- Practice this sign at mealtimes when you are first introducing it. Offer just a piece or two of a favorite food. Once it has been eaten, ask your child, “Do you want more?” and sign. You can encourage him to sign back by gently tapping his own fingertips together at first. As soon as you see the sign (independent or with guidance), exclaim, “MORE! Okay! Let’s have some more. Yummy!!” Using food is quite motivating and makes this sign one of the easiest ones to pick up.
