The Deep End

I've come to the conclusion that in the ocean that is our special ed Math class, some our kids are starting to drown. This is in spite of the fact that there are three of us "lifeguards" for 15 "swimmers!" The pace/set-up we have currently is really great for some kids, obviously. They are frolicking in the seaspray, hopping on boogie boards, and splashing up a storm. Others simply get caught up in waves that pull them under over and over each class period. By the time they come up, sputtering for air, everyone else is already lying on the beach, catching some rays! We even have a few that, upon packing up the beach bags, we find still trying to put on their swimsuits and looking for their fins and goggles! I think we need to get them over to the shallow area until they learn how to swim better! Starting on Monday, I'll be working with a handful of kids on dry land, with the hope of one day "diving in" again. Who knows? Maybe in time, with my expert tutelege, my little guppies will be aquatic protegies! (A girl has to have a goal!)
