Last Day at St. Mary's

It was our last week at St. Mary's and it came to an end with parachute games. Through this experience I have become a lot closer to all of the students at St. Mary's, and it has helped me grow as a future teacher. A lot of the younger students were excited to play with the parachute. I feel that their favorite games were the ones where they got to hide under the parachute or run under it. Throughout our last day we learned part of a dance called "Move You're Body" by Beyonce. Many of the childeren were to tired at the end to dance and decided that they wanted to sit, what we found out the next day in class is that we would be performing this at pool side. It was really exciting to be a part of something that was so fun. We came together as physical education majors and made a great video. Its sad to see our time at St. Marys end it was a quick semester but I want to give thanks to everyone at St. Mary's!

Happy Easter!

It was Easter this week at St. Mary's! The kids all seemed to be on sugar-highs after coming back from a week off and being full of all the candy that the easter bunny had brought to them in their easter baskets. We got them started with some skill assessments, having them show us their dribbleing and kicking skills. We had to modify some of games so that we could actually see them in a circle where they werent moving around. We then got to travel outside to the playground and play with them, its a different experience outside. They seem to keep to each other in the gym, but when they go outside they like to chase you around, play tag, and hid in the playground. It is a place for them to let lose when they go outside.
