Did you know jumping is related to learning? Read this and check out the great tip sheet.Children should be able to jump with both feet at the same time on the spot at the age of 4 years.

Children should be able to jump with both feet in a forward direction (like this photo) at the age of 5 years.

I often get asked by teachers "what does jumping have to do with reading and writing".

A lot actually...

Jumping uses the part of the brain called the cerebellum. This part of the brain is responsible for our gross motor skill of balance, as well as focus, concentration, and attention.

Children who typically find it difficult to jump and balance, may also find it hard to focus and may be easily distracted in the classroom because their cerebellum is underdeveloped.

So learning to jump on the spot and jump forward is one of the crucial skills needed for the development of children's focus and attention skills.

    It's Spring! Disconnect & get out there!   Children are more disconnected from the natural world than ever before. This is deeply concerning.   In Richard Louv's bestselling book Last Child in the Woods, he quotes a child as saying he wanted to play inside because "that's where the electrical outlets are".  Technology is here to ...Read More »
