My Professional Online Portfilio

I am very excited to be featuring an online portfolio to my repertoire. This will only help me stand out from the outstanding number of Physical Education majors around the country when going for a job interview. I am thankful that Professor Yang is so invested in our success and always making us try our hardest and get that extra step up on some of our competition out in the work field. So hopefully this along with many other things will help me get to where I want to be in the future.

St. Mary's Lab 3 Western Theme

At this weeks Lab 3 at St. Marys my group the Hopscotch Heroes were the gym group again so we got to teach the children our games with a western theme. We dressed up as cowboys and cowgirls, and in my opinion I thought everybody looked great and the costumes were awesome. While teaching my game called Sherrifs and Deputies I used some different techniques that I hadent used in previous labs. I projected my voice showing the children that I was the teacher and that they should listen to me, another technique that I used was to not suggest the game that we were going to play but rather tell the students that we were playing sherrifs and deputies. By doing both of these differently thet students payed attention and in turn cooperated with me and my game a lot better. The kids were able to perform the skills of leaping, horizontal jumps, and sliding pretty well, but the leap started to turn into a run not a leap. This was a fun lab and I enjoyed working with the kids a great deal in Mondays lab!

St. Marys Lab 2

During this weeks lab, Lab 2, my group the Hopscotch Heroes was the gym group so we were the ones teaching the students a game and the rest of the class was too evaluate two students and how they performed three locomotor skills. Running, Galloping, and Hopping were these skills that the students had to perform, many of the students had some trouble doing the galloping and hopping the running wasnt difficult because many students are able to perform that skill at an early age. I had a good time dressing up as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the lab and I believe that the kids had a great time because they saw us in costume and to my surprise they knew a lot about the Ninja Turtles. I think that the students had a great time and got a good workout when we taught them this week and I am looking forward to teaching them more games and having fun doing it!
