1. Task one: Reflection.
2. Task two: Object Control Skills Part B Worksheet.
1. Consider the activities/games that you have utilized so far during the past four labs. Were they appropriate for the students at St. Mary’s? Why or why not?
Overall I feel that I did instruct games to the children that were appropriate to all. But, I feel that I have improved towards the end on creating games that are more appropriate for the age group that I am dealing with. Also, I understand the children better now and this has allowed me to do activities that are more fun and exciting. At the beginning the first game I performed was fun for the children, but I felt it was not the best because a lot of the children were not physically active throughout. They were all attentive and focused on the activity, but playing a variation of “toss the bacon” caused many to be watching and waiting for their number to be called. Lastly, I believe that I have improved on creating games and activities that will allow the teacher to assess the children’s motor skills along with be fun and exciting for the children.
2. What might be some limitations to games or activities when using them in the process of assessing motor skills?
When assessing motor skills it is important that the environment be proper for the child for whatever is being assessed. If a child is being assessed on static kicking, they should not be in a place where the floor is slanted. Another important limitation is games that do not allow the students to be assessed properly due to the nature. For example, if the children are not performing the motor skill the way they should be because it isn’t necessary while playing. Lastly, this games main focus must be on performing the skill correctly, because if not the child will not be motivated to perform it to his/her highest capabilities, making the results irrelevant.
