Hi there,

Welcome to the sign of the week.

This is a sign you can use every day during circle time or assembly.

Once children are 3-4 years of age, most preschool teachers introduce the days of the week. At that age, most preschoolers don’t fully understand the concept of time, but it’s ok to start talking about the days of the week and what day is today during circle time.

Children with developmental delays or autism may need more time to learn this, but of course, they can still join their peers singing the song “days of the week” every morning, although fully grasping the concept of time can take time to learn.

Children can begin to associate activities that happen on different days. For example, on Mondays, they go back to school, on Fridays, there is no homework, and on Wednesdays, they do P.E. in school. Even if they haven’t fully grasped the concept of time, they learn to associate different days with different activities.

You can also use visuals or signs when you recite the days of the week, which can help non-speaking children participate in this activity.

I have recorded a video of the song “Days Of The Week” with Lámh signs. Luckily the days of the week are the same for Lámh and Irish Sign Language, so this song can also help teachers who are working with deaf students using ISL.

You can watch that video here.

Hi there,

Welcome to the sign of the week.

One of our generation’s values to pass on to our children is the love for our planet.
I know this is a topic all schools work on by building habits like disposing of waste in bins.

Children can also learn to recycle by repurposing items instead of throwing them away. Making a robot with cardboard boxes and making a bowling set from plastic bottles can be fun while learning about repurposing.

Students with additional needs can also get involved in recycling in the classroom, and to help you with this, in today’s video I will teach you the sign for RECYCLE.

I hope you enjoy practising this new sign while teaching your students how to recycle and repurpose items in school.

Hi there,

Welcome to the sign of the week.

In this video, you will learn the sign for TURN (as in your turn/my turn).

Turn-taking is an essential skill for language development, social skills, and play skills. Children with special needs often need opportunities to learn turn-taking, so make sure you dedicate time to activities that teach this skill.

Start with simple activities where the child doesn´t have to wait long for his/her turn—for example, rolling a ball back and forth or building a tower of blocks together.

When the child is comfortable doing these with you, you may consider helping your student taking turns with another child.

Using visual supports, such as the sign for turn, will help the child learn this skill.

To make the sign for turn, you will point to the person and then, point to the activity or object.

Hi there,

Welcome to the sign of the week.

In this video, I teach you a sign you will need when playing games with your students. The sign is: TO WIN.

My favourite games for children are activities where they have to cooperate.
Games such as the blindfolded obstacle course, or the spider web game, require children to help each other win.

These games are great tools for encouraging children to work together.
Team games will also give your students the chance to get to know each other, and more importantly, have fun together.

You can practice lots of fun team games, providing opportunities for your students to be champions and WIN at those games.
