It’s about time we learnt the sign language for happy birthday. Somebody in primary is always having a birthday we should know this by now. It’s simple to. Make your index finger and thumb into a circle, this is your birthday badge. And where do birthday badges go? on your chest. Tap it gently twice.
There is one little lady in primary that has been working extra hard through the week to learn all the sign language for the songs we are learning. We are very proud of her for trying so hard, and for the support from her mum. So missy, this signing video is especially for you, as we’ve heard it’s your favourite………Jesus wants me for a sunbeam
Here’s a bit of help for those keen kids in primary that want to learn a bit more during the week 🙂 This will be the song were signing for Mother’s Day. Don’t worry if you think it’s too fast, we’re going to practise the quick bits in primary together and make a game out of it, so just have a go.

This weeks sign language is KNOW. Simply take your prime hand in a thumbs up position and place your thumb next to your temple on your head.
All the children have learnt enough signs from all the different songs we have learnt, to now sign this year’s primary theme, “I know the scriptures are true”. Well done kids!
Sorry for such a late post this week. The children learnt a whole new song in sign on sunday so we’re just going to take one of the signs from the song as the sign of the week.
The sign of the week is RIGHT (as in right and wrong). Take your prime hand (writing hand) and make a fist, lay your other hand flat, with palm up. Place your fist firmly down onto your palm.
We’ve been preparing to teach the children to sign the chapel doors, and as a result have been practising before hand at home. A certain very bright young lady has picked this up just from watching bits and pieces and using signs she already knows. Click on the link to see how well she did….Maleah signing The Chapel Doors
Here’s is a video of Kai trying to sign Stand for the Right. I have to point out he’s had no extra help learning this at home before signing and that it was everyones first time learning it today. It still amazes how fast the kids can pick up the signs and it helps them to learn the words faster too. I’m super proud of all of them!
As part of the Primary Program we encourage the children to learn all 13 articles of faith by heart. Any sort of actions are great for helping kids remember anything, so it’s a great idea to pick just one article of faith that you can learn to sign with your child. We’ve got the first one sorted for you here, but will have them all on a special page just for the articles of faith soon.
