A St. Mary's Thanksgiving

Instead of cleaning the Equipment room at St.Mary's our group helped out all around the building. We helped all the other groups and had a variety of different kids for the day. I started off in the cafeteria playing checkers. As I began the game with Justin, a young St. Mary's student, he began to cheat at the game. I was very much entertained with the way he was playing the checkers game, Bringing pieces back into the game, and jumping pieces sideways and backwards. I had to make sure Justin knew the rules of the game so next time he can play the proper way.
As I made my way upstairs into the gym, I really liked the game the kids where playing. The game consisted of the kids kicking a soccer ball around several cones, and shooting it at a net with a goalie. The kids really seemed to enjoy the game especially when the "college kids" where in net. This activity also helped show us the level of skill the children have for the kicking movement. I was very surprised with the skill level the children had with shooting and maintaing control of the ball around the cones.
Our group, "Prestige Worldwide" had to end the lab off with a song. The song we chose was the Cotton Eye Joe. We taught the kids the dance although some of them already knew the dance. The kids really loved the dance at the end and we braught the kids into the circle and on 4 we said Turkey! All together Lab 5 was a great success!!

  1. Your group did a great job adapting because you were thrown places where you didn't know what was happening. Physical Education involves a lot of adapting so students can stay interested.
