Students need to learn the importance of keeping their head down until their hands reach up and securely grab the wall. If they lift the head up to look at the wall edge, before actually grabbing it, the young student (up to about 3), is likely going to end up going backward…away from the edge.
We must constantly experience the challenge of grabbing the wall…. until they figure out the importance of keeping the face in the water, until they “LAND”. This Peek-A-Boo game really helped 26 month old Taylor.
