Tying Shoes

1-2-3-4 – TYING SHOES
Let’s get ready to tie your shoes.
Over and under.  Now, what to do?   (Pull strings tight.)
1. Make a loop that looks like a tree.  (Make a loop with right string.)
2. The other string is a rabbit you see.  (Hold up left string.)
3. The rabbit goes around and in a hole.  (Take left string around loop and stick in the hole.)
4.  Pull the loops tight and there is your bow!  (Take both loops and pull).
Take the 2 strings                     (Make loops with each string.)
And make two bunny ears.
Over and under
And a knot will appear.                (Tie loops in a knot.)
Pull the ears tight
And what do you know?               (Pull loops.)
You’ve tied your shoes
And there is your bow!
Hint!  One teacher suggested getting a bag and sending home the shoe with a different child each night.  It would be a nice reminder that children still do need to know how to tie their shoes in 2012!
Thank you, Dr. Jean:)
