Sign Of The Week – Coat

Welcome to the Sign Of The Week.

As we move into the end of November and the weather is getting colder, I am going to teach you a sign that you will undoubtedly need from now on: COAT.
Remember that when you introduce a new sign, you should use the new sign with the child as much as possible. So, next week, when you introduce the sign for COAT, make sure you plan other activities to reinforce this new word/sign throughout the day.

Some ideas are:

  • Colour a picture of a coat when doing colouring activities.
  • Play dressing dolls and teddies and use lots of little coats.
  • Read the book “Buster keeps warm” by Rod Campbell.
  • Or sing-and-sign along with me to the song You Won’t Be Cold Anymore!

So, the sign of the week starting on Monday the 23rd of November is COAT.

Sign Of The Week – COAT

Sign Of The Week – PE

Welcome to the Sign Of The Week.

Today I am going to teach you a sign related to one of the school subjects: P.E. (Physical Education).
Based on a natural gesture, The sign for P.E. is quite fun and easy to learn.

Using the sign for P.E. will help your student understand what activity he/she is about to do. Do the sign for your student before you walk to the yard or the P.E. hall, this will help the child transition from the classroom to the yard or school gym.

You can even ask your student to help you bring some of the P.E. equipment to the yard, so you reinforce even further the fact that they are getting ready for the P.E. class.

So, the sign of the week starting on Monday the 16th of November is PE.
