Mr. P. Visits the Zoo

Signing with your child allows you a glimpse into their thoughts before spoken language takes hold. Rather than trying to guess what your child wants by interpreting pointing and grunts, you know what is interesting to them and they'd like to talk more about!

One place that is lots of fun to use signs is the zoo.  There are so many fun things to see and learn during a zoo visit.  Using signs your child recognizes can help him connect with new information, as well as help you know what he's seeing and curious about!

In this picture, Mr. P. is pointing out the interesting BIRDS all around - do you see his sign?!

Detective Eyes: Miss E. Loves to Help!

It's been a little while, but I'M BACK!

I'll be bringing you several posts featuring various kiddos I have had the pleasure of including in my classes.  Their signs may not look exactly like your little one's, and that is OK.  Just like early spoken words don't sound exactly like ours (adults in general), early signs don't look just like the pictures in the book.  By watching different children sign at different ages, your detective eyes will become stronger and stronger!

Have a still picture or video of your little one signing you'd be willing to share for a future post? Please contact me at SigningWithMissSteph@Gmail.com.  I'd love to include you!

OK - on to today's video:

Miss E. loves to help her Mommy and Daddy who are LuLaRoe retailers (you can check them out here).  She just wants to push MORE and MORE boxes - can you catch her MORE sign?

Want to see this success for yourself?
