Songs
Twinkle, Twinkle Traffic Light
Tune: Twinkle Twinkle Littel Star

Twinkle, twinkle traffic light
Standing at the corner bright,
When it's green it's time to go,
When it's red you stop you know,
Twinkle, twinkle traffic light,
Standing at the corner bright.
Honk! Honk!
I'm a little piece of tin
Nobody knows what shape I'm in
Got four wheels and a runnin' board
Not a Chevy of a Ford
Honk, honk, rattle, rattle, crash, beep, beep
Honk, honk, rattle, rattle, crash, beep, beep
Watching Traffic
Tune: Frere Jacques

Watch the cars go, watch the cars go
Whiz-zing by, whiz-zing by
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
That one's blue! That one's blue!

Repeat with different color cars. You can do this as a flannel board or many different other ways.
