    Just wondering why the video and the flash card are not the same cereal sign I have seen on other sites.

    ADMIN – Hi Nadia,

    Cereal can be signed in a couple of different ways. The other common way of signing cereal looks like you are making your dominant hand into a scoop and scooping cereal out of a bowl (made from your non-dominant hand). Both ways are equally correct.

    I have seen the sign done as someone spooning cereal into their mouth.

    ADMIN – Hi Sheridan,

    Yes, cereal can also be done that way. If that variation is easier for you, feel free to use it.
