6.) Skill themes and student abilities:
For the lesson we taught we had to pre-assess the students to gauge their ability level. For the skill theme we chose balance because the gymnastics unit was coming up at St Mary's and we wanted to make it easy for are master teacher. The students were very skilled and all were at the control level for balance. It is very important to assess the students ability level because it makes it easier to create a lesson plan that fits that specific class. No two lesson plans should be the same because every class is different and has different age and skill levels.
