    I want to help my boys (I have all boys this year!) to tie their shoes. I know there is a rhyme about a bunny going in the rabbit hole or something like that but I'm not sure. Does anyone know it?

    Teepee Tying


    Use different colored shoe laces so that you can cue the child on which side they should be working with at a given step In the poem below each line corresponds to one step of the tying process.

    Build a tee pee
    Come inside
    Close it tight so we can hide
    Over the mountain
    And around we go
    Here's my arrow
    And here's my bow!



    Criss Cross Tying Shoes
    (tune: Splish Splash I was taking a Bath)

    Criss Cross and go under the bridge
    Then you got to pull it tight.
    Make a loop but keep a long tail
    That is how to do it right
    Then you take the other string
    and you wrap it 'round the loop
    Pull it through the hole
    Now you got the scoop

    Criss Cross and go under the bridge (this is where you tie the loops together)
    Now you made a Double Knot!

    I just searched for kids songs typing shoes and a long list came up.

    I just tried using that to tie my own shoes.

    I ended up crying over a knot I couldn't get undone.

    "The gopher comes out of the hole, goes around the tree and back in the hole."

    Oh, wait. That's a bowline knot. I don't think they want that unless they're planning to hang upside down by their feet.

    These are some great posts and ideas. Thank you to all for posting. I think some of these poems are going to go be put up in posters for my classroom.
