Jumping Over the Bubbling Brook

Supplies: jump rope, music

Process: Have someone (preferably an adult) hold each end of the jump rope to the floor moving it back and forth like a snake. With music playing in the background, have the children jump over the bubbling brook one at a time with feet together. When they are done jumping over once, have them return to the end of the line to go again.

Teach Well: If a child is having a hard time jumping over the rope while it is moving keep the rope still. Jumping is a gross motor skill that needs to be developed. After the children have mastered jumping over the bubbling brook have them begin jumping over the quiet stream on one foot.
