1. Task one: Reflection.

2. Task two: Object Control Skills Part B Worksheet.

TASK A –REFLECTION

  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?  

The games played during the previous four labs were appropriate for the different age groups.  They covered the several different skills that were needed to be tested.  It will take some more practice for me to figure out how long a game or activity should be played for.  Incorporating subjects learned in academic classes could be added to my own games and curriculums.  

2. What might be some limitations to games or activities when using them in the process of assessing motor skills?

        There are several different ways that conflict will occur when assessing certain motor skills. In order to asses certain skills you have to make sure that you isolate the certain motor movement.  It is difficult to have the kids play a game that requires them to focus on several different movements along with the actual skill tested.  For example, when testing the soccer kick you have to isolate actual shooting from dribbling the ball. It makes it difficult when you have to control the movement of the ball as you prepare to kick it in the goal.  It is a lot easier to have the ball placed down in front of the target and let the child get his or her steps.
