Monday Funday at St. Mary's
Lab 3 at St. Mary's my group worked with the Pre-K group. This group turned out to be the easiest to work with because they were so excited to play almost anything. As long as we were energetic they were ready to play. They had great big imaginations and were not hesitant to share any story they could think up with us. It was nice enough to go outside and play and this got the day started off well. Immediately they would come up to us and let us know what game we were going to play with them and they were ready to go. The popular game with the Pre-K group was tag and they could play forever.
This week we were focusing on some more locomotor movements. The Pre-K group could not perform all the movements like the older students. The best one they could do well was run. Their hops were alright but will improve as they get older and better control over their bodies. The best runner I noticed was a boy Paul. He was a good runner and loved to show everyone he could his running abilities. When we went back inside we had the students try some new movements while navigating a course we set up for them. Their movements were not at a mature level yet but they tried as hard as they could anyway. Working with the Pre-K group was a great experience for Lab-3 and I hope to work with them again.
