This traffic light flips enables children to communicate their understanding of a topic (or their feelings) directly, visually and confidently.
All children start with the green face and they keep this at their table to communicate that they fully understand (GREEN).
As soon as they find that they only partly understand the change the flip to YELLOW.
If they don’t understand they change the fan to RED.
In this way a teacher can instantly and clearly see when a child requires additional support or input and the child feels more confident as they can communicate their level of understanding and receive help quickly, quietly and unobtrusively.
