Traffic Lights Noise Level Indicator

Submitted by Fiona (11-10-2012)

I made a large set of traffic lights, on the green light I wrote 'Busy', on the amber light I wrote 'Whisper' and on the red light I wrote 'Silent'.

These lights represent the noise level that should be used in our classroom at any given time. I placed a velcro spot on the back of the lights, so that they can be easily moved/changed.

Cheers Fiona :)

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.

  • Dear Donna, thanks so much for doing these, i remember when i asked for these last year when i was teaching my special ed kids, im now at another school in NW WA and they will be just as useful in the two classes im now teaching, (Year 3 and Year 4), as the kids here arent necessarily up to the rest of the ozzie kids out there.
