Go : To tell the child to go or to do the sign when you are in the car and the light turns green
Goodbye : This is one of the earliest signs that a non-signing child masters, however this is not the extent of their capabilities. Use this sign when entering or leaving an area while saying "hi" or "bye".
Help Me (Alternative) : This is an alternative to American Sign Language that has been used by many infants. It is easier to master this sign than the traditional version.
Potty : This is a great sign to use when introducing potty training to your child. Make this sign whenever you see your child going potty and call his/her attention to it by asking "Are you going potty?" while signing. This makes the child aware of the process and more likely to alert you to his/her needs during the potty traing process.
Rainbow : In teaching child colors: While exploring outside.
Robe : If the child wants to put on a robe
School : If they want to go to school or play school
Scissors : To do arts and crafts
Shoes : Use this sign when referring to shoes. You may find it helpful to ask the child, "What do we need before we go outside? Shoes!" The child may sign shoes whenever he/she wants to play outside and is less likely to fuss because he/she will understand that shoes must be on before leaving.
Towel : They need one to get out of the bath
