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.
