Check out last week's sign of the week if you missed it on my Facebook page. Facebook HearMyHands
Book. So what book have you read using sign language? Or - what book do you wish you could read with a little sign?
Here's an added bonus you won't find from last week's Facebook post.
Tips when Signing and Reading:
- Add signs to favorite books, especially ones read over and over again. Don't ever stress about signing the whole book -that's not practical :)!
- Books with a single picture or word per page allow the baby to focus on just one sign at a time. Try simple baby vocabulary books.
- Repetitive books allow you, the signer, to use the same sign (or signs) again and again. Try the Five Little Monkeys, Brown Bear, or Goodnight Moon.
- Make your own books with signs from the included sign dictionary (photocopy or from a computer), or take photographs of the baby signing his/ her first signs. Match them with photographs or clip art that represent the sign. Insert them into small photo albums and read together.
- Make books with photos taken during outings, including walks, zoos, farms, playgrounds, and friends’ or relatives’ houses. When you look through them, use the signs of the animals from the zoo or farm, or family signs such as sister, brother.
- And Don't Forget - Have fun!
