Most young children who are beginning school have not had the experience of walking with a large group.
.Walking in a line and staying with the group is not always easy for a young child.
.Have your classroom of little wanderers practice walking around the school and schoolyard holding onto a long rope.
.The children will think holding the rope is fun and it will help instill the idea of staying together.
. Once you begin any field trips, your children will already know how to hold onto the rope and stay together.
.But it does take some practice.
