I will get a snowboard and a helmet and special boots. The boots go on my feet. The helmet goes on my head. The board I will carry outside with me.
Then Now it is time to go outside. My instructor will go with me and keep me safe. I will put my feet with the boots on into the snowboard. The snowboard will slide on the snow. This might feel very different for me. My instructor will teach me to slide, turn, and stop. It is o.k. if I fall a lot. Snow is slippery, but fun.
