Communicating with gestures

Communication at snack time using hand gestures and spoken language.

Good for looking at

  • Speech, language and communication
  • Snack time
  • Independence


  • Look out for the communication used between the children and the practitioner at snack time. Look out for body language and gestures as well as spoken language.


  • What types of communication did you notice the children and practitioner using?
  • What did you notice about what the children can do for themselves?
