That's one of the great things about Signing Smart - it's meant to fit into the life you're already living. Unlike some of the other programs out there, I will never tell my students they have to sign a particular word every time they say it. Who needs that pressure? Plus, it's just not necessary! Making small adjustments to the way you're already playing - which is the way your baby is built to learn - is all it takes.
Some of our favorite activities to layer with signs:
- Reading books
- Singing songs
- Going to the zoo
- Playing with toys
