Kim Is Kinesthetic, Part 1
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Sue groaned, "Ohhhh, we have phys. ed. next period."
 
2     "I love P.E.," her friend Kim said. "It's my favorite class."
 
3     "That's ‘cause you're a star athlete," Sue said. "No wonder you do so well in gym class. You're good at every sport."
 
4     "I wish I was good at other subjects," Kim said. "My mom said if I don't get my grades up, I won't be playing softball this spring. I'm really trying, but I just don't seem to get it. And I hate sitting in class all that time. I need to get up and move. Maybe there's something wrong with me."
 
5     "Maybe you should go to the Learning Center," Sue told Kim. "I'll bet they can help you with your school subjects. It's an okay place; I've been there a couple of times."
 
6     "You, Miss Straight-A Student?" Kim teased.
 
7     Sue chuckled. "Yeah, but they couldn't help me learn how to dribble a basketball," she joked. "It's only for academic subjects. But seriously, Mr. Ellis is great; he knows all kinds of ways to help kids learn. If you want, I'll go with you after school and introduce you to him."
 
8     "If you really think it will help," Kim said. "I'm willing to try anything so I can play softball."
 
9     Sue met Kim at her locker after last period. They walked to the Learning Center. Sue introduced Kim to Mr. Ellis. "This is my friend, Miss Star Athlete. Her real name is Kim. She's really good at sports. She's got an A in PE, but she's having trouble with her other classes."
