The sign for sheep looks like you are shearing a sheep. You put your non-dominant hand out and across in front of your body, then you make your dominant hand into shears by extending your index and middle fingers.
To perform the sign, open and close your middle and index fingers while moving the shears along your non-dominant hand, as if you were operating the shears. It's as if you're cutting the wool along the sheep's back.
Sheep is a more complex sign, which is great for older babies with a bit more signing experience. Once they learn the sign, babies love the idea of shearing the imaginary sheep.
Baa … Baa! Remember to use sounds to help make the flash cards more memorable and to activate more senses.
