Lab on Monday 5/2

Lab six was the last lab that we had at St. Mary's. Throughout the semester I have learned a lot of different techniques for teaching children and maintaining their attention. Making sure that you provide examples of how to do different motor skills is important. Also giving children examples to follow, like saying that a student is doing a great job sitting there quietly will make other children want to follow that student. This is a great way to maintain attention in the class and help to set examples. This was a great experience and I wish that we would have spent more time at the school. Getting to know the children and provide games that they enjoyed was a great experience.

Monday Lab 4/25

During this lab we had the gym group which meant that we were the group that ran the games to assess the students. The two things being assessed were the stationary bounce and the kick. The game that I had was for the kick. I ran a game called kickball soccer, which would have been a good game for a little bit older students. I modified it to try and target it for the students but it still did not work as I had planned it to. The kick was able to be assessed though so it did work for the purpose but it was still hard for the students to understand what they had to do.
