Prep:

  • Print both Totetude Handprint Signs for each learner.

Instructions:

  1. Review the traffic signs.  What do their colors mean?  Who are the signs for?  Why do we need signs?
  2. First the learners will need to color their stop sign with a red crayon.  They need to make sure that they stay inside of the lines.
  3. Next, explain to the learners that they will be painting their hands and fingers to complete the stop sign and a traffic light.
  4. Learners are allowed to paint only one hand red and press it onto the middle of the stop sign.
  5. After cleaning their hand, the learners will finger paint the traffic light red on top, yellow in the middle, and green at the bottom.
  6. Once complete, the learners will clean their hands and their area.

Reflections:

  • I am able to color within boundaries of a drawing.

  • I am able to clean my work area.
