Fast as you can

Lift one leg at every line

Flap your wings

Hop every line

Drop to two knees at every line

Stop at every line

Once at your station I want to take 5 minutes to work on stopping (forwards and backwards ) then we will start the stations. SUPER IMPORTANT THAT THEY GET THIS!! NO STICKS – Emphasis is on “Bum stops you – silly but the fastest way to get them there)
