Signing: The firefighter sign looks like the brass badge on a firefighter’s helmet. To make the sign you take an open dominant hand and place it on your forehead with the palm facing outward.
Usage: Children often enjoy occupation signs. Use the sign for firefighter, farmer, and teacher along with flash cards to teach them the sign that represents each occupations.
With each occupation you can elaborate and give meaning to the word. For example, with firefighter you can talk about the siren, the fire truck, the fire, and the water coming from the hose.
