Lab Number Five

For the last day we were in the cafeteria. We did an easter theme and had the kids color eggs then played pin the egg on the poster. Then we had egg races with spoons and the kids like that too. We had them do different variations such as use only left hands, use both hands with an egg in both on the spoon, and we had them do it backwards.

In the past four labs we presented various activities for the students at St. Mary’s. These were mostly motor skills and for each activity we made sure that it was safe and no one would get hurt. We also tried to make the games as fun as possible so that as many students as possible were participating. Our super hero day was very good because for our group everyone brought props and had a storyline, and from then on out we did the same thing to make sure everyone participated. In being in the gym we tried to use as much space as possible and help students with their skills. They were mostly easy, some included fundamentals such as throwing, kicking, reading even to help the students develop.

Some limitations that were included were only to see the certain motor skills of the children being evaluated. For example, we had to slow down the routine for that one student and allow them to go maybe more times than the other students. Some of the other students would be waiting in line wanting to go, but because we needed to evaluate them, other students were left waiting sometimes. What we eventually started doing was pulling the kids we were evaluation to the side and allowing them to do the skills and not interrupt the other kids.
