As our second lab week at St. Mary’s has come and gone, many of us that may have struggled with the first week have started to find our voice. Many of us started to really control the group instead of having them run amuck. As teachers we will constantly be looking to break through to our students and really peak their interest about physical activity, and St. Mary’s is no different. This week I had a young boy tell me “playing the college kid games sucks” and through talking to him I was able to redirect that negative energy and had him help me to design an activity that he would love to play. Getting over the initial shock of the school was easy, now it’s time for us to start fine tuning our skills and get these kids to count down the days until we come back. They will do this, because we are so much fun and have original exciting activities that they will want to play again and again.
