Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For Recycle

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.

Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For Turn

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.

Lámh Sign For To Win

Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For To Win

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.

Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For Superhero

Hi there,

Welcome to the sign of the week.

In this video, I will teach you one of my favourite signs. It’s a “new sign” (added to the Lámh vocabulary two years ago), so you may not have seen it before. It’s the sigs for SUPERHERO. I love teaching this sign to my young students while we play battles between Spiderman and some villains or colour the characters of the new cartoons Superhero Girls. I hope you enjoy practising this sign with all your students in school, a sign they will surely love!

Lámh Sign For Please

Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For Please

Sign Of The Week: Lámh Sign For Please

Hi there,

Welcome to the sign of the week.

One of the signs that parents and teachers often ask me for is the sign for PLEASE.
So, I thought you would like to try it too!

While it is important for all children to learn manners and words associated with politeness, children with language delays might need more time to understand and learn how and when to use these words.

So, when is the best time to introduce social words to children with language delay?

It is best to wait until a child can communicate their needs and wants, make choices, and use basic language to interact with others (using words, signs or pictures).

Words such as please and thank you are associated with politeness, but those words don´t carry helpful and essential information to the child. It is crucial to focus on pragmatic language first before considering introducing words like please and thank you.

However, once the child can communicate basic needs and wants, they might be ready to learn social words such as PLEASE.

So, we´ll practice lots of politeness in the classroom, as the sign of the week is PLEASE.
