Activity: Making Signs

Objective:

to paste objects within boundaries

Materials:

1 scissors  for prep
1 glue stick  per learner
~ 6 popsicle sticks  per learner
(Optional)  1 container of playdough  for prep
(Optional)  1 exacto knife  for prep
(Optional)  1 box of crayons  per learner
(Optional)  ~ 6 plastic bottle caps  per learner

Supporting Media:

Prep:

  • 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).

Instructions:

  1. 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.
  2. Educator hands out the pre-cut signs for the learners.
  3. Learners can either color the sign or use the signs that are already in color.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Extension:

  • Learners can use the signs they made in a pretend community.

Reflections:

  • I am able to paste signs together on a stick.
  • I am able to remember community safety rules.
  • I am able to explain community safety rules to others.
