At the Menino Deus community center this week we spent most of the time outside with the kids. Another teacher who is from the USA brought a wiffle baseball set and taught the kids to play baseball, and other kids were playing soccer in the grass alongside. Quite often the two games would intermingle as a ball would escape its playing area, which was pretty funny.
To my great surprise, having never been good at sports involving hand-eye coordination (particularly those involving a ball), I enjoy playing soccer with the kids. This is probably because it's really more like "keep away" and the object is to simply gain control of the ball, so I don't have to remember which direction I'm supposed to be going!
