Healthy Learners: Jumping Into Action!

My students need to stay active during our learning-packed day. We would love a class set of jump ropes to help us stay healthy and to keep our minds active!

My Students

As holistic educators, one of our daily challenges is to creatively keep our students physically active and healthy. I am continually teaching new games and exercises to my students during my PE time, but a staple piece of equipment is missing: jump ropes!

I have a room of fantastic fourth graders with lots of personality who are always eager to try new things.

We are creating our own missions at school together in groups and are currently jumping into learning about rocks and minerals. Our school fosters community and is plopped in the middle of a small town in California. Interests in our classroom range from baseball to singing and we are constantly learning life skills such as courage, integrity and perseverance.

My Project

For centuries, children around the world have been jumping rope as a simple and portable form of play. In order to fight against child obesity we, as educators, not only can teach healthy lifestyles, we need to engage students in the lifestyle. A major component of keeping students active is to engage them in play. The spectacular thing about jumping rope is that students don't need a team to engage in this type of play. They can even practice at home! As these 10-year-olds start jumping they'll be raising their heart rate, burning calories, and alerting their brain for more meaningful learning! My students need 45 individual jump ropes and 3 large ropes to use during our daily PE time.

Imagine 27 students hopping around on the blacktop with their jump ropes, reciting their math facts!

This is not only proven to help them retain information, but it is improving their overall health! What more would a teacher and a society want for this upcoming generation.
