There’s a lot to love about jumping rope—a sports that is especially good for strengthening the vascular, respiratory, and nervous system. Rope jumping can also improve organ development which is beneficial for the well-being of the body and children’s balance as well as rhythm. Rope jumping requires children to coordinate both hands and legs at the same time. It also requires rhythm in the process. Throughout the jumping process, children’s left and right brain needs to be coordinated effectively, which allow complete development in children both physically and mentally. During the learning process, children can experience perseverance as each pose requires practices. It is difficult to succeed without perseverance and with the fear of failure.
Very often, children learn mathematical concepts in an abstract way. They memorize mechanically without understanding the meaning of quantity. Rope jumping allows children connect this abstract concept with the number of jumps they do so that they can have a basic understanding of quantity. During the process of rope jumping, the instructor will encourage children to count out loud the number of jumps as they jump to develop a corresponding relationship. Children can then convert the numbers into something specific during the process.
