St. Mary's Lab 1

We had our first day at St. Mary's school. This certainly was an experience. Although we did not go into the day as the teachers our group was able to comprehend was is expected from us this semester. The TA's did a great job starting off the day; everybody was participating and having a good time. The games that were played had a focus on certain motor skills; some kids had more developed skills than others. The older students were focused and determined to win, while the younger students were flailing their limbs all over the place but still having a good time running around with their friends. As the day went on the groups participating in the TA’s activities got smaller and smaller. As you look around the room the children have dispersed themselves amongst various activities with their peers. The older boys were mainly playing basketball and knock out. The older girls were doing activities such as hula hooping or tag or coloring while they could talk to their friends about their day. Each of the kids has a story to tell… always. The youngsters liked to stick around  with all the TA’s and new student teachers and play more interactive games. The younger boys liked to sped time with the male Student teachers because they liked to relate, same with girls the younger girl spent most of their  time with  a female student teacher before running  off with their friends.  We learned that our main focus is to try to keep  the students participating together as much as  possible. With that goal and focus I think this is going to be a fun semester working with St. Mary’s school students. We are all there to have a good time.
