Yesterday on Friday we had our PE class. But for this class we had to fill in our ABL booklet. We had a class discussion about what are five aspects in the class (and outside of class) should be. We then completed our reflection 3 about what encouragement is. We had many activities we played so we chose one of them to talk about, link it to encouragement. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment.
|What does encouragement look like:
The activity I participated in was pipe line which required us to hold a pipe/gutter each. Somebody at the start of the line holds the small ball and everyone else has to connect their pipes together. Once the ball rolled past your pipe you had to go down the line and carry on connecting pipes.
Some members of our group smiled and cheered others in our own group. Even though we failed many times I continued to encourage my group and encourage to carry on and keep on going.
At some point of the game I was a little bit disappointed with the way my group acted (opposite of encouragement) but I tried to remind them in the nicest way possible to calm down.
|What does encouragement sound like:
Like how I stated we cheered and spoke kindly to others. The more we cheered the more happier and hype everyone felt. At one point we got a little too excited we lost focus and dropped the ball. Yes of course we had a laugh but just carried on.
We had many of us cheering each other or even to the opposing teams, we had team members laughing with each other, and also speaking kindly and helping them improve in their skills.
The time I felt the most courage was from my own health and PE teacher. I walked in from a small break and she told me to hurry in and help my group. She cheered loudly and supported my culture. We both chuckled and carried on.
|What does encouragement feel like:
You just have a sense of feeling to continue to keep on playing. If the mood and attitude is right then of course you will feel it. The more my group was cheering and smiling at each other the more encouragement we felt and wanted to keep going.
“It’s alright, just keep on going” and “algoods, try again” were the main phrases I heard throughout the game. Once everyone on the team heard this we kept on trying and trying again and didn’t really care if it took too long.
|Explain how encouragement influenced you during your activity:
Encouragement is what my team really needed.
At times we would be frustrated or annoyed with each other. I had to stop and tell members of my team to please calm down and be patient. They thought about it and then started to encourage others.
Whenever somebody would get mad with someone they would stop immediately and try to encourage them.
I know that I actually remained calm and cheered my team on. Even though that one person made a mistake I told them not to worry and to please carry on. It definitely makes you feel down when you get yelled at or feel discouraged. That’s why have been inviting my team to participate and to encourage others.
