Why: Breath Control, Movement and FUN!
How: Set the slide in a way that keeps the class moving in a circular manner to and from.
FOR MORE ADVANCED STUDENTS; Allow students to monkey walk to the slide, encourage them to climb out (elbow, elbow, belly and knee) and make their way to the slide. Assist them with climbing up the slide but make it as independent as possible. Allow parent to cue 1-2-3 and have them slide in and submerge.
Note; We DO NOT allow children to go down this slide head first as it is similar to a playground slide and we do not want to encourage this practice outside of the pool. Also, there are many ways to utilize the big slide and this video only shows a couple. Do what works best for you and your class.
