Pencil the Star then Mushroom
'Speedboats' - walk across pool with arms out in front, hands together - forming a V shape. Blow bubbles in the gap between the arms.
Chin on chest, eyes looking down Hug both knees to chest Curl into a little ball Back should break the surface of the water
Standing up, find a space in the pool and make a 'Star' shape - feet flat on the floor, arms and legs wide apart making an 'X' Tuck noodle under the arms keeping the curve in front and a gap between body and curve. Lean forwards so that chin is on the water and allow feet to rise up behind so that they are lying flat on their stomach. Make the 'Star' shape and hold, arms and legs still. If able to float on their front unaided, progress to pencil floats and mushroom floats. If able to accomplish all of these, ask for sequences i.e: star float to pencil float or mushroom float to star float.
