any injuries! Good job!
    You take great care and are really efficient! You’re patient, and super kind!

    Your friend,

  5. Dear Monkey Bar Academy,
    You are doing a really good job with the monkey bars.
    You should think of more tricks to help people with their flips.
    It is true that you are really good coaches and that many people have learned lots of flips from you.

    Your friend,

    Anna K. 😀
