Jump Roping Day 2

We had another fun class: jumping rope. We worked in groups to make a new routine. We were encouraged to be as creative as possible and try to include some skills that we saw in this You Tube video from last class. Check out these kiddos, they’re quite impressive:

Although none of the groups in class looked this good, we ALL IMPROVED. It was fun to see just how creative the class was. I also felt like I was able to contribute to my group. Jump Rope is great for children of all ages. Through this experience I've developed more of an appreciation for what jump roping can offer students. It certainly is a cardiovascular workout. If you don't believe me give it a try. You'll break a sweat in under a minute. Awesome right!. Furthermore jump rope reinforces one of the basic locomotor movements: jumping. In addition reinforcing jumping it promotes integrated coordination and can be adapted to meet the needs and skill levels of students.
