I know that they have been working on signing at Jack's new daycare (he has just been there two weeks) but he started making a sign today that I don't know and haven't been able to find online. He carefully places the finger of one hand into the palm of the other. Any ideas?
My mom is thinking that it might be "give me" but isn't sure (she used to teach signing but it has been years).
It could be the sign for "again". I know that it's two fingers and you put them in the palm of your hand. I also thought of the word "Help" which is your thumb up and you place it on your palm. It could also be his way of saying, "More". I'd try to use some context clues.
The problem is that , Like when they start talking, their fine motor skills are lacking...it's the same with signing. My lo (21 months), signs ALOT but her signs are often not perfect. If she learns a new word and I haven't..Oh boy...Am I in trouble. LOL

A lot of times, babies will adapt the sign for "more" which is putting fingertips from both hands together, by placing one finger into the other palm. It's just easier for them. Because of this, a lot of books and popular signing publications will have this as the "baby sign" and a lot of daycare type facilities will teach it this way

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!
If that doesn't fit the situation he's doing it in, then 'again', 'key', 'shoes', 'help', and a couple of others might be it. But most likely since it's being taught at daycare it's going to be 'more'.
