Skipping to Success

As a new Physical Education teacher at Russell D. Jones Elementary, I quickly learned that 70% of my Kindergartners did not know how to skip. Research has shown that kids who know how to skip are better readers. So we went to work. I would pull groups of Kindergartners each day at 2pm and we would break down the skipping process! Within a few short months 99% of Kindergartners knew how to skip! I have no doubt that we will be at 100% any day now!
