Sheffield 1st Ward Primary

This blog is all about using British Sign Language in Primary. Singing time to be more exact. If you look at the pages on the right side menu you’ll find videos of the songs we are learning for 2012 presentation and more. None of the signs are an official Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints interpretation, because there is no official one. We are just doing the best we know how to include the wonderful deaf girl in our primary.

Signs for Prophet and Play

on February 7, 2011
The church sign for this week is PROPHET. The children learnt this as part of the song they are learning for the presentation. Wiggle your fingers away from your mouth (this is the sign for prophecy), then with the same hand, use your index finger and thumb to move  straight downwards, outlining a man. So essentially the sign is ‘prophecy + man’
The sign for PLAY may look complicated, but is actually really easy once you understand why.  Imagine you have a rubik’s cube in your hand, now twist it back and forth, there you have it! the sign for play, simple!
