Video Transcript: Hi, and welcome to Sign Baby Sign. This week’s word is Left and Right. “L” for left and you would move left. “R” for right and you would move right. So you could say (and sign) “your left leg or your right arm”.

Take your hand and make an “L”, like this. Fold your fingers to make the “L”. Now go left.
