For our Tot School time, we have been learning to sign with Baby Signing Time. I can't say how much I love these videos!
We are working through 2 at a time and are on the first two:
In Volume 1 "It's Baby Signing Time" we learned the signs for:
- eat, drink, cracker, water, cereal
- milk, banana, juice, finished
- Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa,
- diaper, potty, more
- bird, fish, cat, dog, horse, frog
- hurt, where, baby
and in Volume 2 "Here I Go" we are learning the signs for:
- shoe, sock, hat, coat,
- please, thank you, sorry,
- car, train, bus, bike, airplane, boat
- ball, doll, bear,
- wash hands, soap, bath, brush teeth,
- book, pajamas, blanket, sleep
I think we all (the whole family) have mastered the first video, so we will add the 3rd video in this week and continue on with the 2nd one as well. (I ordered all 4 Baby Signing Times and the first 5 Signing Time videos plus flashcards. I wish I has ordered the books and flashcards for the Baby series ~ they would be really helpful to have.)
Here are just a few photos that I caught of Elli learning to sign:
She also knows a few more signs from watching the previews (like grumpy) that she uses (as seen in the activity below).
Matching the barrette to the matching colored headband. (Anything that goes in here hair is a "pretty" so we call this Pretty Matching)
She was having a hard time closing the barrette and was quite grumpy about it. So, I had her sign grumpy for me.
Then she showed me "crying" and by the time we were done, she was being goofy and having fun.
I have taught my babies to sign before they can talk, but I have stuck to the basics (please, yes, no, thank you, finished, eat, drink) but as soon as they started talking, we quit signing. If I had known about these videos, I would have signed a lot more with them and continued on with it. So I am really happy to have these.
Head on over to 1+1+1=1 to see what other tots are doing for school!
