Posting from the Pool
There are 7 kids in the class and all look to be about 6-8 years old. This is level three-Kam said he feels nervous tonight because they'll be diving. His teacher is rewarding good listening by allowing jumps in the pool at the end of class.
This week, they are on the lap side of the pool. Kam just waved...maybe his nerves have calmed a little. He's done level 3 before-he says this year, he's going to pass. What a difference a year makes.
Last year, he was still afraid to put his face in the water and I can already see by watching tonight that he's past that. He "FAIL"ed last year big time! After reading Teach Like a Pirate, I learned too, FAIL means a First Attempt in Learning-hopefully this year level 3 will be a full SAIL (second attempt in learning) success!
