Speed Jumping


Directions

These rhymes can be used by individual jumpers and by children jumping in groups. Twirl the rope very fast after saying the word pepper and count to see how many fast jumps the jumper can make before he trips.

Mabel, Mabel, set the table
Just as fast as you are able.
Don't forget the salt, sugar,
Vinegar, mustard, red hot pepper!
One, two, three, four, five...

Mother sent me to the store.
This is what she sent me for:
Coffee, tea, and red hot pepper!
One, two, three, four, five...
