WEEK #19

K4 thru 1st grade this week continued to get ready for JRFH. We started class reviewing and practicing the basic skill of jump roping. We then manipulated the jump ropes by making pictures and letters. We ended class using double dutch ropes and playing Snake in the Grass, High Fence Low Fence, and Cat/Mouse.
2nd grade this week started class getting ready for JRFH and getting some heart healthy cardiovascular exercise by learning some jump rope tricks. They included the bell, ski, straddle, and straddle cross. We then went over offense and defense and ended class playing an activity called Get In There.

3rd & 4th grade this week started with some heart healthy jump roping. We focused on the criss cross trick if they were ready. Otherwise, they practiced and reviewed previous tricks. We also went over the difference between offense and defense and ended class playing the game Hideout or Satellites.
5th grade started class with a quick game of Fitness Tag. We then started getting ready for JRFH. We discusssed the reasons why our school participates in this event. We then went over the basic jump rope cues and praticed our rope jumping skills. To end class, we played a great muscular strength and endurance game called Battleball.
