Angela shared this jump rope rhyme with us that she learned in Newburgh, New York.
Jump Rope Song
Eevie ivy over,
Here comes the teacher with a big fat stick;
I wonder what she's got for Arithmetic?
1 + 1, 2; 2 + 2, 4.
Now it's time for Spelling.
Spell cat, c-a-t;
Spell rat, r-a-t.
Now it's time for History.
George Washington never told a lie
So he went around the corn-eeeer.
How many pies did he receive?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10….*
*Speed up turning the rope while jumping to see what number you get to.
