At lab 5 I had a blast. It was the first time I have been downstairs with the kids. I got to play Lego's with the boys and build ships, houses, and warriors. We also got to spend time in the gym which I like the most because I feel like that's where I get the most interaction with the students. The theme was thanksgiving and they were all so excited to have their days off and to eat. We incorporated many things dealing with thanksgiving. for example, we had kids during out activities say what they were most thankful for, what their favorite food was, and what they usually do for the holiday. overall it was a great time and I'm looking forward to lab 6!
This week at St. Mary’s our theme was Halloween. This was one of my favorite labs; the kids loved all of our costumes and seemed extra enthusiastic this week as well. I love that the kids are becoming more and more familiar with us and it’s really helping the connection and helping them learn new games and skills. Wednesday was also my first time I got to go outside, it was a beautiful day and it was really great watching the kids let loose and run around the playground. I personally was a make believe bird the entire time with two other girls, we made nests and flew around; it was actually a lot of fun.
