Four in Sign Language

How to sign the number 4? Hold up all five fingers on your dominant hand, make sure you can see your palm, then curl your thumb into your palm. The number four is easy to sign because the thumb moves very naturally into your palm and your fingers are extended upward.

Teaching Tips

  • Gently curl their thumb into their palm
  • Use treats or toys to show the difference between 4 and many
  • Cheer them on! Make sure you get enthusiastic about your babies signing. Keep them excited about learning.
