To sign show, open your non-dominant hand with fingers separated, and point to the center of your palm with your dominant index. This is a directional sign. Once you have the index in the center of the palm, point with the open hand in the direction that corresponds to the party you are attempting to convey with the sign. "Show me," for example, pulls the hand toward oneself, whereas "show you" points toward the listener.

    In an attempt to teach my daughter (1 year old) the sign for more she transposed it to index finger to palm. She’s got please down though! My son transposed signs as a baby too and would eventually do them right so we’re not too worried. It helps so much when they know just a few!

    My grand baby just turned 1 she is not deaf but she has picked up an new habit of takimg her pinger and hitting the palm of her hand with it. Trying to find out if it means anything.

    You might want to check with her daycare provider.

    My grandson is learning some sign language. He isn’t deaf but I wanted to know how to sign his name “Jonathan”. He is too little to learn the alphabet. Thanks.

    ADMIN – Hi Sandy,

    All names are finger-spelled so it is best that we just teach them the sign for baby plus their initial.

    What does it mean finger to Palm sign in a toddler

    ADMIN – Hi Helen,

    Finger to palm is usually the sign for Jesus. Perhaps the child learned the sign at church.
