Gobble gobble dribble dribble!

This was a very exciting week at St. Mary's because it was leaning towards Thanksgiving break so that was our theme. It was very fun because everyone was getting into the holiday spirit. Nate and I were in the Special project group so we didn't get a chance to work with the kids that much. For our project we had to put together posters of all of the collages we made for St.Mary's and post them up where everyone can see them. I liked doing this because i saw what everyone had to offer in their collages and extremely appreciated the collages that had me in them doing stuff because that showed me that other people observed and liked what i was doing with the kids. Later on during lab when we got finished we went in the gym to see what everyone was doing and it put a smile on my face to see kids that i worked with previously came up to me and asked me to play with them. The majority of the kids were from the the 1-4 grade who came up to me. I had to tell them to wait until next week so we can play again and they didn't want to hear that. At the end i had to do a dance and a cheer. The song was the chicken dance but i just changed it to the turkey dance for the task that was provided. First i made sure they all knew what the chicken dance was and if they can do all the moves first then i transitioned over to doing the whole dance and walking around the circle with them. After that was over we brought it in and made them say HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! overall it was a fun lab and now i can't wait for the Christmas lab!
