The enviorment theme this week was geared more toward the Pre-K. My group did Guard the Castle, but it was not really envirment based. We were observing dribbling and kicking, which the kids had a lot of fun with. The kids stayed interested to whole time with very little variation needed.
What might be some limitations to games or activities when using them in the process of assessing motor skills?
Some limitations would be that the kids are in such a hurry and so into the game that they are not worried about performing the skill correctly, just as fast as they can. Also, games do not guarantee that the kids are going to have the opportunity to perform all the skills being assessed.
