Lab 1 at St. Mary's School

I had a great time at St. Mary's this week. I was able to get to know a lot of new students. Two of the children I met were George and Katelyn. Jenna, my fellow Leaping Lizzards group member and I played a game of around the world with George and Katelyn. We were both very impressed with just how good both of them were at shooting. By the end of the game me and Jenna were still back at the starting point because we had both missed on a chance. George won the game and Katelyn beat Jenna and I by a large gap. I also played football with a few other children. I was very surprised with just how much energy the children have. Amanda and I got quite a workout from playing football with the children and they were still full of energy. Also I thought it was funny how one of the little boys kept calling different plays for our team. His favorite play was "you run and get open and I'll throw it to you and you score". We had a great time playing football. I also got the chance to play Pokemon Sorry, with one of the younger girls. She informed me on the different types of pokemon and which one was her favorite, which is Raichu. All in all I thought it was a great day and I looked forward to our next lab at St. Mary's.

  1. Nice start to you posts. I agree that St. Mary's will be a little suprising to you when it comes to different students skill levels and abilities. That shows how important it is to make sure your lessons have variablitly and account for some kids being good at something, or some kids being bad at something.

    I liked the energy you and your group had with the kids on the first day. Keep up the good energy because if you show the kids your getting tired out, then they will take advantage of that and run all over you.

    Last thing I want you to rememeber is to put some pictures in your posts. Yang hates naked blogs and besides, you want these posts to be as appealing as possible incase and future proffesionals check it out.
