On the Road: Jump!

Hi Friends


Bookkitty inherited a neighbor's trampoline, so we have been jump, jump, jumping around all week:)



Will you sing (& jump) along with me:

5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off & bumped their head

Mamma called the doctor & the doctor said "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"

4 little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off & bumped their head

Mamma called the doctor & the doctor said "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"

3 little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off & bumped their head

Mamma called the doctor & the doctor said "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"

Do you know what is even better than a trampoline? Jumping rope! You can see some amazing jumping at the American Double Dutch Championship from 2018:



How far can you jump? Stand up, put your feet together & your toes at the edge of the rug/floor. Now jump as far as you can! Do you think jumping is easier with socks on or with your bear feet? Here are some more ideas for jumping games to try at home.


There is a Big Important "J" word that grownups sometimes use, justice. Bookkitty wanted to share a special book to help us think about what it means:



You can find more book suggestions here or check out the ideas to spark more discussion with this Justice lesson plan.


Righty then, now for a game for all the old people in the room.

Try to match up the lyrics with their songs:


Two lil' kids with a flow you ain't ever heard, And nuthin' fake & you can understand every word

Is it Jump in Line by Harry Belafonte or Jump by Kriss Kross


All the dreamers jump, put your hands up

Is it Jump by BTS or Jumpin Jack Flash by the Rolling Stones


I get up, nothing gets me down

Is it Jump by Van Halen or Jump into Love by Etta James?


And then reach for the sky

Hands in the air, the beat sound live

is it Badman Riddim (Jump) by Vato Gonzales or Jump then Fall by Taylor Swift?



Yep, there's nothing like music to put a smile on your face & get you happy boppin around
