Group Skit Project !!!

The Motor Development group project was a success. The Shimney Crickets created a music video associating 50 cent’s original rap “Disco Inferno” and altering it with our own lyrics that were relative to an infant’s motor development.  The group each played a vital role and it could not be done without everyone’s hard work and ideas. There is a clip below, don’t hesitate to post a comment.

Thank You St. Mary's !!!

The Students at SUNY Cortland would like to thank the faculty staff and the students of St. Mary’s school for giving us an opportunity to work with them. Personally, I have learned so much in such little time and look forward to continuing to work with St. Mary’s. This experience is the true meaning of people helping other people.

Lab 4: A Dinosaur Roar!

This week at St. Mary’s school had the Cortland students roaring for more. We concentrated on the hit TV series Dinosaur Train and associated it into our activities that were presented to the St. Mary’s students. The assessments of the St. Mary’s students continued with evaluating their throwing and catching techniques. The Shiminey Cricket’s finished the day with the popular wiggle’s dance, a St. Mary’s huddle for a shout out to Dinosaur Train, and created and provided posters for the 1-5k run that will be taking place at St. Mary’s school this Saturday at 8 o’clock in the morning. Hope to see everyone there!

Lab 3: Effective Teaching Strategies

YEE HAA!!! This week’s theme had St. Mary and Cortland students experiencing western civilization. The cowboy’s and cowgirl’s of Cortland associated games, activities, and the Cotton Eye Joe dance with western civilization. Our groups continue to concentrate on assessing the students of St. Mary’s with motor skills such as a leap, horizontal jump, and a slide. Teaching strategies helped us to grab the attention of St. Mary’s students as well as help successfully accomplish the activities and games prepared for the students without confusion or disinterest. The expressions on the student’s faces were memorable and everyone had a great and fun experience.
