One of the most important environmental print for your child is being able to read and understand safety signs. To keep your child safe, they should be able to read all traffic signs such as Stop signs, pedestrian crossing, and the walk and don't walk signs. Teach your child to read these signs so that they know where it is safe and where it is not safe to cross. Children should also be aware, that just because there is a safety sign posted, vehicles may not obey these rules, so it is important for them to look both ways and to make sure that cars have made a complete stop before they proceed across the street.
It is also fun to have your child practice reading the parking signs as you go for a walk or a drive to give them a real reason for reading.
