Notes for Educators

  • Encourage your children to practice the four steps and the Roadstar Code Song moves. They can work in pairs and help each other get them right.
  • ‘Random reminders’: shout out a step number in any order through the day for your children to shout back the correct word and do the action as fast as they can.
  • Homework: encourage your children to teach their family/carers and friends the moves at home. They can also observe them as they cross the road and then report back on how everyone did: were the steps in the correct order? Did they do the moves? Who was the best? Did anyone need help? Keep scores!

The Roadstars Code Song Lyrics

The Roadstars Code Song

Be a Roadstar… Be safe from cars

First, hold an adult’s hand and choose a safe place to cross like a Boss!!
Now four steps:

Step 1
STOP!
With a superhero chop.

Stay away from the road while you check it

2.
LOOK.
Use those laser eyes, guys
Check for cars by looking right, left and right again

3.
LIST-EN…
Use your hearing like you’re Super-human
You might be able to hear cars before you see them

4.
Think.
Because getting hit by a car would superstink
Is there really enough time to cross the road safely?

If it’s clear, walk straight across the road – following the Roadstar code:

Keep LOOKING, LISTENING and THINKING
You’re a Roadstar!

STOP!
With a superhero chop.
LOOK.
Use those laser eyes, guys
LIST-EN…
Use your hearing like you’re Super-human

Think.
If you don’t you superstink.

Stop. Look. Listen. Think.
