To sign circle, start with your index finger of your non-dominant hand pointing forward in front of your body. Then take your dominant hand index finger and make a circle, starting and ending at the stationary index finger of the non-dominant hand.
Shapes like circle, square, and triangle are good intermediate signs. Introduce a few shapes at the same time. The contrast between the shapes helps to teach baby the concepts more easily.
The flash cards a are a great medium to teach the basic shapes to baby. Once they learn to make the association between circle and the flash card diagram, try and help them broaden their understanding of the sign by finding circles in your environment. For example, they may see circles on the wheels of a car.

I love this website, I have been using this for our preschoolers for Deaf and Hard of Hearing. We are learning shapes at the moment, I am looking sign for triangle but there isn’t any… I was wondering do you might have it somewhere or able to make one for triangle? Let me know, thank you.
ADMIN – Hi Bree,
At the moment we don’t have the sign for triangle available. We are hoping to have a mini kit available in the next year with shapes and other concepts available for sale.
I need the sign for triangle.
ADMIN – Hi Kathryn,
Please feel free to contact me if you wish to sponsor the creation of a new flash card. They are available at a nominal cost.
Please please please send me any new flashcards you put online. I love your system and I love your cartoon diagram of how to sigh. These signs are really helpful in my multi-lingual class especially for the students that don’t speak English very well!
Thanks for being a life saver!
