Mom in Sign Language

Learn how to sign mom. She’s a pretty important lady.

1. Hold one hand up, fingers slightly apart and palm flat.
2. Touch your thumb of that hand to the corner of your mouth.
3. Mom’s speak gentle words and smile. Use this visual to help you remember the sign. In addition, many of the feminine signs are done near the corner of the mouth.

Teaching Tips:

  • Take out some family pictures. Help your child point to mom and practice the sign.
  • Teaching sign language to babies is lots of fun when the whole family is involved. When your baby looks at mom, reinforce with a delighted “MOM!”, supported by the sign. Watch him light up as over time he realizes the name and the sign go with that very special person in his world.

Open your hand and touch your thumb to your chin. Sign mom. Mom!
