A Christmas Sensation @ St. Mary's

What a last day at St. Mary's. I have had so much fun going there, and learned so much what a great experience.  Today was a Christmas theme so we dressed up like santas and elfs it was a blast.  The best part about today was we got out the parachuit and the kids loved it.  They were screa,ing going crazy yelling having a great time.  We played some Christmas themed games with the parachuit and the kids got to go under it and had such big smiles on there faces.  That is the best feeling making younger kids smile and them having fun, thats what its all about.

This was by far the best after school we had at St Mary's.  It was Halloween theme and we dressed up, it was great.  I dressed up as a clown, and it was a hit.  The kids loved my clown costume, kept saying "HEY CLOWN" the smiles on their faces were priceless.  I was able to read three books to the pre-k and they loved my costume.  I read them a book about whitches and ghostes, and i read them two books on pumpkins.  The pre-k were all amped up, they were the most energetic group i have been with so far at St Mary's.  They are a blast though they dont care what game it is they just wanna run around and play.  So i made it simple i did a tag game with them pretending to be on brooms i had them gallop they were laughing and yelling having a great time.  The motor development that were working was throwing and catching, and we observed two students on how they did.  The kids were doing a decent job with it dont have all themechanics down yet.  My favorite part of the day was at the end we were teaching the kids the Thriller dance by Micheal Jackson it was so fun watching them do it they had such big smiles on their faces, and thats what i try to accomplish when i am there making sure the kids are having fun and getting exercise.

Super Hero Day! @ St Mary's

What another great day at St Mary's.  Are theme this week was super hero week.  I dressed as a super hero and the kids were so energetic.  I had them play a super hero game which went well.  I had three different super hero pictures that each represented a motor movement and the kids loved it.  They were screaming and yelling it was great to see them smiling.  The motor movements we were introducing were horizontal jumping, leaping, and sliding.  The kids had the most trouble with the leaping.  They were running not really leaping.  They were doing a great job with the sliding.  It was a great day at St Mary's and i cant wait for the next time...

Pirates Day at St Mary's

In lab 2 at St Mary's we did a Pirate theme day which was awesome.  Some of us were dressed like pirates.  The motor movements that we were trying to implement this week was running, galloping, and hopping.  At lab Mr. yang gave us two children to observe theses motor movements, to see if they were perfoming them correctly.  They wre doing the motor skills correctly for the most part.  Today my job was to clean out the equipment room, which wasnt too bad considering the room wasnt to messy to begin with.  I just put the boxes in order and mad it a little neater.  At the end of the day i got to lead the kids to a song whcih was awesome. My song was called If Your A Pirate and You know It.  The kids loved it and they were doing the hand motions and sining it was a great day at St Mary's

Chapter 1

After looking through chapter one i look back at when i was in pe at my high school thats not how i want to teach pe.  At my high school we played different games which was good, but we didnt learn how to play they would go over the rules and we would play the game.  I was ok with that because i could just start playing and get the hang of it as i play but that wasnt the case for over half the class when i look back.  A lot of the kids didnt know all the fundamentals, and we should have learned fundamentals of the games, do drills, then progress into the game so its fun for everyone.  Doing this it will make it fun for a lot more of the students, and when students are having fun they become more active which is what we are looking for.  I dont want pe to be the class that everyone hates going to, i want to become one of the best pe teachers.
