Traffic Light

For this flannel board I have a trio of options to use with it. The first is a poem written by John Ciardi, the second is a rhyme, and the third is a song my MaryLee Sunseri

I Met a Man with Three Eyes
John Ciardi

I met a man that was very wise.
He had no hands, but he had three eyes,
One green, one yellow, and one red.
He had nothing at all but eyes in his head.
He looked at me and kept winking and winking
As if to say, “Guess what I’m thinking.”

–You’re making it up! It isn’t so!

–Oh yes it is. He is someone you know.
He lives on my street, and he can’t talk
But he knows how to say STOP, GO, and [SLOW].
And that’s all he says, all day and all night.

–Oh, now I know! –MR. TRAFFIC LIGHT!

Twinkle, Twinkle Traffic Light
Twinkly, twinkle traffic light
Standing on the corner bright
Red means STOP
Green means GO
Yellow means very, very SLOW
Twinkle, twinkly traffic light
Standing on the corner bright

I Have a Little Bicycle
Marylee Sunseri | Baby-O!

I have a little bicycle, I ride it to and fro.
And when I see the light is green—I know it’s time to go.
I have a little bicycle I ride around the town.
And when the light is yellow—I know that it’s time to slow down.
I have a little bicycle, I bought it at the shop.
And when I see the light is red—I know it’s time to stop!
