How to Teach: Thanking God

There are a few phases to teaching the sign for “Thank You, God.” In this lesson, we’ll find out what they are.

Phase One

Step One

After a meal is served and after a meal is eaten, when a gift is received, or a beautiful lizard or sunset is seen… simply, in any situation where it is appropriate to thank God, sign “Thank You, God.”

After you do this for a week, start phase two of teaching. In phase two, the steps are as follows.

Phase Two

Step One

At appropriate times, sign “Thank You, God.”

Step Two

Make them sign the sign. Help them form the sign with their hand until they can do it on their own.

This is the final phase. This begins after the child regularly signs in response to the signed question and, hopefully, uses that sign independently to express their want/need.

Phase Three

Step One

At appropriate times, sign “Thank You, God.”

Step Two

Wait till they sign before you give it to them.
