Date: Fall 2011


For Motor Development (PED 201) I had the privilege to work with students from St. Mary's Elementary.  During the year I was able to create and lead games for students in Pre-K through sixth grade.  Over the course of the year I was able to observe the students motor skills.  It was a great experience because I became more familiar with the development of motor skills in children.  On my way to becoming a physical educator I have a better understanding of motor development as it relates to theory and principle as they related to skillful movement.  The lab write-ups that I have recorded show my deeper understanding of motor development.
