There are numerous ways that signing numbers can be used in the classroom.
Use group numbers for small group instruction or learning centers. Hold up the number sign that corresponds when needed.
Count down from 10 silently by holding your arm up in the air. Eventually, students will take notice and quiet down, transition, or do whatever it is that this signal means in your class. There are many options!
Sign a predetermined number silently for children to know if the volume level in the room is appropriate.
Consider your current classroom management habits and consider using sign language with them.
Similar to letter and language acquisition, signing numbers can assist children in learning simple math concepts and how to apply them.
