We just worked on environmental print signs this week at school. Environmental print are the first words kids learn to read in addition to their name. Examples of environmental print include: common signs in their environment (stop sign, bathroom sign), logos from stores/restaurants (Target, McDonald's, Chick-Fil-A, etc.), and logos on items in your house (food, appliances, etc.).
To tie into last week's post about core words (words that can be used in a variety of environments for a variety of purposes), two words we focused a lot on this week, were "Stop" and "Go." We made stop and go signs and put them on popsicle sticks (see file to the right) and played a version of the game "Red Light Green Light." Kids love to be in control so give them a turn to be the traffic cop too!
Here are also some videos and songs that lend well to teaching Stop and Go. Have fun on this long weekend.
