Shoe tying. . . not a school skill, I know. BUUUUT Pete the Cat came today to encourage us to tie our own shoes!
We read the book Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes and then talked about how Pete wants us to have safe feet. He sent a poster to school and the kids get to sign it once they can show me they can tie their own shoes:
He also sent each of the kids a License to Tie and a certificate:
I don't teach shoe tying but I do encourage it!
Now when a kinder asks me to tie their shoes I can say, "Ask one of Pete the Cat's friends who knows how!"
