Each day we have a new theme to refine and test your Makaton skills, see how much you can improve your knowledge with our weekly 7-day insights:
Monday: Sign of the Week
Every Monday we release a Sign of the Week , see if you can introduce this new sign into your daily use of Makaton.
Tuesday: Topic Tuesday *
Topic Tuesday focuses on a topic, showing videos relating to the topic. For example Breakfast might be the topic, and we will show you 4 related signing videos such as porridge, toast, cereal, croissant.
Wednesday: Which Wednesday
Test your Makaton symbol knowledge and correctly identify which symbol is being named in the quiz, check the answer sheet in library to see if your first guess was right.
Thursday: Thesaurus Thursday *
Each week we will focus on a concept that can be used for several words, supporting with teaching you how to use one sign for different meanings. Clever stuff! For example, you can use the sign for ‘Cold’ and say either chilly, chilled, winter, freezing or cool, and alter your facial expression and body language to support.
Friday: Fun Friday
Guess the symbol from the snapshot given in the image. We give you a little clue to try and figure it out. Check the answer sheet in the library to see if you guessed it right.
