This weeks lab theme at St. Mary's was farm animals. Same as lab 1 we evaluated a couple of the kids on their ability to run, gallop, and hop. I was downstairs in the cafeteria with the kindergarteners, where i played with some of the kids building 'forts' and 'cities' with the wooden-shaped block toys. It was cool seeing how their imaginations were when building because it got me flashing back to when I was that age. After building with some of the kids we played a small game of jiraffe and elephant tag using the motor movements of running, galloping, and hopping. The kids seemed to like it a lot, so we played it a few times. Overall, this weeks lab was very good, and the kids did a good job of listening to instruction.
