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?  

  All of the games that I chose to do at St. Marys were appropriate for the students. The games were not hard to understand for them and or the task was not to difficult. The games also gave them the ability to perform the task to their highest ability and also allowed them to climb the ladder of difficulty during the game if they want to.

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

 One thing that I noticed when we were assessing the students the ones that we were specifically looking at would tend to stay away from that side of the gym. When the TA’s would bring them to the other side of the gym to have us assess them they would become shy and not want to to the activity. So I think the best way to assess them would be to have a drill set up for that skill but make a game out of it. Or have the class broke up into groups so that you can keep a eye on a specific group that you want to assess. Also when having the kids playing a game they want to have fun. They don't really want to work on skills.
