Welcome to the sign of the week.
This video will teach you a sign you can use while playing fun games with all children in the class. It is the sign for QUICK.
Quick/fast and slow are some of the opposite words I teach to my students. I initially used pictures to teach these, but I quickly realised that it didn’t make too much sense for my students to learn these concepts from images, so I had to figure out a better way.
It’s more fun and effective teaching quick and slow with movement and music activities, or if you are up for it, race with your students to see how “quick” they can run.
I also practice these concepts with parachute games. We shake the parachute quick and then slow. I can assure you all children will love it, and you will hear lots of giggles.
Remember to use Lámh signs or pictures so students with language delay can also participate in the games.
I hope you have fun practising the concept and sign for QUICK.
