First Day of Lab

The first lab was really fun and interesting. We went on a tour of the different rooms that we will be working in, and we also got to meet and play with the kids for a while. We not only played games in the gym, but we also went into the Pre-K classrooms and saw what the kids were doing outside the gym. It was a good experience because it is good know what else your students might be doing during the day. In the classrooms we read books, played house, and played with various toys that were available to the students. I was served "play food", which consisted of chocolate milk, chicken, biscuits, and chicken noodle soup by one of the girls in the class who loved to play in the kitchen. I also played basketball with some of the kids and they are really good! I played with a 10 year old, and a 6 year old, and both of them loved shooting threes, and making them too. There was a clear developmental difference between the two boys however, and it was interesting to see it first hand. Can't wait to go back next Monday!!
