Watch is signed by resting your dominant hand on top of the wrist of your non-dominant hand, as if indicating the watch that you are wearing. First, form the letter 'F' (fingers spread out while pointer finger and thumb touch) and hold down its circular part to the top of your wrist, indicating the face of the watch.
Use the watch flash card when your child begins to show interest in watches, or if you want to introduce the child to the concept of simple counting or time.
Use the watch flash card to slowly introduce your child to the concepts of time, schedules, and waiting patiently for their turn for something.

Hi! In response to the above comment, would you point to your eye as a sign for “video”? Thank you!
ADMIN – Hi Maura,
A friend of ours signs the sign for TV plus points to her eye for video.
Is “watch” or your wrist and “watch”ing a movie or “watch” me going to the same sign for watch?
Also is there a sign for “and”, “then”
ADMIN – Hi Rosemarie,
Watching is signed by pointing at your eye. As for and and then those are advanced signs not suitable for a toddler.
Hi! In relation to Tiffany’s comment… what do I use to point the sign with to the direction of what I am watching? do I point my fingers (the three that are “free” toward the item? Or do I point with the “round face of the watch” that I formed using my thumb and pointer? Thanks!
ADMIN – Hi Ging,
Your dominant hand creates the watch which you wear in your non dominant arm. You are making the sign to the person watching you
I was wondering if there was a sign for “watching” or “watch” in the term of: “I am watching you”, or “Watch this!”? Thank you!
ADMIN – Hi Tiffany,
You can vary the sign to indicate what you are watching. If you are watching the child, make the sign toward them. If you want them to watch something, point the sign in that direction. Children find that directional pointing very intuitive.
