Is 流 mountain-water painting?

About 流:
Its first part is called ‘three-drop-water’ in Chinese;  The top of its right component is changed-form of 云(clouds) and the bottom one should comes from 川 (river) which two sides symbol the banks of the river and the middle-vertical-stroke represents the water-current!

So, look at the whole word: Three streams flows; Over the head the clouds are floating in the sky and it seems that it is raining hard; The current of the river is so strong that the banks are going to be broken and the water would probably become flood!

流(liu) means ‘current’ or ‘running current’ or ‘flowing’.  ---------------Chinese people often use simple drawing to express some object. Is it funny?I hope you enjoy my explaining!

(You may also take the 川-like thing as a changed form of 水(water).  Why? The ancient form of 水 looks like cloth-like waterfall. One Chinese described cataract in this way: The great waterfall comes down from the top of the high cliff of the mountain, it seems that as if it had flied here from the heaven!

    Rubbish are treasures in the wrong position where you place them!

    Your detailed note focuses on educating toddlers instead of children of all ages!
    May I say that you are not familiar with the first hand materials on Chinese school-teaching? In class teachers and students pay too much attention to the points of knowledge and try to swallow down each word of the text without digestion, ignoring the internal logical connections among the knowledge points!
    Teachers must teach students how to think through knowledge learning!  Book knowledge is limited and useless in most case while thinking ability is the sharpness of  your brain-knife-edge that determines how clever you are for real problem-solving!
    In short words the way of thinking is more important than the fruit of brain-production (knowledge)!
    Fishing skill is more valuable than a basket of fish!
    So let children become little thinker first,then possible for a great thinker when they grow up!
