This weeks lab at St. Mary's was our groups worst lab. It was based around evaluating the overhand throw and catching. We were not prepared well enough with an activity for the kindergarters who are inpatient and love fun activities. I think the most difficult thing I have faced is trying to control the kindergarten group during an activity. They have trouble staying still and listening so you have to be loud and on point with directions. When trying to teach an activity to the kindergarteners, our group needs to be prepared and know what we are doing well before doing the activity. In other words it is hard to just ‘wing’ an activity at the last minute because it is likely to fail.
