Teach your baby to sign “sit”
Hand Shape: both hands have the pointer and the middle finger fully extended while the remainder fingers are folded under
Location: in front of your chest
Tip: one tap of the fingers is a noun and two becomes a verb
Action: tap your extended fingers from your right hand on top of the left at the knuckle
Bonus: Sample sentence: “Hey do you mind, the chair over there-go ahead and sit.” So you saw the difference between the two taps and the one tap…one being the noun, which would be two taps, and the verb would be the one tap.
