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

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.

I had no idea what to expect for this class, I was nervous and excited. I was really relieved when i met my professor Mr. Yang, and he is great its going to be a great year. He also showed us around the parkcenter which helped, because i am a transfer student. I look forward to this class and going to teach younger kids.

As a physical education major i think that its good for kids to learn as many sports as they can, open them up too many different sports. Although its dangerous using sticks and bats you can make it so its not dangerous. Examples would be you dont have to play against eachother where someone can get hit with a hockey stick, or you can play floor hocky with foam sticks. In elementary school we used foam hocky sticks, so it didnt hurt if you did get hit. You could also wear extra prtection to prevent more injuries. Also you can have targets at the wall instead of having goalies so a kid isnt stuck in goal, it gives everyone a chance to run around and participate and not get stuck standing in goal. I think if you introduce young children in to as many different sports as possible they can become more intersted and want to play them which can lead to more fitness.

Lab 1 First Day
What a first day it was at St Mary’s was awesome. I did not know what to really expect, for some reason i was nervous idk why these kids are 3-7 years old they are kids i just have to be myself, which i did once i got comfortable. These kids are great they have so much energy in them. When Ben who was great to watch and learn from set up a tag game they were so excited. Then we got to play with the kids which was great, i got to play on the playground with the kids and play house in the gym. I notice the kids like to play tag with you and have them chase you. I also notice that some of there motor developments were good the could climb ladder, swing on the hoops, and sliding down poles. They all had big smiles and were exercising which is what it is all about. I hope next lab will just as good if not better and work on my teaching skills to become am excallant physical education teacher.
