Hey St. Mary's! How Do You Do?
My past trip to St. Mary's my group and I were special projects so we had to organize and take inventory on all of the equipment in both of the closets. We also took pictures of every piece of equipment so we could label the boxes accordingly so finding a specific item would be easier for everyone. Next we brain stormed on what we think the bulletin board should be and I thought that we could make a collage of different locomotor movements/lifelong skills and title it something like "St. Mary's Leap Toward Physical Change." After we played with some of the students in the gym for about twenty minutes and then the Sommersaults brought everyone together for a game/song/cheer. We played a game called "Have You Ever?" and if the question applied to you then you would find a new place in the circle and whoever did not find a spot would be the person in the middle to lead the next have you ever question. Then Ryan led the Baby Shark song and everyone was involved in the song. It was a lot of fun plus Professor Yang filmed it so I am eager to see everyone participating. Finally I ended the day with a cheer I learned from my High Schools Cheer Leading squad. It is called the circle cheer. You begin the cheer by saying "Hey St. Mary's! How do you do? The Sommersaults team has got a boogie for you! Then after that I would lead the group by saying "Were gunna turn around, touch the ground, shake our booties, and get on down!" We repeated the cheer twice so everyone could understand and have fun with it. I was a little bit nervous at first but in order for it to work you have to be confident and cheerful. Then I had everyone gather into the middle, put our hands together, and cheer St. Mary's on three. I would say that the day was a success and I had a lot of fun interacting with the students. I love going there and I am eager to return!
