Take Turns

To sign take turns, your dominant hand forms the letter 'L' with the thumb up and index finger pointed at a right angle, while the rest of the fingers remain curled. You start the motion of pointing the thumb close to your chest, and rotating your thumb toward the other party, then back to you, as if pointing out whose turn it is.

SIGN USAGE

We use take turns when introducing babies to advanced social skills such as sharing. It is important that parents wait long enough to make certain that sharing does not trigger frustration.

    Hi! Just wondering if you have any figures/images that I can use in a visual to indicate “my turn” rather than “take turns”? Thanks!

    ADMIN – Hi Cassandra,

    I don’t; but customized images are available at cost. Feel free to email me at [email protected]

    Please, we have searched for a sign which means: “take me (in your arms)”. We have searched in the dictionary word by word but we didn’t find any thing for similar use. Can you suggest us what word and sign to use for this? Thank you in advance.

    ADMIN – Hi Luis,

    I use the sign for pick me up which is basically your dominant hand with index pointed up traveling up from the center of your body to the height of your neck.
