Miscellaneous Physical Play Down at the Coffee Shop
- Language Play, Physical Play and Skipping Game
Down at the Coffee Shop is a skipping game/rhyme. Two players each hold an end of a skipping rope while other players skip, taking it in turns.
At School 14
Girls 3 and Boys 1
Props: Short Skipping rope with plastic handles
The rhyme goes:
Down at the coffee Shop,
Who will you meet?
A, B, C, D …
and so on until the skipper fouls. The letter on which they foul - they must say someone's name starting with that letter.
The principal at this school says that Skipping becomes popular around 'Jump Rope for Heart' time - but isn't particularly popular at other times of year.
