Lab 2: Learning to Observe and Assess

The second week at St. Mary’s school had the Cortland students experiencing how to affectively assess the children using the motor skills that were associated with the activities and games provided by our groups. Although at times it was difficult to observe the students due to the excitement they had over the games and activities, most of the motor tasks that were performed by the St. Mary’s students were accomplished successfully. One of the most common problems noticed of the observing of the students was not being able to know whether or not they could use both the dominant and non-dominant limbs while performing the motor tasks. The best experience I had with this lab was being able to dress up as a cartoon character and see the curiosity as well as the ambition to learn.
