Title of Bulletin Board: Stallings Kangaroos
Category: Jump Rope for Heart
Suggested Grade Level: k-5
Materials: Color paper 3x4 feet- laminated, border, photo camera, printer, glue gun, tape, or velcro.
When I am starting jump rope activities related to Jump Rope for Heart, I do a jump rope pretest. Students (grades 1-5) pair up, count number of consecutive jumps of their partners and report the number to me. Older kids can record the numbers by themselves in my grade book. Students are given a goal to become a Kangaroo after 4 weeks of practice. Each grade level has different goals 1-3-, 2-50, 3-100, 4-150, and 5th graders 200 jumps without stopping. Students are given homework to practice jumping daily for 10-15 minute.
