Sign of the Week: More

If you have children then you know that they love MORE. They love MORE food, MORE tickles, MORE paint, MORE music and many, many MORE.  This sign will be used frequently as you ask if they want MORE and again as they tell you that they want MORE. Avoid unneccessary tears by teaching your child the sign for MORE.

I think it sounds like lots of fun. Wish I could attend a class :)

Sign of the Week: Please

Along with thank you, the sign for PLEASE is one of the first manners signs parents often teach their children. The sign, PLEASE, is also one of the first signs babies pair with other signs to make sign sentences like "more please" or "eat please." Start teaching your child this simple sign today.
Sometimes, as my children start to whine for something they want, I remind them to "ask nice."  I find that they use a different tone when they add the word please to the sentance.  It calms the "gimme, gimme, gimme" tantrum to something more sincere and humble.  I like that.

Sign of the Week: Thank You

Many parents and teachers ask for the signs for manners.  One of the most commonly requested signs is the sign for THANK YOU.  Adults beam when a child says THANK YOU and this sign gives even the most reserved child a way to express gratitude.  Several parents have shared that this sign has even been used as a quiet reminder to their children to say THANK YOU for a gift from a friend or family member.

Sign of the Week: Drink

The ASL sign for drink is a gesture where you act like your hand is wrapped around a cup.  The sign can be modified slightly for children, thumb lifted, to represent the spout of a sippy cup or a bottle nipple. Children easily and naturally transition to the ASL sign when the lid is removed from the cup.
