Crossing with Confidence
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to identify real-life connections between words and their use.
It is also important to teach our preschoolers to look for cars before crossing.
Preschoolers respond well with rhymes. Not only will the rhyme remind them to check for cars, but it will also allow for the introduction using directional words such as left and right. This will enhance their ability to follow directions as well as speak with intention.
Finding a safe practice area is a great way to start.
We practiced at the library.
Here is a rhyme to help guide your preschooler across the street.
Make sure no cars are in sight.
Safe to cross? Let's do it right!
