Tying A Bow

Source: Games Without Music For Children

Instructions.--The children should be sitting at desks or tables, and
each child should have a 3/4 yard length of tape or ribbon, one inch in
width, and a book with stiff cover. The teacher should first show how to
tie the bow by passing her ribbon round the neck or wrist of a child,
and performing the various movements as they are mentioned in the rhymes
and shown in the illustrations. This should be done several times
very slowly, the words being repeated either by teacher only or by all.
When the children begin to tie the ribbon each round its own book, the
teacher should show the various movements as they occur, performing them
simultaneously with the scholars. (The numbers refer to fig. 1, which
shows the various steps in order.)

[1]Place your ribbon round the book,
[2]Cross it--left end at the top;
[3]Now the right end take and pass
Over, [4]draw it tight, then stop.

[5]With the right end make a loop.
[6]Draw the left across it, so;
[7]Now another loop we make
With the left, and [8]pull it through.

'Tying a Knot' (which is more simple than 'Tying a
Bow') is given in the 'Kindergarten Guide,' p. 105.[A]
