By observing the St. Mary’s children I have learned that each child is very different and needs to be taught in a different way. For the older students basketball was a good activity because while they were doing something they enjoyed they were also working on locomotor skills without even knowing it. An appropriate activity for the first and second graders was when they were throwing the balls over the mat the day we were working on throwing and catching. This allowed them to work only on throwing and catching while still having a good time and playing a game. It allowed them to be chaotic in a controlled way. Some of the tag games may not have been as appropriate because it was not as easy to incorporate the locomotor skills.
