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?
I think that many of the games were appropriate for St. Mary’s. There were some games that need to be critiqued and changed so that they are more exciting or interesting for the kids to play. We found good crafts to use in the pre-k groups that incorporated the themes, while finding games such as this week’s gym group that showed their skills in dribbling and kicking. We had to change those games so that you could see more of the skill, but other than that they were good.
2. What might be some limitations to games or activities when using them in the process of assessing motor skills?
There may be students that don’t know how to do the skill properly, so you have to stop and explain what the skill should look like and then encourage the students who aren’t sure to keep doing what they are doing right. I think it is hard to assess students in games as well because they are focused on the game and not on the skill being assess, so you need to stop them and just have them dribble in a circle like we did at St. Mary’s thMOTOR DEVELOPMENT LAB- Object Control Skills Part B
