They learned this jump rope trick called the wheel and are now doing "around the world" where you switch places. This trick is hard b/c if you watch them jump their arms are going in a swimming motion so that the ropes are alternating.
They learned that in one PE class period today. I got them started on the wheel and they just went with it!! I am so incredibly blessed with my college student who still competes competitively and is volunteering to help our team. I could have never taught them that more complicated trick.
Today's jump rope team practice went really well. We continued working on our routine today and it's starting to come together. We already have a set performance at a college basketball half time show (yay!) in January and have 2 other prospects. I know every teacher in this world talks about how incredible their students are. But mine really are that good. They are invested in this as am I.
