Welcome to class!
In today’s class, we’re going to learn some important safety rules for swimming. These rules are like our swimming superheroes, keeping us safe in the water!
Safety Rules of Swimming
- Always Swim with an Adult:
We should never swim alone. Always have a grown-up or lifeguard watching over us.
- Stay in Shallow Water if You Can’t Swim:
If we’re still learning to swim, we should stay in the shallow water where we can touch the bottom.
- No Running Near the Pool:
Running near the pool can be slippery. We walk slowly and carefully.
- Know Your Limits:
We should never go too deep or too far from the shore or the pool edge. Stay where you feel safe.
- No Pushing or Rough Play:
Playing rough in the water can be dangerous. We should play gently and have fun without pushing.
- Floaties and Life Jackets are Our Friends:
If we’re not very confident in the water, we can use floaties or life jackets to help us stay afloat.
- Be Cautious Near Open Water:
If we’re swimming in a lake or the ocean, we should be extra careful. There might be strong currents.
- Listen to Lifeguards and Grown-Ups:
We should always listen to what lifeguards or grown-ups tell us. They’re there to keep us safe!
- No Diving in Shallow Water:
We should only dive where it’s deep enough, like the deep end of a pool. No diving in the shallow areas!
- Exit Water During Thunderstorms:
If we hear thunder or see lightning, it’s time to get out of the water and stay safe on land.
These rules are like our swimming guardians, making sure we have a wonderful time in the water while staying safe!
Now you know the important safety rules of swimming. Always follow these rules, and you’ll be a responsible and safe swimmer!
