One, Two Buckle My Shoe!

Practical Life: Shoe Buckling
I spied this pair of shiny black buckle shoes while at the local Goodwill Store. For $1.99 I found our classroom's most popular practical life work! This one pair of shoes has been on several pairs of toddler feet since being introduced on Monday.
I'm going back there soon to try and find some Velcro sneakers, most of my students wear them, and I think these would be equally popular as an activity.
Happy Buckling!

I love how just the most basic, practical skill can provide so much entertainment and learning!

I love this idea! It's so much more interesting than a "fake" set of buckles or laces. Great one!

How resourceful of you. I'm sure the children just love buckling and un-buckling these shoes. Great idea.

Fantastic idea! I think we'll be borrowing it tomorrow for a project during quiettime. Thanks!
