Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For Quiet

Hi there,

Welcome to the Sign Of The Week.

At this stage, you probably know that I am a huge advocate for communications systems, such as sign language, right?

But I don´t want you to just take my word for it.

There is tons of research out there, and I want to share the results of one of these studies. Listen to this…

Did you know that when you use signs with instructions, children are 4 times more likely to respond?

Yes, 4 times more likely! This was the finding of a study done by Carbone et al (2006) with children with autism. This study showed that speech and signs training produced four times the number of responses of speech alone training. The researchers explained in the conclusions that one of the reasons for this may be because of the visual cues that signs provide.

Using signs in the classroom (or in our virtual sessions with students) help our students see as well as hear what is being communicated, therefore, it contributes to greater understanding, which, in turn, contributes to more cooperation and learning in the classroom.

So, this week, I want to teach you a sign that you can use when giving instructions to your students.

This sign is QUIET.

You can use the QUIET sign to get your student´s attention before starting an activity, when you explain the “rules of circle time”, or even to teach children to use a “quiet voice” instead of a loud voice in the classroom.

So, the sign of the week, starting on Monday the 25th of January is QUIET.

Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For Glove

Hi there,

Welcome to the Sign Of The Week.

It’s freezing outside 🌨… We would prefer to stay snuggled inside, but a walk around the block is the perfect break after home-schooling all morning.

Just wrap up and go out! And in doing that, you might use this great opportunity to teach children signs for clothing items, like the sign for GLOVES.

The sign of the week, starting on Monday the 18th of January, is GLOVES.

So, the sign of the week, starting on Monday the 18th of January is GLOVE.

Sign Along To Summer Holiday By Cliff Richard

Last summer, one evening while I was driving home from work, a song came on the radio. It was “Summer Holiday” by Cliff Richard. It’s a catchy little song, and it caught my attention (I must confess that when I am driving, I can’t help listening carefully to the lyrics of all the songs I hear, to see if they would be suitable for me to make a carpool karaoke version with Lámh signs 🙂

I was so excited when I heard Cliff Richard’s song as it’s perfect for signing! I made a mental note to record the song with signs for the summer of 2020.
Well, no need to explain why I ended up scratching that off the plan a few weeks ago.
No summer holidays abroad this year 🙁

We usually go to Barcelona every summer to spend time with all my family. We all love it, and it’s always so much fun for the kids. This year, however, we have decided not to travel. We all need to play our part to stop the spread of this nasty virus, so instead, we’ll be staying in Ireland taking day trips and supporting local businesses.

When we made the decision not to travel, I was sad that we wouldn’t see my family this summer. Now I’ve decided to make the most of the situation and have a fun summer here at home with the kids.

With this in mind, I decided to go ahead with the song and make a sing-and-sign along video. I certainly had a laugh when recording it on the beach. I was trying to capture a beautiful sunny day by the sea, and we ended up having to run home soaking wet as we got caught in a downpour!

It’s a fun and easy song to sign, so sign-along with me!

Wishing you a sunny summer holiday,

Lámh Signs For Summer

If summer is your favourite time of the year, then you and I have something in common!

I know that this year most of us won’t be doing the usual holidays and there will be little travel abroad, so I am thinking of getting creative and maybe having some camping in the garden for the kids one night, with an improvised campfire included.

With the long weekend ahead and glorious sunshine, today I am going to teach you some Lámh signs for summer that you can practice with your child while playing in the garden.

Garden games are great because they require very little preparation while they offer hours of fun, especially if there is water or sand involved. I am loving also the easiness of garden games, light on rules and heavy on fun, we all needed it after having been parenting and home teaching for the past while.

So make a jug of refreshing lemonade, blow up the paddling pool, and enjoy the long weekend. And remember to add some Lámh to your garden games.
