At Little Hands & Me we promote the ease of including baby sign language into your daily activities!! That’s right, when you join our Network you will be filled with easy to remember tips, tools and play to support your parenting adventure (including signing with your baby, toddler and preschoolers)!

Baby sign language is educational, promotes connection and the concept of a child feeling safe, and most of all enjoyable for parents, and little ones alike!!

Want a few tips on how to bring signing into your, let’s go on an adventurous journey!

MORNING TIME:

Peek A Boo is an AMAZING game to play in the morning! Ask your little one “Where is mom?” Pop in from the hall way or poke your head out of the sheets and say “Here is ‘MOM’!” while signing mom. These small signing games will bring a smile to your little one as they will see you and begin to recognize then sign ‘MOM’ back. Plus, why not start the morning off with a fun game that teaches: words, signing and object permanence!

What is your morning routine? Pick 2-5 signs today to start using: diaper, wet, clean and dirty may be the baby signs you use!

ON THE GO:

If you live in a city, like Saskatoon, you will likely be hitting red lights on your way to Baby Sign or Salsa Babies class! This is an excellent time to pop in your baby sign music and start signing and singing. Your child will LOVE the music, which is fun, upbeat and enjoyable plus provides repetition and learning. AND always drive with care.

 

Grocery shopping? I loved signing with Elijah during these trips. We would SEE all the FRUIT and VEGGIES to sign! Plus would combine words, “See the oranges?”, should be buy, “PURPLE or GREEN GRAPES?”. The community provides amazing ways to see the signs in real life!

 PLAY TIME:

Using Child Led Play provides MANY opportunities for signing, play and exploration. Follow their lead… with what toy is your child playing? Perhaps it is a RED BALL, to be more language rich, the “SMALL BALL is RED”.  Let yoru child know the words and language of what toy they are most interested in.

BED TIME:

Signing is great to help with transitioning from meal time, to play time and finally bed time. Signing what your routine is every night will help your child to transition from playing to a more calm and relaxed state.

We would love to hear from you other ways to bring signing into your day. Join My Smart Hands Saskatoon for a class and learn even more ideas and ways to bring signing into your daily activities. Remember the key is to be able to communicate with your child in meaningful ways!
