Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge: Day 15 of 31
CLASSROOM SLICE OF LIFE STORY CHALLENGE: DAY 15 OF 31
Welcome to Day 15!
For some of you, March may mean testing time. It might be hard to believe, but taking the test is actually something quite wonderful to write about. There are so many moments to slow down and write about in great detail, from the way you may feel at the beginning (nervous!) to the way you feel at the end (relieved!). Here’s how Isabel felt at the end of one such testing day:
My hands were trembling. Sweat was beading on the back of my neck. Butterflies were fluttering in my stomach and my head wouldn’t stop pounding. I couldn’t stop thinking about what was going to happen when I opened that booklet. A million questions were thundering in my mind. What if I didn’t know any of the answers? What if I couldn’t understand anything? What if I run out of time? All of these questions had answers, and none of them were pretty. Mrs. D. started handing out the booklets. Would I do well? I guess I would find out pretty soon…
I followed the rest of her instructions in a daze. Copy the SMID number. Bubble in the test form. Listen to the instructions. Finally, she said,
“Open your answer folder to page 2 and your test booklet to page 5. You may begin”. It had started…
I skimmed the instructions, and read what was being asked of me. I realized that I had nothing to worry about; I understood everything just fine! Because of this experience, I learned that I shouldn’t over-worry about upcoming events. I should realize that whatever was going to happen, would happen. It’s all “destiny”. And I now know that in the end, everything will turn out just fine.
