Lab 2 write up
Going into St.Marrys for our first lab the other day was kind of nerve racking. I was hesitant on whether the students would like the costumes my group and I wore. But after dressing up and walking in the students seemed to enjoy it. This made my nerves calm down and made me ready to start interacting with he students. My group which is name the locomotors were with the Pre-K. We read a book with them, had snack, did a little bit of coloring and participated in an activity called "pirate Ship" and "Treasure Map". I feel that the day went smooth, and the transition to one location to the other was pretty well planned. However the coloring was cut a little short since the students had to use the bathrooms to get ready for snack time. When this happen my group and I did not really know what to do next so we waited until they were finished up with snack to keep interacting with them.
While snack was going on, I left the room to start setting up the gym for the activities I had planned for them. It was fun knowing that I was in charge and it was an activity I could change and make it age appropriate for the class. Getting the equipment out and setting up made me realize that this is something I would love doing day in and out.
One thing that I would have done better when I was teaching is that I was talking a little too fast. This in turn can caused students to miss an important step and may cause a injury. Also I when I line students up to go to another location I will have them stand on a straight line in the gym and not just say “Stand in a straight line behind one another”. The visual line on the gym will help them get organized better and faster and be a more efficient way to get the students rolling and not wasting time in transition.
