Make learning to tie shoes fun for kids by reading SHOELACES, by Suzanne Lieurance.
This rhyming story introduces the concept of shoelaces. After you've read this story aloud, have your students see how many different kinds of shoelaces there are in the classroom. Some students may have plain laces and some may have fancy laces. Next, model for your students how shoelaces are tied, then have them practice.
At the end of today's lesson, ask students to bring an old pair of sneakers to school tomorrow.
