One thing I HAVE to teach to my Ks is tying. A wonderful soul donated
about 35 aprons to my program. They are all adult-sized, regular tie
aprons. The part around the neck doesn't tie, but around the back, it
does. I teach them to hold the front of the apron under their chin (so
it won't hang down so far on their little bodies), wrap the ends around
the back and up to the front (criss-crossed in back) and then we tie in
front. That way they can see what they are doing. At the start of the
year, it's very frustrating to me because there are many who can't tie
(or they do that cheating thing where they make two loops and cross
them, but it comes untied immediately). But by the end of the year,
even the velcro-shoe wearers can tie. I know it's not ALL my doing, but
I do take some pride in it, as do the kids!
Oh, we also use rulers in my K class (for making lines, not
measuring...that comes later)
