Students at my school come from many different places around the world. My goal as an educator is to make my classroom and our elementary school a safe, nurturing environment for my students. I want to use this team sport to show students that by working together they can improve their health, while having fun and learning new tricks. Our Rainbow Ropers Club will promote student interaction, collaboration, health and fitness. Double Dutch can exercise the entire body; legs, hearts, and minds. Scientists believe that one hour of Double Dutch can burn as many as 1,300 calories. When students were asked to do research on fun ways to stay healthy they determined that a sport that usually goes unnoticed but is "super fun" was jumping rope! They then asked if jumping rope was a club that we could start at our school. After brainstorming with students ways to make this a possibility Rainbow Ropers was born! This club would meet after school weekly, and students would take part in team double dutch, and team building activities. I am looking for your generous donations to make this goal possible for my students.
