Post Number 1
Today I went to St. Marys school to learn how I was going to be interacting with the kids. Each age group is different and have different ways of interacting with them. Over break I went into my old elementary school into my mother's pre-school class. This class had special needs students in it and they had to be treated/talked to in a different mannor then the rest of the students. When they were doing physical activity the teachers needed to assert themselves in a way that would keep the students attention but they needed to speak quickly because they would loose some of the children's attention. I think that going to lab will show me different ways to interact with older students as well as the younger ones.
