Last day at St. Mary's

I am sad to say that last Wednesday was my last trip to St. Mary's for my 201 class. Unfortunately I didn't get to stay for the whole time either because I had to go to the CAR workshop. However, when I was there it was a blast playing parachute games with the kids. It reminds me of when I was their age and the parachute was my favorite thing to do in class. As soon as they saw it they were so excited, and it made me excited to show them my game and play it with them. I hope to go back to St. Mary's soon, it was a really great experience and I am so thankful that I got to enjoy it and learn about what it is like to work with kids!

Lab Observations

Easter Fun!!

Last week we got to play our Easter games with the students at St. Mary's. Since we had the gym group, we had to make sure our games had a lot to do with the skills that were being assessed, which were dribbling a basketball and kicking a soccer ball. It took a while for everyone to get the assessments done because one of the students who was being watched didn't want to participate in the game (which I noted in my lab observations). Other than that, it was a lot of fun playing our games with the students, and afterwards we even got to go outside which was great too. Next time is our last lab with the students at St. Mary's, so sad it's almost over!
