Sign Of The Week – Want

Sign Of The Week – Want

Welcome to the Sign Of The Week.

I would like to teach you a sign that I introduce to young children so they can start making their first sentences with Lámh. I introduce this sign once children can use signs for some of their favourite toys, activities or food consistently.

That sign is the sign for WANT.

So, when a child requests “water” with Lámh, I show them the sentence “I want water” with signs and words too. I do this consistently until eventually, they start using “I want” sentences also.
Sometimes, they need reminding to use all the signs and say all the words in the sentence. Remind them gently to “use all the words” and give them praise every time they try.

So, the sign of the week starting on Monday the 9th of NOVEMBER is WANT
