- Gather materials.
- Print a Totetude Sign Printable for each learner.
- Cut out Totetude Sign Printables.
- Pre-cut a slit wide enough for a popsicle stick into each plastic bottle cap (optional).
- Each learner is given at least one sign and tries to explain what the sign means, what color the sign is, and how many sides the sign has.
- Educator hands out the pre-cut signs for the learners.
- Learners can either color the sign or use the signs that are already in color.
- Learners then take a popsicle stick and glue the blank side of a sign to the top of the popsicle stick. With the other matching sign, they paste it to the popsicle stick and the previous sign's back.
- Once finished, the learners can insert the signs on the popsicle sticks into a pre-cut bottle top or into a small ball of playdough to stand up.
- Learners can use the signs they made in a pretend community.
