• TRY TO LEARN TO TIE
    *Really impress your classroom and physical education teachers when you return to school and you have learned how to tie your shoes!
    *Below are two great links that demonstrate how to learn to tie your shoes

    STEP 1 - Place the shoes on a flat surface.  Let the laces fall to either side of the shoe.

    STEP 2 - Tie a basic knot.  Take both laces and thread one lace over the other and then pull them tight.  They should form a knot in the middle of the shoe.

    STEP 3 - Tie another knot, but don't tighten it.  Keep the second knot loose.  Notice there is a circle shape formed by the knot.  Hold the circle shape with your hand and lay it flat against the shoe.

    STEP 4 - Thread one shoelace into the circle.  It should come through the circle and over to the other side of the shoe.

    STEP 5 - Thread the other shoelace into the circle.  It should come through the circle and over to the other side of the shoe.

    STEP 6 - Pull your loops tight.  Use your hands to pull the loops tight so they are secure.
