Jump Rope, Anyone?

Anybody need some new jump rope rhymes? Here are some composed by the clever students in my class.


Chipmunk, Chipmunk in a tree
How many acorns do you see?
One, two, three…

Jaguar, Jaguar in the zoo
How many meals do they feed you?
One, two, three…

One, two…blue chippoo
Three, four…The-o-dore
Five, six…chocolate sticks
Seven, eight…tummyache
Nine, ten…do it again.

Cheddar cheese, cheddar cheese in a dish
How many chipmunks will eat the dish?
One, two, three…

(Child’s name, child’s name) took a sprocket
And with it he built a rocket
How long did the countdown take?
One, two, three…

Did you have a favorite jump rope rhyme as a child? Do share!

    Well, let’s see… There was “Blue bells, cockle shells, easy ivy over…” followed by counting. There was also “Cinderella, dressed in yella, went upstairs to kiss her fella, made a mistake and kissed a snake, how many doctors did it take?” That’s all I remember at the moment, but my goodness, what memories! It takes me back. 🙂
