Artifact: PED 201 Motor Development Lab Reflection and Observation

The link above brings you to a reflection from the third lab I attended at St. Mary’s in Cortland. The labs I attended were on Monday’s from 3:00-5:00, and I presented different games to the students, and I also observed different motor skills by watching the students play. In this lab reflection, I reflect on the abilities of the students to perform the skills that they needed to execute to be successful in the games we played. I also state some strategies I have found to work well when trying to connect with the students. I have found that I need to be very enthusiastic, loud, and a huge key is to get the kids moving as soon as possible, and with as little breaks in the action as possible. This artifact also includes an assessment sheet. I assessed two students on their abilities to perform a leap, a horizontal jump, and a slide successfully. The two students who were assessed were a male and female student.
