First, I want to give a BIG thank you to our gym teacher Ms. A. She organized this AMAZING opportunity for the kiddos at our school. With the Y being so close I can't believe we didn't do this sooner!!
The kids spent their gym time at the Y...IN THE POOL!! I will say, I think we set record times in how fast kids could get ready to swim and then get ready to head back to school.
They practiced kicking (trying to splash me of course), floating, swimming, making fish faces, bubbles, and they even had some free play. I LOVED seeing the initial fear in some and then the exhilaration as they became more confident.
Here are some pics.
