Since our in-the-pool swimming lessons are on hold at this time, we have developed an at-home Fish Out Of Water Journey for you and your children. Over the next several weeks, we will share adventures that will enable your children to continue to develop their “Turtle In Training” skills and be better prepared when they return to the pool.
Turtles are animals that thrive on the land and in the water. They are able to find balance and are truly comfortable in both environments.
At FLOW, we have identified 3 foundational skills that are integral to “True Comfort” on land and in the water. Since “land” is our most familiar environment, we will first focus on teaching these skills on land. Once the children learn these skills on land, we will teach them how to adapt these skills to the water environment at home.
We will start our Fish Out Of Water Journey by developing the 3 foundational skills:
We have provided a Turtle in Training Adventure Guide as a map of what to expect on your Journey. For PDF printable version, please click here: Adventure Guide PDF
As you complete each Adventure, please log your discoveries in our: Turtle In Training Adventure Discovery Log.
Connection & Further Exploration Opportunity
After each Adventure, we will offer an interactive “Exploration Connection” Zoom (video-conferencing) call, where children can interact with FLOW Adventure Guides and Smile Makers as they further explore skills in more detail.
Completion of Journey Reward
Each student who completes the guide will be given a special Turtles in Training certificate and will be eligible for a prize when our “in-the-pool” lessons resume. Enjoy!
