Sign of the Week: Stop

STOP is an important safety sign.  Teach the sign for STOP by playing "STOP and go" games; for example dance to music then STOP, move to the music again, then STOP.  Teaching your child the sign for STOP while playing games can help him to appropriately respond to the command, STOP, when there is a dangerous situation.  This is especially relevant in the summer months: "Stop! Don't go near the pool!" and "Stop! don't go in the road!"
