Today at St.Mary's our theme was christmas. I was in the special projects group so we decorated the doors to the gymnasium with our thank you collages. It was great way to show the school how much we appreciate them letting us be apart of their after school program. This was a very rewarding experiences for me. I feel so much more comfortable teaching to groups of people weather it be students or my peers. The thing I seemed to struggle with the most is making myself heard. I've been working on enunciating in a gymnasium setting and will continue to do so until I am happy with the outcome. I'm going to miss going to St.Marys every other week but it has furthered me on my path of becoming a physical educator.

Lab 4 at St. Marys ended up being on Halloween which was really exciting because a majority of our class dressed up for the occasion. In addition to dressing up we were able to prepare games that related to the halloween theme. This week I worked with pre-k. I really enjoyed this. I prepared by going out and buying the book "5 Little Pumpkins". To my surprise, as I started to read this book to the students, four of them started reading it for me without the book in their hand. These kids had actually memorized the book! They kept saying it over and over until we headed to the gym to do the next activities. One of our activities we used string and had the kids create a big spider web as a team. They did this by holding one end and then throwing the other to someone across the circle. I think they really liked this because they all seemed to stay focused on the activity. It was great!
