Love the powerpoint, I will share it with my 5th grade teachers to use in the general ed. classroom as well. I have to admit, the "HOP on TWO FEET" bugged me too, so I changed it to JUMP, easy to do in a Powerpoint. Now if we could just change the Bunny Hop to the Bunny Jump....Thanks for the great idea, Jeff!

Nice idea, but in the slide show it really made me sad to see that the creator of this wrote, "HOP ON TWO FEET". UGH, that would be a jump, not a hop, which is done on one foot.
