We are committed to providing resources for parents who value signing with their children. Our sign language dictionary includes over 400 common signs including the top starter sings for your baby. For each word, there is a video, diagram, and teaching notes to make learning new signs easy. Many of our signs include free downloadable ASL Flashcards to help reinforce the signs taught in our series.
Me in Sign Language
Learn how to sign me. It’s a good sign to be using as your child establishes a sense of self.
1. Take one hand, pointer finger extended and the remaining fingers tucked into the palm, and then point to yourself. The finger does not quite touch the chest at the end.
2. You point to yourself to sign me! Use this concept to help you remember the sign.
- Encourage your child to use this sign by phrasing opportunities with, “Who wants to ______?” (go to the park, play a game, go outside, etc.). Have your child sign me, and eventually also follow it with the sign for please!
- Baby sign language can help establish a sense of self. Sign “me” and “you”, pointing first to yourself and then to baby. Make it a game and add a little tickle at the end.
Me. I take my finger and point to me. Me me me.
