Today was day number two at St. Marys working with the kids. I actually really enjoyed today working with the kids. I have always worked with kids and when i tend to play with them i get very creative and talk a lot with them. Today we play some activities with the kids. We ran many games with them up in the gym. I noticed having my whistle was a great way of communicating with the kids as well. Many of them when you told them to run or walk or jump they would do the complete oppsoite and not register exactly what locomotor movement it was they should have been doing. The kids really seemed to enjoy scooter soccer. We played tag games and many other games. I tend to take over too much when i am in my group i guess because i have had a lot of experience with kids so its just natural instinct to lead actvities with the kids. I was actually suprised to see that some of the kids came up to me and said i remember you i was chasing you last week and playing with you. Overal it was a great day, but i would like to work on being a little more prepared with backup games when the ones we choose are not as fun as we thought for the kids. Im really enjoying my time with the kids at St. Mary's.
