Week 2


**If you have not learned to tie your shoes yet, this will be a great time to give it a try.  There are a couple of good Youtube videos to help you. I tried to link them, but it would not allow me.  Ask an adult to help you find these videos if you need help. If you don't have shoes with laces, borrow a family member's shoe and put it under the leg of a chair to hold it still while you practice!  Good luck! Don't give up, it takes a lot of practice!  When you get it, send Mrs. Cantz and/or Miss Pfander a video- we would love to celebrate with you!
