Marker – is a child outside the circle, who chooses one of thechildren in the circle with a touch and also starts the game by shouting „The word“ Jumper – is a child in the circle, who after being chosen by the Marker tries to step on the foot of a player nearby.
I. â€˘ All the children stand in a circle
with their right foot in the middle of it.
â€˘ When they stand in a circle, one
child, who is outside the circle and is called Marker, touches the back of a chosen child with his hand. The child he/she touches is called Jumper.

most letters in the word „Word“ at the end of the game.
