Today we are going back in time! For this teaching assignment, we were to teach a sport or activity from a different country. My teacher partner, Kevin, and I thought that Kubb would be a great idea to teach. This time when I taught, I felt a little more comfortable. I felt like I knew the information and it was fun teaching a new sport to the class. The hardest part for me was finding an instant activity to go along with Kubb but we could not find one. So we decided to come up with Halloween tag. After the tag game was over, I got right into the introduction of Kubb. Went into the history and how it came about being popular not just in Sweden, but all over the world. What helped me a lot during this lesson was my visual aid. As you can see, I was referring to my poster, going over the history of the sport and the cues to throwing the Kubb. When I was demonstrating on how to throw the Kubb, I should have used a real ring, instead of doing it without one. The students were a bit confused at what I was asking them on how to throw it.During the class I should have gave more feedback to the class. Telling the students what I liked and what they can improve on. In matter of fact, there were some problems during the class that some students were just sliding the ring on the ground. If I had shown them while I was demonstrating, that would not have happened.

5 Alive flying high at St. Mary's

It was another great day at St. Mary's! Today, we got to work the pre-k students. They were awesome to work with. All of them were great to us and we had a great time working with them. At first we started out in the pre- K rooms. I got to play with play dough with the kids. We were making all different shapes and sizes of different animals. The students were making some delicious apple pie soup. It was very tasty! We spent about a hour inside and then we went outside for a bit. We were playing hide and seek with the kids and they loved it! They had some really good hiding spots also and they were quick! After we went back inside, we into the gym had set up a little maze for them. They had a great time with that!
