Stamina

I have a lot of stamina.

I can run long distances and stay in front of the pack.

I can jump over a ditch.

In math class, I can do all the problems.

When other kids get stuck or have to stop, I can still keep going.

I stick to my plans, even when it gets difficult.

Thanks to all my stamina, I never have to stop. ------------------------------- Explain It

Now have your child answer a couple questions about the story:
