The Easter Bunny Makes A Stop At St. Mary's

Lab 4

This week lab was Easter themed given that of the holiday is coming up. My group worked with the pre-k students this week, and it was drastic change from working with the other students. The pre-k students were harder to keep on task, but they were very willing to try any activity we came up with. Our task was to view their object control skills with overhand throwing, so we came up with a simple game called Easter Bunny Rescue. The main point to the game was for students to obtain an Easter egg, and then throw it into the hula hoop with the matching sign for the color of the egg. I was surprised that I only had to say it once and the students immediately understood. In the classroom I also noticed how the pre-k were much more willing to come up to you and start talking about anything or even just invite you to play with the toys around them. My group brought in a variety Easter coloring pictures for the pre-k, and when they were done posted them on a gigantic poster for everyone to see inside the gym. Judging by the smiles on everyone’s faces, I think they really enjoyed the Easter theme.
