Shoe Tying With Pete the Cat



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!"

  9. Oh, I so love this. I swear my little buddies are sitting there untying their shoes just so I have to retie them, when I'm trying so hard to fill their little heads and hearts with knowledge. I have a couple that untie their laces to chew on them during group times! No matter that it's almost like licking the floor!
