Today was the second day we were at St. Mary’s school in Cortland NY. We designated today as Western theme. My group wore bandannas around our necks and had sticker sheriff badges on. I think the kids enjoyed us dressing up and bringing them stickered sheriff badges so they felt they had a costume on also. My group, “The Triple Nuggets” was with the pre-K group. First we had play time inside because it was raining out. The students were playing with dinosaurs and other toys. I drew a dinosaur for a few children; they thought I was an artist. After play time they had snack, they ate animal crackers and milk. After snack Kristi read the children a book about cowboys, after the book we have everyone on sticker and went into the gym to start our games. I led the groups in a tag game where the cowboys from the east had to catch the cowboys from the west. I gave the cowboys from the east pool noodles, this was their lassos. The cowboys from the eats had to lasso the other cowboys up. I was getting the students to run around, after running I put little obstacles on the floor so they had to jump over them as they chased each other. I was teaching them to jump off two feet or hop off one foot. At this age it is hard to transition from running to hopping or jumping. Most of them would slow down then hop or jump. This is perfect as long as they are active and trying their best. I noticed they really liked the fact that they had to jump over stuff so I quickly made up an obstacle course out of hula hoops and other toys around the gym. I told them that in order to be the best cowboy you can be we have to practice all of our skills, so each obstacle had its skill. The children loved this because no one was chasing them so they could go at their own pace. Once we went in on direction for a while, I switched the direction so they can turn in another direction. Overall I think the children really enjoyed themselves and definitely got a work out. I am excited to go back in two weeks; I am running the big game at the end of the session with everyone! I am going to have a very unique and fun game prepared.
