Hello Signing Families,
As the weather changes even more there is so many more signs to add to your baby’s vocabulary. Check out lots of fun links in this week’s news, as well as seasonal topics in class.
Tip of the Week:
The real estate agents have it right: Location! Location! Location! Not only do you want to pay careful attention to whether your hands need to be held in a certain place when you’re learning new signs, you need to be able to interpret your child’s early attempts to replicate signs – even when they aren’t in the right spot. Take as an example the signs for MILK andORANGE, which in small hands might be somewhat interchangeable. If your little one has been introduced to both of these signs, your job is to fill in context as best you can in order to understand their intended message. And don’t be afraid to gently correct them.
This Week in Class:
If anyone wants to order Signing Time products for themselves or friends for the holidays (or anytime), please let me know. I offer them at a discount and without shipping costs that apply on the ST website. It’s easiest to order in a lump, so if there are folks interested, I’d like to gather orders and do it all at once. I am able to order anything on the site for you: all Baby Signing Time DVDs, books, flashcards etc., but also anything from the general Signing Time series (I have a few favorite DVDs I’d recommend). I do have a small number of things in stock already. Feel free to email with questions.
Sign on, Kitty
Come see what your child has been waiting to tell you!
Expectant parents welcome.
Older siblings welcome.
