|1st graders using the Chinese Jump Rope - Americans Pattern|
Below are also a few pictures of the "towel push" exercise which I added to our warm-up activity. It was something fun and different for the kids and they seemed to enjoy it! Our warm-up routine is jog 1 lap, then do 10 reps of an exercise, and repeat for 3-5 minutes. The towel push was an exercise they could choose during this time. This routine gets their heart rates up very quickly and provides for a lot of variety.
