Teaching Guide for the Traffic Signal Light Program: Kindergarten Level.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
This teachers' guide provides materials and suggestions for approximately 125 lessons that are designed to increase kindergarten children's traffic safety skills and knowledge. Most of the guide focuses on (1) lessons about physical structures in the pedestrian environment such as sidewalks, curbs, crosswalks, and intersections, and (2) signal light utilization lessons leading to proper procedures for using the signal light when crossing the street and using the walk/don't walk signal. Materials for supplementary and culminating activities also are provided. Throughout the lesson material, safety concepts and skills are taught through art, fingerplay, language, literature, math, music, pegboard, physical education, poetry, reading development and science activities. Block construction activities and dramatization activities are included and films are listed. While the lessons are arranged sequentially, they also can be used selectively. The guide also provides a cross reference enabling the teacher to select activities in terms of safety area, integrated subjects, type of activity and/or type of skill taught. Approximately 25 masters that can be reproduced for classroom use are included in the guide. Some of the materials in this teachers' guide are designed to be used in conjunction with a portable, working traffic signal and a walk/don't walk light. (Author/RH)
