Christmas theme so everyone was in holiday spirit wearing red and green. This week i had the Cafeteria group which were the 3rd to 4th grade students. They were tons of fun to work with. We started off by playing a game that Professor Yang brought and we literally could've played this game all day because they were so engaged in it. It got a little out of hands at times so i had to reassure them that everyone has to be polite and share in order to have fun or we can't play it at all. After the game we went upstairs in the gymnasium to play some of the games they wanted to play. They instantly grabbed basketballs and started shooting at random, so i thought to myself that we should just all get together and play one big game of something. It took a while to get things situated because there were only a select few who wanted to do certain things. So what i did was have me and my lab partner and assistant start playing our own game and then the kids saw all the fun we had and wanted to join in. Overall it was a good day at St.Mary's and a excellent semester there as well!
The day before the St. Mary's Christmas Bazaar some classmates and I helped to set up the gymnasium. We helped move around tables and chairs and help set some games up. There were a few kids there that were also lending a hand which was good to see. We are very greatful for the experience at St. Mary's, and since I was unable to attend the Bazaar itself I figured this was the least I could do. We all worked together and had fun doing so, by the time we left the gym was all set up and i was exhausted, but there was no doubt in my mind that the kids were going to have a blast!
