Where in Sign Language

Learn how to sign where. Where things happen is often of great curiosity to kids!

1. Hold one hand up with the pointer finger extended and the rest of the fingers folded into the palm.
2. Wag the pointer finger back and forth a few times.
3. This sign looks like you are pointing back and forth to where something might be. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Play interactive games for children involving a hide and seek. Choose something to hide and then ask, “Where is the (toy, ball, etc.)”? For infants, you can hide the item under a blanket nearby. For older children, hide it and give glues for where they can look. Sign where as you search!
  • Kids loose things – it just happens! When searching for a lost item, sign where together.
