Angela shared this jump rope rhyme with us that she learned in Newburgh, New York.

Bluebells, Cockleshells - American Children's Songs - The USA - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


*Speed up turning the rope while jumping to see what number you get to.


Here's another version that you can listen to here....

Bluebells, cockleshells,
Eevie ivy over,
My mother said that I was born...
January, February, March, April,
May, June, July, August...
1, 2, 3, 4...
