Determination

My theme of my life is about Determination for I have learned to complete a goal you must give some effort. Along with Determination, I have learned to try your best.

The Plot

At the start of Third Grade, we were given these multiplication tests that would test our abilities to multiply a certain number starting at 2. Once we completed the 10th multiplication test we would go onto to division. I got to about the 6th test in the multiplication series then I started failing over and over again. I finally decided to actually study for the tests. After studying and learning various tricks for multiplication I finally got a better score! I recall moving into the 7th division test before we stopped doing the tests.

Characters

Myself

The story features me of course because this is the theme of my life. In third grade, I was fairly introverted. During that time, I was not the most astute student in the class, in fact I still am, but I was moderately intelligent.

The Teacher

The teacher whom is a main character gave me the test that caused the entire story. She was somewhat stern, but not enough to yell at a student for whispering to another.

Settings

The 3rd Grade Classroom

The main setting of the story takes place in the 3rd Grade classroom. The classroom was the average size for a classroom, it was nothing special. It has what you would expect from a third grade classroom, educational posters, standard desks and chairs.

Home

In this setting, I studied for the math tests. I usually studied and had a snack right after I got home. I'd often study until about 4 and then resume studying at around 7 or 8.
