Great lesson to Sonya, Emily, and Pamela on Friday. I really enjoyed the game and think second grade students would enjoy it a lot as well. I appreciate the idea that everyone is playing the games at the same time, yet there is no clear winners or losers. This creates a fun atmosphere that minimizes the probability of a competitive quarrel between students. Although there is room for improvement in regard to safety during the second game; I think we addressed the situation aptly by reviewing and revising the game.
I am intrigued by this new concept of reviewing each game and building on them with revisions. I think it enables us to be creative and take some of these ideas into our practicums, and ultimately our own classrooms. If we didn’t revise now, we may have to do so during the practicums even more so. I look forward to invasion games next week and continue to learn instant activities each week as well.
