Baby Sign Language and Meal Time

In this video, I am showing how a family can start to incorporate baby sign language as they feed their little. Kaila and I are practicing ASL signs for: “more”, “avocado”, and “all-done”.

 

Parents, often, find that using signs during meal time to be very motivational for their little. This is because soon their little will be able to use signs to communicate basic needs such as “all-done/finished”, “more”, “food” and even specify another food they want to “eat”! Most littles first few signs are often food related as these are very motivational!

Friday Fun with Stones For Learning

We received “Stones For Learning” from RS Stones. I am in love with this product as it is from a Canadian Stone Hand Carver in Mission BC.

These rocks are in three shapes: circle, square and triangle. These three shapes are perfect for allowing even older babies/young toddlers to start identifying shapes Our 4 year old loved to play and string them with a pipecleaner. They also vary in colour as these are all natural products. Other learning that happens with these stones are learning: patterns, shapes, sequencing, counting and basic math.

Below is a youtube video of us signing and playing with these amazing “Stones For Learning” from RS Arts.

Here is a link to RS Arts facebook group. Pop on over and see his other creations or order these stones sets.

Wednesday’s Word (ASL sign)

It’s Wednesday which means we get to play “What is Mr. E Signing?”

 

Baby sign ASL for Stop Saskatoon

 

That’s correct! Mr E is signing “STOP”. This is such a great sign to use with your children as they grow and explore. We will ask Miss K to “STOP” when she starts touching plants, or wanting to put something in her mouth that doesn’t belong there. This  sign can also replace where one may use the word/sign “NO”.
