Day Two: Teaching At Saint Mary's!!!

What an exciting day two teaching day!!! Today was the first day that everyone was able to come up with an activity for the children after school to play.  Some games turned out, others didn't, it was fun though watching specific children and seeing if they could master the different locomotive skills, such as hoping, galloping and running.  The difference in ages and gender really showed during some of the activities that we had them doing.  As a physical education teacher it is our job to watch for the developing patterns in young children, it helps us in the long run to know what and what not to work on.  The younger the child the more locomotive work they need, the older the more motor and cognitive thinking they need.  I can't wait to see them in a couple weeks!

  1. One of the best lessons learned while teaching is finding out what does not work; that leaves room for adjusting and tweaking the lesson for next time to be even better! Keep having fun with the kidlets!
