To teach children the skill of tying, we begin with the bow frame.  We break it down into many steps and it can take a while (!) to learn.  Tying can be tricky but with the bow frame, the children can see what ribbon goes where.  Several children are quite interested in this skill and we now have one child who can tie!  She is quite proud of herself and now other children ask her to tie their aprons for food prep or polishing work. 
 This little shoe was purchased using points from the Scholastic Book Orders.  Once the children have worked with the bow frame, they can tie using this pretend shoe.  The next step is to tie real shoes!  This is quite an accomplishment! The children feel very independent and proud!
