Category: Second Grade





Place a small object eight to ten inches high upright on the floor to
represent a candlestick. The players run in single file and jump with
both feet at once over the candlestick, while all recite:

Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick.
Jack jump over the candlestick.

Each player tries to clear the candlestick without knocking it over.

Rhythmic.
