(One's) Turn is signed like the first part of take turns: your dominant hand forms the letter 'L' with the thumb up and index finger pointed at a right angle, while the rest of the fingers remain curled. Then do the motion of pointing the thumb close to your chest, and rotating your thumb toward the other party - signifying your 'turn'.
You can also point the thumb to another person whose turn you want to emphasize.
Teach your baby or toddler the turn sign when introducing them to advanced social skills such as sharing and being patient. It is important that parents wait long enough to make certain that sharing does not trigger frustration.
Use this flash card when you begin to introduce your baby to the idea of collective activities that require cooperation and participation, such as play and work.
