Lab 2: Animals, Farm

Some students of the same age have better motor skills than others. I observed and assessed two students on three skills, running, galloping, and hopping. Casey and Michael were the students assessed, they were both six years old and in first grade. Although they were the opposite sex there was not much variability between the skills. There are many different teaching strategies and everyone learns in a different way. With younger children the more the teacher gets into it and enjoys it the more interested the students will be. When they were told a number of things to do at once, it was hard for them to remember so they couldn’t remember so they did whatever they wanted. When one thing was told to them they responded much better and did what they were told. Giving them one thing to concentrate on was more effective because their brains are not developed enough to remember a number of different things in a short period of time.
