Rudimentary Movement in Action

Our assignment was to create a skit about a chapter in our class text. We choose a chapter on rudimentary movement and in this we should a childs progression "scooting" all the way up to "walking". I performed this skit with the group I have been working with through my lab all year and it was interesting. We each had some talent to bring to the skit and also I think became a little more comfortable around each other through this experience. Myself, I am a very outgoing person and don't really mind embarresing myself esecially if it is for a good grade and two ladies Jackie and Jen put a great effort into this with lyrics and just a good attitude which made it run smooth. There is nothing better then learning while having fun and I believe that was the main goal of this activity. Here is the link to this greatt performance along with the rest of my classmates performances.

Happy Easter at St. Mary's

Our Easter themed day turned out to be one of the best days so far at St. Mary's. Every week my classmates and I are improving on our ability to teach and assess the students, and as we improve the process is continuing to become easier and a lot more fun. I worked with the Pre-K students today and we were pressed for time but we got a chance to do a crafting activity with the students that they seemed to enjoy very much. Then we moved into the gym for some games, we actually went over our time we were supposed to stay the games were so successful. Overall each day at St. Mary's I am starting to gain a lot from and I feel it will help a lot in my future.
