Series 2 Lesson 8: Food: Snacks

Signs
Description of Sign Action


candy
Move the index finger of a right "D" hand in a downward motion against the right cheek. Repeat.
cheese
Move a right "C" hand from side to side while touching the right wrist against the left wrist, palm turned slightly upward.
chips
Touch the thumb of a right "C" hand to the index finger of a left "D" hand that is held slightly in front of the body, palm down.
cookie
Using a cupped, "C" hand as a cookie cutter, twist out a cookie on the counter of your extended left hand.
crackers
Touch the thumb side of a right "S" hand against the left elbow. History note: An old European custom was to crumble the crackers in this manner into a soup bowl that was placed under the left elbow.
fruit
Move the index finger and thumb of a right "F" hand across the right cheek, front to back.
ice cream
Move a right "S" hand from the lips downward and across the chin as if eating an ice cream cone.
nuts
Touch the thumb of a right "A" hand against the mouth and then move forward. Hint: The motion suggests biting a nut or perhaps even cracking the shell with the front teeth.
pie
Use the right hand to pantomime cutting a triangle pie piece in the palm of the upturned left hand.
popcorn
Alternate moving each hand from an "S" hand to a "D" hand, as if corn is popping.
snacks
Use the fingertips of the right "f" hand to pantomime picking food up from the palm of the upward-turned left hand and then moving the fingertips to the lips.
