Happy Halloween St. Mary's (Halloween lab 4)!!!!!


Today was a great time at St. Mary's, i was able to observe my peers teaching and watching the children participate in a variety of games. I found that many of the students felt that they could have used more variations in their games that they were teaching, all in all most people thought that their game went well and that the children understood their directions. Some teaching techniques that i observed was that many students used loud and clear voices when they presented their games, and Bree even mentioned that she had used a whistle and it really drew the children at St. Mary's attention. The use of the wistle really made the students more attentive and willing to participate. I was able to teach a Halloween song to the students and they really had a lot of fun with that as well as close the lab today with a "Happy Halloween St. Mary's" cheer. I was able to play with the children in the gymnasium, i was giving rides on the scooters, and all of the children thought that was great, i have to say, my arms are pretty tired though pulling them around. All in all lab today went really well and like always, i as well as the children had a blast with today's lab. I felt that all of our students who taught games and presented an activity did very well and had a lot of fun.

  1. It's good to see that you're learning from this experience. It's important to remember to have a loud voice and to have a whistle or signal for attention. You have improved since the beginning, so keep it up.
