As Miss Murray teaches the class gymnastics for physical education in the class, Little Bill becomes frustrated when it comes time for the students to practice forward rolls since he hasn't been able to do one successfully. Miss Murray suggests that Little Bill shouldn't give up and work on the exercise at home. In the back yard, Little Bill asks Alice the Great for help, but she recommends April help her brother because she's younger. April gives Little Bill the idea of imagining he's a round item to give him a better idea of how to bend properly for the exercise; Little Bill pictures his sister's basketball and Elephant's rolling ball, then tries the somersault, successfully finishing the roll. The next day, during gym class, Little Bill is the first one to volunteer so he can show Miss Murray that he can do it.
