I learned the greatest scooter tip at a collaboration meeting this week. I have always had trouble with the smaller children smashing their fingers when the scooter tips and they are holding on to the handles. Ouch! Another teacher suggested having them hold onto the seat; handles go out around the hand. It works great! If a scooter tips the handle actually protects the hand instead of smashing it. I used scooters today for the first time with kindergarten and had no smashed fingers.
