Day 2: Creative Methods to Teach Kids How to Tie
Jaden is in Kindergarten. She has had the desire to learn to tie her shoes for about a year now, but gets so frustrated! Mom pinned this article the other day. I read it and decided to give it a shot!
The writer gave three different teaching methods. The first one was what we have been struggling with for a while, "Bunny Ears." The problem that Jaden was having was, her laces were not overly long and she wasn't finding there to be enough room to get her two ears tied. She would get frustrated so easily and be quick to give up. I tried "The Squirrel and the Tree" method. This is how we all tie our shoes.
It worked perfectly! She definitely got the gist of it. Obviously she still needs to practice, but is well on her way to being an official shoe-tying expert!
