Shoes make me crazy!!! Literally! I hate untied shoes and kinders are notorious for having them. My two oldest sons knew how to tie their shoes before they went to kindergarten. That doesn't always mean they took the time to do it, but at least I knew that if an adult said, 'tie your shoe' they could.
If you know anything about me and my teaching style, you know I love to celebrate successes. So this allows me to say 'Yippee' when a kinder masters the art of lassoing their tennis shoe laces.
Of course there is a certificate . . .
and then I have an 'on-duty' sheriff who has the honor (and responsibility) to tie shoes for that day (or week) depending of the number of deputies you have around waiting for their turn.
I'll be back this later this weekend with some pictures of my week and plans for you to look over. Until then, check out this cute little Halloween-ish activity I came up.
