Rhymes for Putting Shoes Away?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've googled and googled and can't seem to find any Waldorf-inspired verses for putting away shoes on coming into the house. Does anyone know of any pertaining to putting away shoes? Or at least putting away? I hope that would help encourage my son to put those shoes away instead of nagging/lecturing. His teacher has a great rhyme for putting warm things on before going outside (that he loves to repeat and then actually DO it)...there must be something similar for putting away shoes, no?

Thanks!

I have one... but I think I got it from Barney...

 

Clean up clean up everybody everywhere. Clean up clean up everybody do your
share.

But we say pick up, pick up.

You could make one up :)

 

We all take off our shoes in the hallway before coming inside.  It's just in our rhythm.

This works for about everything:

 

"This is the way we take off our shoes, take off our shoes, take off our shoes, This is the way we take off our shoes, early in the morning."  "This is the way we put away our shoes...."


We use it all the time, and it doesn't seem to matter if it is really morning.

 

 

I also love just simple:  "Tidy time....Tidy time...."

 

Our latest Waldorf teacher uses much simpler verses for transitions, and it seems just as (if not more) effective. 

 

Good luck!
