This month students will be taking on the jump rope challenge. It’s a great opportunity for the students to learn a new skill and get some fantastic exercise into their routine.
For the month of October students will be practicing their jump rope skills during their lunch play time. We have a schedule that increases in difficulty over time. When the students can complete a level they will move on to the next difficulty.
For example- at level 1 students will attempt to complete 20 single jumps, 8 forward jumps 5 back jumps and a cross freeze jump. For the next level the number of jumps will increase and we will also add another move.
The goal of this is to give the students something to work towards, give them an outlet for their extra energy and also teach them about setting goals for them self. Students should practice if and when they want to at home or at their local park.
I hope everyone has a great time with their jump rope challenge!
