Well Lab D is finally over, it just seems like the semester just started but it's starting to wind down. My Lab D was on Table Tennis, this lesson created a few problems for me. One thing that I really had to bring into consideration was the size of the rooms we were using. We were in the Squash courts so it was tough to find ways to use the rooms effectively. I decided to use 3 different rooms. One room had no tables and was used for my instant activity, the next room had 6 half tables in it so that the students could really work on the skills that we were learning, and the final room had 3 tables set up to practice the cross court shot and also to play games. I thought that I actually did pretty well on this teaching lesson, I hit a lot of good points and the students seemed to be having a good time. I still have a few area's that I need to work on. I still need to try and slow down when I'm explaining skill to the students, sometimes I get ahead of myself and jumble up my words. For this lesson I should of used more intratask variation. Some students were pretty good so I could of had them go into a different room and work on harder skills. This lesson I also decided to use pinpointing a few times. Pinpointing is a good way for the students to show each other how the skill looks or how it's performed. I'm really anxious to keep learning as much as I can and keep improving my teaching skills every day.

Getting ready for my Table Tennis Lesson

Over the past week or so I have been working on my Table Tennis lesson that I am going to be teaching on April 11th. So far I think I've been making some good improvements. This teaching lesson is really going to test me and I'll be able to see where I stand. For this lab the time period is now 25 minutes compared to just 15 for our lab c. Since were increasing the time, I've really spent a lot of time on trying to organize how I'm going to teach my lesson. It's also going to be tough because were going to be in the Squash courts. The squash courts are pretty small and it's hard to fit a lot of equipment in the rooms so I'm going to have to set up a few different rooms with different activities in each. I'm pretty nervous about teaching this lesson because it's created the most challenges for me. I also want to be able to make this lesson fun and interesting for the other students, physical education is a lot better when you're having fun.

Lab 4- St. Mary's

here is my lab 4


This week we were back at St. Mary's and we were assessing throwing and catching. My group was in charge of leading the opening games so the rest of our classmates could assess the designated students. Our games went alright but it was a little challenging because we had more students than normal and they were excited and ready to go so it was hard for them to stay still and pay attention. To be honest we probably could of found a better game to assess the students. With the game we had the students perform it was hard to assess them on their throwing skills because most of the students where throwing the ball under hand or side arm. Next time a better game idea would be to have the students throw balls over a high target so they can really work on throwing the ball over hand and also properly.
