Materials Required: Construction paper, glue, scissors
Activity Time: 30 minutes
Concepts Taught: Cutting, safety, shapes, and colors

This is a simple lesson plan for Prek that serves a variety of purposes. I thought of the idea
during safety week. Simply draw circles of the same size on yellow, red and green construction
paper. Write "Slow" on yellow, "Stop" on red, and "Go" on green. Make one for each child. Have
the child cut the three circles out, and paste them onto black construction paper to make
traffic lights. The plan teaches children to recognize circles, how to cut circles, the colors, and
the important safety lesson of when it's safe to cross the street. The traffic lights may be
dressed up by adding plastic eyes or hair. The children loved doing this, and it accomplishes
several teaching aspects at one time. I made a traffic light and put it up at center so the
children could see what it looked like, and discussed what signal each color meant. Hope you
enjoy doing this. Anna

SONG: To Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle traffic light,
On the corner shining bright.
Red means stop,
Green means go,
Yellow means very, very slow.
Twinkle, twinkle traffic light,
On the corner shining bright.
