Signing: Sit in baby sign language looks like a person sitting on a ledge. Start by holding your weak hand horizontally, with index and middle finger extended to make the ledge. Take your strong hand with index finger and middle finger extended into a hook to make the person’s legs, and sit them on the ledge.
Usage: Sit is a good sign for older toddlers that are ready to learn more control. Sit, is a good way to calm down their state. You can take a child from running around to sitting using the sign, and that will help them mentally transition to another activity like eating or drawing.
