Physical Education - Chinese Jump Ropes and Long Rope Rhymes

This week's agenda was:

1.  Warm-Up = Jump and Jog
2.  Jump Rope Activities = Long Ropes (learning rhymes) and Chinese Ropes
3.  Poison Ball (For a video of this game, click HERE)

Two of my classes this week were the lucky ones.....we had two special visitors from the high school!  These two Kenowa Hills seniors came to demonstrate some jump rope skills and also spend time jumping with the students.  We had a lot of fun!  Below are some videos of our special guests.

Wow - check this out!

  2. I have been asked to take on the PE Dept at a Charter School. It is K-6. Their teacher abruptly quit. No plans or long term vision was left. I have a Master's degree in Education but not in PE. I have studied and studied your blog. I wish I could thank you in person for what you have done. Your work has given me plans, visuals, and confidence to take this on. I hope you can feel my gratitude, Kristin Brown
