Sister Bear dislikes gym class so much that she takes advantage of a minor injury and sits on the sidelines instead.
  SABC | May 26, 2012 |
In this story, Sister complains about having to exercise at school. She loves all the other aspects of school but gym is the only one that she hates. So one day as Sister was getting off the bus, she just so happens to twist her ankle. After a while it wasn't hurting all that bad, but Sister milked it for all that she could so that she wouldn't have to exercise. Even after her ankle was fine, she still sat out of gym. One day at recess, a soccer ball made its way over to Sister and she kicked it hard and with the foot that had the sore ankle. Needless to say, her gym teacher saw it and she pretty much confessed. Mama Bear told Sister that she should enjoy gym because it helps you physically. Once Sister actually started to enjoy gym, the gym teacher let her lead some of the exercises. The only exercise that she still didn't end up liking was the duck walk. I must say that I've never done anything like this to get out of gym. I always liked gym even when I would get hurt I would always try to get back out there and play. But in my gym class, we played more games than just exercising. So I can understand why Sister didn't like gym

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375811257, Paperback)

As far as Sister Bear is concerned, there’s a whole lot to like about school—her classmates, her teacher, and even the schoolwork. If it weren’t for gym class, things would be perfect. All those jumping jacks and deep knee bends make Sister hot, sweaty, and sore. But when a slight twist of fate gives her the chance to sit on the sidelines, will Sister stretch the truth instead of her arms?
