Traffic Lights

Age Range: 5 - 7
By: Kerry McArdle

I am a big fan of shared writing!

A really effective way of demonstrating where we need full stops and capital letters is to the use the 'Traffic Light' concept.

Green means 'go' which is when we use a capital letter to start a sentence, Red means 'stop' which is when we need a full stop.

I have a green pen and a red pen which the children can hold and they know when I need to use them.

We use speed bump; the children lie down on their back with hands by their side. Traffic jam; the children sit in a line one behind the other and make tooting noises also hump back bridge; they make an arch with their back with hands and feet on the floor. This is a fun game!
