JUMP A STATIONARY ROPE

The rope is stretched out across the floor. The jumpers line up and jump the rope one at a time on a signal. As the jumper approaches the rope he plants both feet together and broad jumps across the rope. Cue: take off on 2 feet and land on 2 feet.

JUMP THE SNAKE

Rope turners crouch or kneel and wiggle the rope from side to side, (no more than 12 inches). Jumpers take off and land as they did with a stationary rope. The goal is to avoid touching the rope.

SIDE SWING

Fold the rope in half and turn around with your body in a circular fashion. Have the partner jump over the rope as it goes around in a circle.

SIDE STEP SIDEWARD

Again fold the rope in half with both hands to one side of the body. Swing the rope to the left side of the body and then the right side. Jump over the rope as it touches the left and then the right side of the body.

STRADDLE JUMP-Alternate

A regular jump with a straddle jump. The straddle jump has the feet spread to shoulder width.

SKIER

The skier is a double-foot jump similar to a technique used by skiers. The jumper stands on both feet on a line. Jumping is down sideways back ad forth over the line. Children should also try it in a backward and forward direction.

HEEL TOE

The Heel-toe, as the rope passes under the feet, the jumper jumps with the weight landing on the right foot while touching the left heel forward. On the next turn of the rope, he humps lands on the same foot, and touches the left toe beside the right heel. This pattern is done again with the opposite foot bearing the weight.
