It’s Hard to Swim Teacher’s Guide


Spend one week with Ellie in the classroom to help your students better understand what it means to be courageous, to explore and experience life with fear of failure.  In the It’s Hard to Swim Teacher’s Guide, children will build a sense of trust in their own intuition, over time learning to take notice of what feels right or wrong for them and gain the self-confidence to be brave even when fear and self-doubt are present.

This type of behavioral education, made playful, supportive and engaging, is a wonderful way to create connection in your classroom.

Examples of bravery are discussed and shared among classmates and friends, making them real and relevant.  Embracing mistakes is part of the education and students encourage each other to have fun along the way!

The following outline will help you create a classroom environment to support your theme week:  “What does it look like to be courageous?”
