Pre Lab #3

The lab theme for the 3rd lab was "western." We played some very interesting games this week. I actually really enjoyed playing the games that the other people came up with. I did not get to practice mine but hopefully I will be able to run through it with my suite mates or the other members of my group.

Pre Lab #2

I got to try out my game at pre lab and it was very nice to see how it would work in a real life setting. I know now that i will have to tweak it so that it will be easier to understand. It is called "Pizza Shop" and our group is dressing up as the teenage mutant ninja turtles. Those guys love pizza so I will tell the story of them liking pizza.

First motor development lab at St. Mary's

Going into the first lab at first lab at St. Mary's I was pretty scared. I didn't really know the other members of my group but it was a great experience. We first all met up in the large gym and watched the one group teach their games. I noticed that I actually knew a few of the kids and some girls came up to me and told me my hair was awesome(it is pink and purple). We then went down stairs and met up with the kids that we would be spending time with. I talked to a few of the older girls and then went to color with two young girls. I tried to make conversation with them; asking what they have been doing in school etc. They were very talkative. We went upstairs and played a few games. The kids were pretty attentive for the most part. I did not play by game. We played with them for a while and then all of the groups came in. We then played a group game and did a cheer. It was not as bad as i expected. I was quite nervous but it worked out very nicely. Lab Write-up
