We do lots of folk dancing, parachute activities, and espesically in the month of February, we jump rope! Our PE teacher is in the middle of Jump Rope for Heart.
She has asked me to teach each grade some different long rope songs and games.
The following slides will be ON SALE for the rest of Feb. on my Teachers Pay Teachers Page.
This is the easiest one for them to jump with because there are only two lines of text before the numbers:

This song is great for prepare/present/practice ti-tiri (or whatever you call it in your rhythm language) by isolating the last line or tiri-ti.
These are available for download as a PDF file. You can easily convert that to PowerPoint slides or whatever you use in your classroom. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Jump-Rope-Rhymes-and-Songs
I project these in my room when we are using that particular song/rhyme, but for Jump Rope For Heart I have each of these laminated on different cards that will be placed around my music room with long ropes for different stations.
