Superheroes Stop In!!!

This week in lab it was superhero week. I think the kids just loved us all this week because we all dressed up as superheroes. My group was the first group to go today and i feel it went really well compared to the last time we had to go first. This time we played a quick tag game to get their attention and try and tire them out a little so they would listen better. After we played the tag game and calmed them down we played with the parachute, which the kids LOVED! After playing several parachute games like, popcorn, air conditioner, shark, and just making waves we went down to the cafeteria and worked on fine motor skills. The kids played with legos and built houses, space ships, and boats. They absolutely love building space ships with us, that's all they could talk about for the entire time we were down there. Every two seconds was them saying "look at my ship, isn't it cool". This lab just went great i feel i couldn't be any happier knowing that we went out with a bang for our last lab of the semester. I'm very lucky to be able to work with kids from the school and actually get to do hands on work, it definitely helps out a lot.

Toy Story Week

This week at lab my group was in charge of special projects. This means that we basically help out the school by organizing their closets that hold all their equipment. We also are in charge of the final game, song, and cheer. We didn't get to our game but we did do our song and cheer. The song we chose to do was the chicken dance song. We changed the lyrics to involve the toy story theme, which i thought went over pretty well. The only problem that i saw was that the song was to fast so the beginning was a little rough, but once we got through the first verse it went really well. Our cheer was "to infinity and behind", i feel the kids enjoyed that cheer as well. All and all i think this might have been one of our best labs. Can't wait for the next lab, i have a feel it is going to be a great one.

Easter Lab

This lab went very well i thought. The kids seemed to want to try our activities and give them a chance. I feel my game went pretty good it definitely good have gone better but in the end i think it was a success. As the labs go bye i seem to learn a lot more information on how to become a great physical educator. There's only two labs left and i think they will both be a success because we all now have seen the kids at their worst and their best so we know how to adapt to their personalities.
