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?  

        My games were appropriate for the students, the games that I have played so far have worked and I haven’t had to make many changes to my original games. I will say that I have realized they don’t want tag games and they want to play competitive games which is really good, I just need to find a way to make it so every child has an opportunity to equally play whether or not they are good at the game. I hope that I can find games that will be a lot of fun for them and will also be productive in there motor development

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

        When I’m using a game or activity to access motor skills, I have to create a game that will get everyone to perform the motor skill, it has to be something that is competitive that will require to try, but I cant make the game to competitive or they wont focus on the fundaments and they’ll focus to much on trying to perform it correctly. The key is to make it so its fun and everyone gets equal turns.
