Tying a Shoe Task Measurement Objective Learn to tie a shoelace with minimum difficulty Sturdy Tie, both sides (L/R) mastered, less than 1 minute for both, coordination mastered. Materials needed Tie Shoes See above Step By Step Instruction Detailed instruction Step A- 1)Place one shoe in front of the child with the shoe pointing in the same direction as if they were putting it on their own foot. 2 Let the shoelaces hang down at the sides of the shoe, one on each side. 3)Tell the child to put their LEFT hand behind their back. 4)Tell them to use their RIGHT hand to pick up the RIGHT shoe lace and cross it over their shoe. 5) Then tell the child to use their RIGHT hand to make an X with the other shoe lace. 6) Do this at least 5 times until they can do it without being talked through it. Step B – 1) Tell the child to take their RIGHT hand to grab the end of the lace on the RIGHT side and put it under the X (“go under the X from the front of your shoe to the back” or to make it more memorable, “the worm/snake crawls under the X and is heading for the big hole at the back of your shoe.”) 2) Then your child takes their LEFT hand and grabs the lace that is on the LEFT side and holds it while they grab the lace that is coming under the X with their RIGHT hand and then pulls both laces TIGHTLY (make sure they are pulling hard and are pulling straight out to the sides). 3) Do this step at least 5 times until they can do it without being talked through it Step C- 1) Tell the child to take their RIGHT hand and grab the RIGHT LACE where the lace touches the bottom right side of the shoe (helps them to find the right length for making the loop) and then make a medium-sized loop with the lace on the RIGHT side of the shoe and hold it against the top of their shoe with their thumb and forefinger, and the shoelace “tail” hanging down. NOTE: It’s very important that they hold the loop CLOSE to the top of the shoe or else it will come out too loose. Practice making the RIGHT loop at least 5 times. Step D- 1) Then, tell the child to use their LEFT hand to pick up the LEFT lace (they should grab it very close to the top of the shoe, just about 1” from the top left shoelace hole) and wrap it counterclockwise around their RIGHT thumb and the loop. NOTE: Demonstrate this first and consider using this language: “The loop is the head. Wrap the LEFT lace around his neck.”
