Traffic light letters are alphabet letter and sound cards that actively engage children in the readiness skills needed to be successful readers.
Children love animals, and in Traffic Light Letters, delightful and unique animal illustrations are used to introduce the letters a-z. Your students are actively engaged as they hula with Hippo, fly a kite with Koala, and jog with Jaguar.
What is the handiest tool? It’s your hand and in Traffic Light Letters, each letter is illustrated as part of the hand! Letter identification comes quickly when young students see, sign (using American Sign Language), and say each letter. Now teachers can immediately check for understanding, as young students “sign” the sounds, CVC words, etc.
Each letter has a colorful border and traffic light that helps children in sounding out words. The traffic light tells them when to STOP, use CAUTION, and GO! When you come to a red light letter, STOP and think because red light letters are vowels and they make many sounds. When you come to a yellow light letter, use CAUTION. Look to the right of the letter and where the letter is because it can change the letter’s sound. Yellow light letters are consonants that make more than one sound. When you come to a green light letter, GO, GO, GO! Green light letters are consonants that make only one sound.”
Every letter also comes with a Sound Key. Sound Keys show all the sounds and combinations of sounds each letter can make. Students can use Traffic Light Letters when spelling out simple words and words that have inconsistent but common spelling-sound correspondences.
It’s time to put your children in the driver’s seat as they begin to read with Traffic Light Letters!
