Make the teacher sign by signing teach and then person. First, sign by placing both hands on the sides of your head and closing your fingers and your thumbs a short distance away from your forehead, in close proximity to your ears. Finish the sign by holding your parallel, open palms facing each other, and bring them down from shoulder level to waist level, completing the sign for person.
This combo sign may not be suitable for very little ones.
We use teacher as soon as our baby starts engaging in group learning activities, or at church with their Sunday School teacher.
We teach the sign for teacher as soon as our babies or toddlers begin to participate in educational activities such as daycare or Kinder Music.
