Mon Feb 8th lab

hello everyone,
Today in lab i observed the pre-k students. i started out by playing with two children who were playing with farm animals, they loved their farm animals. They knew every noise that all the farm animals make. It was interesting to me because they would just make the goat and bull/cow fight the whole time, and the goat would always win. We then moved on to building a garage out of Lego's. They loved building it and did a great job. I then switched classrooms and played with three other children, and they were playing with plastic figures and all they wanted to do was to put people in jail haha. i found it very interesting because they would come up with various crimes that they committed. it was then snack time and they all went to the bathroom to wash their hands and they stand neatly against the wall when they are done. some children dunked their pretzels in their milk and got in trouble, others ate them so fast didn't even realize they had snack. it was then time to read a book i didn't read but i observed and all the children love this time, they get really excited and into the book. last we went into the gym and played tag games. they also love their tags games, they would play them all day if they were aloud to. for them to understand the concept of the game we had to use things that they knew. for example fire trucks and police cars we used for one and they loved it. this is the best way to keep their attention is to always use things they like and know.
