Signing With Children: Week Four Transport

Week four of our signing with children course is transport.

If you’re anything like us vehicles aplenty will have arrived in your house over the Christmas break so hopefully these signs will be well timed.

Your little one’s enthusiasm for their new toys, is a great way to inspire them to learn new language. Whenever they point to a vehicle, or start to play with one just start to do the sign alongside the word. With consistency you’ll be really surprised just how quickly they start to pick it up.

In our house the aeroplane and tractor signs are the current favourites with the Lion.

This week’s song will give you a whole batch of signs to get started with and I’ve also included a couple of extras in the introduction to the video just in case you need them.

As always if there’s a particular sign you would like to see them please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Don’t forget if you’ve missed our earlier posts you can find out more about Farm Animal Signs, Travel Signs, and of course our fun Dog Song over on YouTube.

There‘s also an Introduction to Signing With Children, for those of you just starting you Sign Language journey.

As always if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch. And if you haven’t already why not subscribe to our YouTube channel to get notifications when new signing videos are released.

  1. Hey I’m going to get some training done tonight to use with my boys tomorrow. They have two deaf boys in their classes and I really want them to increase their interactions with them if possible. Going to be reading and watching all your stuff. Thanks for this!! Luke

  2. I attended a mother and baby group that did some baby signing and it was really useful in the early days. Unfortunately I never kept it up. These days we’re learning a new language in our family for our adopted country x

  3. This is so cool. I did a bit of Makaton with my kids when they were young, as it’s so useful pre-speech and now the eldest is learning signs in school, which I think is fab. He has just finished a unit on transport, so I’ll show him this video – he’ll be amazed anyone outside of school knows it, I’m sure!

  4. This is fantastic! I love learning new signs, I would love to host you on my blog sometime! I think it’s so important for children, regardless of hearing impairment to learn a different way to communicate and we found it useful when our son was younger

  5. This is such a great idea, we did signing with my daughter when she was younger but we sadly didn’t keep it up as we should have. It really helped us communicate before she became verbal.

  6. Oh wow! Just watched whilst Joseph sat at side of me and he asked ‘what’s it called?’ So now he’s searched on the iPad and currently watching again 😆

  7. Oh I love this! We did an 8 week Baby signing course with our first child and learnt about 250 signs. We still use the signs 7yrs later. I really want to go back and learn more…

  8. I did sing and sign with Henry and loved it. He still uses some signs from the class. I really should do it with Georgie. It would be a great way for them to communicate in other ways as they get older and meet different children. Lovely video and you are very welcoming x

  9. Thank you for this series. My three year-old is learning to sign at school. She comes home and signs Mummy plus wheels, and it’s one of the best things ever.

  10. I always struggle with the consistency when it comes to teaching signing. My daughter is nearly 2 so picks them up really quickly, but obviously she forgets them again. The only one she can remember is “friends” and that’s from watching too much Mr Tumble!

    1. It can be really hard to remember, I always try to add them when we are reading books which makes it easier as I have a set time xx
