Continuing the theme of the trip to the sea, I want to tell you how I planned to acquaint the child with so much water, and how it actually happened. Be that as it may, the impressions of what he saw in a child are still fresh.
Big pedagogical plans
Since I am a physical education teacher by my second education, I planned to introduce the child to the sea according to science, as we were taught at the institute. At first, walk along the shoals, slap handles. Then go deeper and sit down, holding hands and not dipping.
After that, it is recommended to dive down the neck and blow on some water. And only then try to dive. I will not say that I did not succeed at all in bringing this plan to life, but this life always makes its own adjustments.
First of all, before the sea we happened to visit the river. Not too big, green and cool. But the initial stage of the pedagogical plan was carried out: we wandered a lot in the water, and then threw pebbles into the water.
Most of all, my daughter liked standing in the water to watch the ripples on her surface: Mom, I am swimming in the sea! Considering that the child had not seen such a quantity of water before, it was not surprising to be identified.
And here is the sea
Despite the fact that the daughter persistently called the sea a river, the delight was simply indescribable. The sea is shallow there, the waves were small, but this was enough to cover the child with its head in the figurative sense of the word. As expected, we first went into the water somewhere knee-deep.
And then behind each wave that rolled on my daughter, she published such a neigh that I had never heard from her before. Not a squeak, not an enthusiastic cry, namely the neighing of a tiny foal. And so it went on for ten minutes without a break. If she had not frozen, and I would not have dragged her out of the water, she would probably have stood and bellowed till I fell.
By the way, we are not particularly lucky with the temperature. Still, the middle of September, the wind was cool. Despite the fact that I myself have not seen the sea for five years, I didn’t want to climb at all. What can not be said about the child.
I didn’t have to teach her to squat a little – she guessed it herself and did it with great pleasure. I also liked to expose the ass under the waves. Nothing was written about this in the textbooks, but as an adult I always liked to do that. In general, she taught nonsense.
But she was afraid to go deeper, because I did not insist. However, when the information was sounded that we were once again buying up and going back, she, fearing, went after the uncle a little further from the coast.
There, my uncle polished me, ”she explained later, looking at the photographs at home. At home, for two weeks in a row, I only heard talk of the sea. Every day I will go there, there is fun, mom, we went to the sea tomorrow, etc.
To tell the truth, I knew that the child would be delighted, but did not think that in such a rampant one. I think it’s good that we got out right now, when we are almost five. If they had got out earlier, there would have been no such awareness of the situation. But later, these are not such enchanting emotions.
And how successfully did you get to know the sea?
