The Community Safety Sign Falshcards are a great refresher/introduction to the community safety signs that you will see with your students through the course of the school year.
This task can also be utilized as a whole class review/game, revisiting over thirty-four of the most common safety signs your students will encounter through the course of the school year.
This is a great task to be followed up with a CBI outing, allowing students the opportunity to identify and define the community safety signs in a real-world setting, allowing for greater generalization of the skills you are teaching them.
This product includes over 34 of the most commons community safety signs that students will see in the community. Additionally, I have a few that are similar to each other, but different enough that it may be a challenge to more advanced students. These flashcards can be used to teach safety signs to students from kindergarten through adulthood. Included in the flashcards are: fire extinguisher, womens' bathroom, mens' bathroom, recycle, escalator (up/down), handicapped, first aid, no smoking, hospital, emergency exit, elevator, danger: electrical current/high voltage, do not enter, closed, exit, caution, stairs, fire alarm, pedestrian crossing, open, walk, bike path, don't walk/stop, pay phone, construction cone, road work, tsunami danger, throw away trash, water fountain, school crossing, stop sign, push, pull, and enter.
Additionally, I have included 10 blank cards to customize to your own community signs, and a free data tracking sheet, to monitor your student's progress in safety sign identification.
These flashcards could be used as a task box item to gather baseline data or work on students’ identification of a variety of community safety signs. You can fold along the center line and laminate for a question/answer card, or cut the answers and questions separately and laminate, to double the activity as safety sign identification AND matching (with a lot of visual discrimination thrown in)!
I have included a data sheet to track student progress, along with some blanks in case you would like to add your own community signs to the deck to maximize appropriateness for your specific classroom. I hope this is a helpful task for your students!
