Red light... stop, Orange light... get ready, Green Light...go.
Traffic lights are a great way to help kids organise themselves for work whether it be in a therapy session, in the classroom, in the playground or at home.
I have created 2 sets of traffic light visual aids to help kids to organise themselves, ie. to help with self regulation. Stop, Think, Do and Read, Plan, Write.
The traffic light visual aids come in a set including "Stop, Think, Do" and "Read, Plan, Write" in 2 sizes. The A4 size is suitable to use as a poster and the smaller size is suitable to be cut up and distributed to several children. You could print off copies for a whole class and paste them into an exercise book, use them as a bookmark or laminate and place on a child's desk.
These visual aids may be used in a variety of ways to help your child self regulate.....examples include helping children before they do a writing task, in social situations when they are challenged or distressed, to manage anxiety or anger, exam practise, etc. This may also be of assistance to children who are impulsive.
These traffic light visual aids for planning and organisational skills may be purchased from the Your Kids OT shop or Teachers Pay Teachers. I value your feedback here or on the sites where you purchase them. Thanks for telling me and others what you think! Let your colleagues know by pinning this or sharing this post.
